can not log into XP RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi the problem is , When boot up xp it loads normally then just before it gets to the log in screen it seems to stall for 30 seconds then goes on to the log in screen,I then select user and it says in small print under users name"loading user settings"(or something to that effect) all very normal so far. the windows screen opens but no icons appear, then within a few seconds the screen closes, goes back to the log in screen and saves the user settings, then waits for me to select another user. Which ever user I select it does the same thing,Admin included.
    This happens in all start modes "last good config", "safe mode whatever"
     Ihave tried to reload windows from disc but comp wont boot from CD. checked CMOS to ensure that cd drive was on boot list, it is. when booting cd tries to read win cd then just carries on.  HELP!!!!
