the laptop keeps getting stuck at the XP start up for XP home edition w? SP2.
I have tried a number of things, but no luck. Can I run the system restore
disk to fix the problem, or will this format the drive and I would lose
everything? is there a way I can grabe my files if i can not get the system
to start? is there any suggestions so i can get this going?

cmesh,
You have to give us more info.

"Re: lockup;"
When did this start? Did you add or delete anything to cause this
behaviour?

"I have tried a number of things"
Please tell us what you've tried.

"Can I run the system restore disk to fix the problem, or will this
format the drive and I would lose everything?"
It depends on what your computer manufacturer gave you to do a "Repair
Install." You wouldn't lose your data, but you would probably have to
do all the MS updates again.

Post back or follow the cumulative advise from others in this thread.
Best,
Treeman
