Try using the Last Known Good Configuration.
When the computer is starting, repeatedly tap the F8 key, this should take you to the Windows Advanced Options Menu, once this opens click on Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked).
If this doesn't solve the problem you should do a repair installation, this will not effect you data.
Note: The system repair function will remove any updates you have previously installed that are not included on the CD. Drivers will also be reverted to their original XP versions, as well as some settings (network & performance settings may sometimes be reset to their defaults). It may be necessary to reactivate your Windows XP as well. When finished, you will have to download all of the updates from Microsoft Windows Update, because they are all replaced during repair.
Boot the computer from the XP CD. You may need to change boot order in the BIOS so that the CD-ROM is the first device in the boot order.
When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below
This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:
To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.
To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.
To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.
To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install , press ENTER.
You do not want to choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R.
Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair isn't one of the option end the installation, this will mean that you will need to do a fresh installation of XP.
The repair will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot, the repair installation will continue after the reboot.

To get past the "Access Denied" message you need to just rename the system file and then restart the computer and then you will be able to carry out the commands.
So the commands inside the recovery console would be (in bold):
Change into directory:
Rename the system file to system.bak:
ren system system.bak
Restart the PC:
The you have access in the recvoery console. But don't forget to rename your system file back to normal but I think you will be replacing it anyway during the procedure.
