Click Start > Run > Type msconfig
then select boot.ini Tab

What does it say in the top box?
And, is there any of the small boxes ticked?

The BOOT.INI file is on your c:/ drive in the root folder (c:/). This file is checked at bootup to locate where the operation system is that you choose to boot from. If you are running a single operating system then your boot file should look something like this:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect

If you are running a multipule OS machine then depending on your primary OS and where they are located, this will vary a little

ok,guys its allright!!
i fixed it with win rescue xp!!
but i have another problem!
i just installed the cordless desktop optical from logitech(mouse+keyboard)
they both works fine but when i start up my pc, the icon of i touch(software for logitech) appears and when i moved my mouse over it,it dissapeard!!
so i think when i start up my pc,the software for logitech does not start up!!
there are some buttons on my keyboard that doesn't work because the software doesn't start up
do you guys understand,because i am not to good with my english
