XP operating system not loading

I installed SP2 and am now the operating system is not loading. I have tried loading from the XP installation CD I received when I purchased the laptop, but it comes to the same message. What can I do?

I thought there might be problems with SP2, so before I completed the download, I had backed up all my files, and also checked for viruses using AVG, for spyware with Spybot, Ad-adware, and MS Antispyware.

Could there be a problem with the harddisk itself because I didn't run scandisk before installing SP2 so there might be malware, but I thought AVG would have picked that up.

Also, I naively chose not to have an Emergency Repair Disk because I was put off by the long time the laptop said it would to create one when I started making one.
