Try putting your windows installation cd in the drive then
then as the memory check runs thru your bios press F8
it should give you an option to boot from the cd rom
answer yes boot from cd rom
Then it will install a few programs and check your hard drive, eventually asking you if you want to install windows, or repair windows, you want to REPAIR windows, so choose that option.
Then you are back in like flynn.
Not a big problem.
However you might have to go through a screen where it says install windows before you get to the screen offering option to repair it. Just keep going until you get the repair screen.
Even if you never find the repair screen at least by reinstalling windows you get your machine back either way, but that is the long way around.
And also the dangerous way, because if you lose any of your drivers for whatever accessories you might have installed that are not plug and play, then you just boutght yourself one big headache unless yopu have them stored somewhere where you know where to find them.

reboot the system and go into the BIOS setup.check to see the order of the Boot Devices. normally it should be floppy, hard drive 1 , CD-ROM and the last one is disabled.
