If you have the equipment, you need to take the hard drive out of your laptop, connect it to a usb adapter and test it with another computer.

under safe mode f8 did you choose use last known good configuration? windows does this from updates from time to time. if not i'll tell you the other way to fix it easy with the xp cd.

@Muizz2411 you can reformat it, but your going to lose any files you may want to keep. the other option you can try is to boot from the xp cd and go as if you are trying to install a fresh copy of xp, but when you get to the screen where you choose the drive to install a new copy you should get an option to Repair and will reload all windows files in the windows directory to boot and then you can backup all your documents. Then i would advise to make a clean install and format to clean up any other issues this has created. Genereally after a repair in XP the system does run a little sluggish in this state, but makes it possible to save data.
