See if this works:

Start your computer.
Tap the F8 key before Windows starts, to bring up the Windows Advanced Options menu

Use the arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (The most recent settings that worked)
Press: Enter

If after several attempts you are unable to get into the XP Windows Advanced Options Menu, as the computer is booting, turn it off pressing the on/off button on for about 4 to 5 seconds.

Now, turn the computer on, once again.
Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot the last time, and show the Windows Advanced Options Menu.

From the Windows Advanced Options Menu, select the Last known good configuration. (Highlight and press enter to load)

See if the computer restarts and loads into Windows.

Let us know how it goes.

Is this netbook under warranty?
