have you tried a repair install? I know you stated you don't have the disk, but if you can borrow a windows xp disk in order to run the install repair, I believe that will fix your problem.

You only have to use the same disk if you are installing/reinstalling, and actually, possibly just a new product key in that case. But for repairing etc. you can use any xp disk, i would make sure it matches your version (pro or home) etc.
