You need to find which F key gets you into the BIOS. It could be F2 or F10 or F12 or the Delete key. If these don't work then try them ALL (one after the other as fast as you can). Then you need to change the boot order to 1st boot from the CD drive.
If your really stuck you can do a "Windows repair/install". It will reinstall all Windows files and leave your applications alone. Go to this site for instructions http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

Good Luck

The closest I can get to changing the boot path is by pressing f8, it takes
made to a little blue box that says "Select Boot Device", then it tells me
to use up and down to select, and the problem I think im having on top of
that is that I dont think the cd-rom is working, because the only choice it
> gives me is "Notebook Hard Drive".

If you never set a password don't enter one - try to just hit enter
Yeah I tried that already and it still doesnt work. What happened was that I was deleting some virus a trojan files off of my computer, and mistakingly I deleted like 3-4 system files, and now when I start up the computer, it loads but when it gets to the windows logo screen, the one that has a light blue background, and a blue stripe on the bottom and top, it looks like its loading for a couple of second because the little hour glass shows up. After that the hour glass leaves and them im just stuck on that screen. I even tried rebooting from 4 different windows xp cds and it doesnt want to boot from them. I really dont know what else to do.
