If you made a repair disk prior to this, you can do a start up repair of Windows by using this now.
If you have an install disk from the same version of Windows, you can run a Install/Repair/Start up Repair from this also.
You use your recovery partition to do a start up repair (see your manual or online manual for details).
You can get a recovery disk set from Gateway (usually a small fee) and do the start up repair from there.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
