My computer went nuts on me today, (wouldn't boot windows, blue screen saying something about a registry error, reboot and same thing happens) and i thought id have to take it in. However, i found my xp install cd and went to repair it, and now im stuck. I get to the black screen, (MICROSOFT WINDOWS XP™ Recovery Console. ... Which Windows installation would you like to log onto?)

I press 1 and am never prompted for the admin password. It only lets me type the 1 and nothing else (i don't know if this is normal?) I've searched here, google, yahoo, ask jeeves, and a bunch of other places and no one else seems so be having this problem.

I've pressed enter, which just canceled it. I let it sit, (which it stll is) and nothing has happened. I REALLY don't want to take the computer in, PLEASE tell me that im just really stupid and theres something so obviously easy for me to do to correct this problem.
Thanks!

Well here it gets more difficult. Could be memory errors, a bad CD-ROM drive, a motherboard or hard drive error, or just a dirty CD. Try cleaning the CD. If that doesn't work, you might want to consider visiting a local computer shop. :tazz:
