I just got my computer back from the shop today. No problems, after, booted fine. I was told to uninstall C# 2008, SQL Server, and I uninstalled one more thing myself. I then updated iTunes, and my Blackberry software (to 5.0.) I restart for iTunes (Manually) and now Windows will not go to the desktop. It makes the Start-Up sound, but does nothing. I'm pissed at myself, cause I think that it's probably from unitalling SQL Server and SQL Server Compact, and something alse to do with C# (I think it was some of the redistributables.) If anyone can help, that would be great. My Mom will be so pissed at me if she finds this out....

Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

Type: chkdsk /r

It's important to have a space before the "/".

To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
