have you gone to bios to enable boot from external drive or not if you have not then you won't be able to boot so make sure that is ok first.

do you know how to get into bios, either click delete or Ctrl+Alt+delete then go to advance then select order of boot then use page up or down to change setting then save then exit . then put the window cd in and hope it will boot.

also if you have window xp you can press F8 after you have turned the power on that it will take you to safe mode from there click ok and then go for a restore (start/all program/accessories/systemtools/restore) try a few days earlier restore and hope you get back to window.

you may have problem with you graphic driver, if restore does not help then go back to safe mode again and try AGP safe mode. follow the instruction and again once window gets started then go for restore .

Restore is the only way out.
