My PC wont boot up, it displays, " the registry cannot load the hive (file). it may be corrupt, missing or not writable.

This comes up in XP, The dell will not allow me to boot in Safe mode or last known good configuration.

Also when I boot from my XP CDROM, to repair Windows, it asks me for administrator password.

Can any help.

Thanks
