after pressing F10 for recovery i keep getting this and it will not recover
stop:c0000218(registry file failure)
the registry cannot load the hive (file)
or it's log or alternate
it is corrupt,absent,or not writable.

and when i press F8 it will ask for which drive to clear and when i pick drive c; it will then ask me foe the administrators password i do not know this
all i want to do is reset it to it's factory setting's i did not give it a date or a cd with the computer the windows xp home adition was already on it.

Have you tried pressing just the enter key at the password request?
