Can you boot into Safe Mode and in safe mode are you able to get completely to the desktop? Try logging in with normal user account first, if that doesn't work, then try logging in as the Administrator.

i did boot into safe mode, and it asked it I wanted to sign in as the administrator or my normal accout (they don't give me this option when i boot regurally) in safe mode, my background is gone, and there is some microsoft stuff at the top, but the screen is black.

Have you used any registry cleaners? Doing so often causes this.
To fix it please open Ctrl + Alt + Delete and in the "Applications" tab press "New Task" and type sfc /scannow this will have a blue bar and need the windows XP CD, when the Bar gose reboot. It will replace any missing or corrupt files.
Hope this helps.
Fenor just as a note Cleanup some time dose do things like this, any thing form the Windows XP theme going to this or worse. I have seen it about 5 times now (plus once on my computer). Funny thing is every time the person has run a registry cleaner, and several staff have had the same thing when testing it out. There was a thread about it in the hidden staff forums. I thought I would tell you since it come up here.

You will not lose any data. All it will do is delete and replace the operating system files.
You will have to install the updates again from Windows Update, though.
