I am afraid that I have this very same problem I posted just now without looking and I just saw this. I hope someone answers either of these posts because I am now watching them.

Lets try going to Safe Mode again,this time,select Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Once the Command Screen appears,carefully type in these commands

cd\ and hit enter

copy C:\WINNT\$NtServicePackUninstall$\wininet.dll c:\winnt\system32 and hit enter


If you place the cd in the drive and restart the PC,what happens then?

Sounds like you may need to reset some configurations in the BIOS to get thepc to boot from a CD

Look at this article and scroll down to Boot from the Windows XP CD

See if this link helps you out.

If I understand correctly you can not boot the computer in any mode. If you have the original XP cd your best bet would be a repair installation of XP as described in a pinned topic at the top of this forum.

Please do what Coachwife6's suggested instead of doing the repair installation. This problem does not require a repair installation and easily fixable.
