Have you tried system restore? or last known good config? have you performed any changes lately? if all else fails then you could do a repair installation...

Start the operating system from the CD-ROM,

When the computer starts from the CD, the system checks your hardware

and then prompts you to select one of the following options:

To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

Press ENTER.

Press F8 to accept the Licensing Agreement.

A box lists your current Windows XP installation, and then the system

prompts you to select one of the following options:

To repair the selected Windows XP installation, press R.

To continue installing a fresh copy of Windows XP without repairing,
press ESC.

Press R to start the automatic repair process. After repairing Windows

you may need to reactivate Windows XP, if you changed some hardware.

Back up and save the Wpa.dbl file after successful activation and then

restore it after the repair process is finished and after you log on to
the computer.

Before you do the above go to Control Panel, double-click System, and then the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables. What have you got under system variables?

Check the following keys...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WOW\boot

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WOW\boot.description

Do you have mouse.drv installed there?
