Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

First try to boot the system in safe mode by pressing F8 key. If it is okay and allows to login successfully take all of ur data. If this will not click then it is better to reinstall XP on ur laptop. Please just repair xp (never format) and try to get the data. Because, in repairing mode, nothing will be lost. all of ur data and SW intact inside the laptop.
Even this trick will not work, try to attach the HDD with another pc as slave and get ur data back again !

Thanks
