If you are unable to boot up your Windows XP PC (XP Home or XP Professional), it may be because the boot sector has become corrupted (yet the operating system and data may still be OK). If that is the problem, then this boot disk will enable your PC to ignore the hard disk boot sector, and instead use the boot sector on this boot floppy in order to still boot successfully into Windows XP.

Cheers Oogle for your response, I had to close computer down and go out for the evening, but here I am obviously working on my main computer.

I have just switched on my other computer and it booted straight to the CMOS, with this Nag.

"During the last boot-up your system hung for an improper CPU external speed setting. Your system is now working in Safe mode ( BUS:100Mhz DRAM:100Mhz PCI:33Mhz ) To optimize the system performance and reliability, make sure the CPU speed conforms to the specifications of your CPU."

I have done that, but alas I still get the screen freeze or the boot straight to CMOS.
