Try last known good configuration: press f8 whilst pc is starting up to get this option (sorry if this is teaching you to suck eggs)

So it's XP! Which one Home or Pro? If it's same OS as yours why not run repair with your XP CD

yer its xp but i think me mate used a hooky copy of xp when it was set up so havnt got the disk is there a way to stop the system crashing !!!

If the F8 options don't work then woodchips suggestions is imo the way forward, repair the installation.

If you have a XP disc then try repair with your disc

PS Do not worry about CD key. It's not on the Disc so computer will not know it's a different disc
