Thanks - How can I do that if The screen freezes at boot up - (I can get to set up ) .I also tried booting via XP disk but it kept freezing.

start pc press f8 a continuelly untill you get a boot up screen that gives you the safe mode option.enter for safe mode.
if it freezes before that slave your disk in another machine and run a chkdsk.now try to startup again.
ill stick with ya on this one

also try a boot disk of partition magic that way you can boot upto partition magic and change the drive parameters to how you want it using dos.

that might do the trick that sittas87 is thinking of as well if safe mode doesnt work

Thanks for your help I really appreciate it - Firstly I cannot get it to "safe mode"
I am now going to try another boot disk and see what i can get to from there.
