Computer got a trojan, dont know what it was. Did a system restore and the computer died. Wouldn't start up said it had a corrupt file which I have no idea what that was anymore cause it won't even get that far anymore. I put in the reinstall disc for the computer that it comes with when u first buy ur computer and it says to Select an item and continue to instal windows XP. O yea, this is a HP laptop.

Any suggestions?

try to do a repair with sfc/scannow and have your XP pro disc ready since it will need to copy those files from the disc. Here is an excellent tutorial on that subject.

Have you tried "Last Known Good Configuration"?

"What to Do When XP or 2000 Won't Boot".
"Guide to Windows XP Recovery Features".
