Unhappy PC Problem

Just restarted PC and loaded up as usual - chose OS and then went on to the Windows XP screen with scrolling thingy (loading windows) Then screen just goes blank

Tried last saved good settings, refrshing bios but nothing asof yet working. Don't have my XP cd to hand so cant re-install. Any ideas? Need quick fix as have an essay due soon.

Thanks

If safe mode dont work your gonna need a CD

Boot from XP cd and choose the repair option

when you get to the "DOS" prompt type: chkdsk /r and press enter(dont forget space between k & / )

unless you can hang it in another PC and run from there
chkdsk E:/r ( substituting "E" for correct drive letter )
