Okay, well... I looked around and found someone suggested deleting the Hibernation recovery file, which didn't exist on my hard drive, so I skipped that one.
As for the touchpad drivers, I un-installed them to no effect. They were re-installed when I booted it up again, and the touchpad (and keyboard and power button) still stuck.
I also just tried to do a windows repair, but it came up with a fatal error because it couldn't update Internet Explorer, so the repair failed.
I've given up at this point and I'm going to try a format and clean installation, thanks for trying. :x
UPDATE: So apparently trying to repair was a bad idea. I can't start in safe mode anymore (duh) because the installation failed halfway through. On top of that, I can't get the XP disk to load. Once it gets to the "Starting Windows..." step in the initial loading phase, it BSOD's with a STOP SESSION3_INITIALIZATION_FAILED message, code 0x0000006f. It's possible that it's my CD-ROM drive at fault (Which is what a quick Google search suggested), but I think that odd since it loaded up perfectly fine when it was doing the system repair (though the repair may have damaged it somehow?).
So. Any suggestions on how to re-format this silly thing are welcome. I don't have a floppy drive. Is there a way to use a networked CD-ROM drive?
