     As your computer restarts but before Windows launches, press F8.
2. if above doesn't work. login in safe mode and try to restore your system to some back date.

If your file system is corrupted, you probably must rebuild your system. If you try to run CHKDSK, you could easily do still more damage.

If you are satisfied that your data is intact (it says so above), try booting with a bootable DVD and running CHDSK. Please understand that CHKDSK could leave a corrupted disk worse that before so it would only be a last resort.

At this point, a system rebuild will be your most reliable option.

That laptop will support Windows 7 and XP is pretty much dead and gone. So do consider this to be a perfect time to move forward. Windows 7 Pro 64-bit is an excellent system.

>>> All the above step already done before i posting this question   <-- You are probably in for a rebuild (I have had this before - it is not new).

Also consider why the file system corrupted. In my case, it was a bad disk controller/disk.

I've repaired some heavily corrupted XP machines before where they've chkdsked themselves even more into oblivion.  By booting some other CD-based OS (eg DaRT or Knoppix), you get at the filesystem and you'll usually find chkdsk has created a found.000 folder.  Inside that will be a number of recovered subfolders.  By looking at their contents (and comparing with a working PC), you can usually identify each folder, rename it and put it back where it belongs.  Invariably it's Windows, System32, Inf, Config, Wbem and other rather critical things!!!
After that, I usually manually roll-back the registry by copying it out of one of the saved system restore points.  This is similar tot he method I use (http://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/show/214).  I actually just delete the current registry files and then copy in (and rename) ones from the penultimate registry snapshot I can find.

If I'm lucky the system then is usually almost OK.  If at this point it blue screens, then give up.
Sometimes WMI needs repairing (I check it by trying WMIC BIOS works in a command prompt and if not, using the following method to fix it  http://windowsxp.mvps.org/repairwmi.htm).  It's also usually a good idea to run SFC /scannow to check for any missing system files.  Then check the event logs for any remaining issues.

This doesn't always get you a fully working system back but it does it often enough for it to be worth a try - especially if a rebuild back to where the system was would take a long time.

plse post the minidmp for more info - you can find it in windows\minidumps and attach it here

you can copy it by booting from a live windows, or knoppix cd : (i prefer Knoppix)
