Windows XP will not boot properly. Can't boot using safe mode, can't use last known good configuration. I have tried everything I know to do shy of a format and reinstall.

Hello Broni and thank you for replying so quickly.

Yes I do. I must tell you that I have booted using the XP cd but the problem remains. Even with the cd I can't start using safe mode, last known good configuration, disable restart or whatever that one is.
Right before the computer got stuck in this loop, all of my desktop icons disappeared. Nothing is listed under the C drive.
