Or you can go to your BIOS by pressing one of the keys and then change the primary boot drive to your cd rom drive (usually d Then load your XP CD back in and do repair. If the repair doesn't do it then do an install but don't format your stuff.

See, there are easier ways to deal with stuff then just reformating everytime you run into a problem guys.

don't format just yet. put your(2) hard drive in another (1)computer and boot up. use the (1) computer and log on, browse your bad hard (2) drive and save all the files that you want on a cd. if its only your os is screwed you should be able to do this task.

if you can get rid of winme i highly recommend it, its the worst operating system ever. try to get a copy of winxp (ligit copy) or win98(ligit copy) and format your drive and do a fresh install.

never lend that person your computer again.
