Booting up problem

    Using XP Pro on my Sharp laptop, I've encountered a problem booting up. The
    message I'm getting on a black screen is:

    ''We apologise for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start
    successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.''

    It then gives me a list of options to start Windows - all being
    unsuccessful.

    How do I get the thing going? I haven't added any software or hardware prior
    to this problem.

    Use your XP CD to do a system repair. This will leave your programs
    and data intact.
