ok at this point you need to have the windows xp cd. let me know ifyou have it and I can walk you through the process of repairing your system. you will also need the cd key.

thanks,

boot from the cd (make sure its not like a dell recovery cd. if it is it will wipe your computer).
don't choose the repair option. go through like you are going to install windows. It will eventually check for existing installs and prompt you about repairing. it will then go through the process of the install/repair. this is what we call overlaying the operating system.

once it completes you will need to reapply the service pack and all criticall patches from windows update.

you could also boot from the xp cd. choose the first repair option. then run sfc /scanow. this will perform a system file check and replace unrecognized version. Most techs here recomends sfc option, however I prefer the first option. either way you still have to reapply the service pack and critical patches.
