    When I try to turn my PC on, it goes just fine until the windows xp loading screen, when after that it just reboots. I haven't been able to access my comp in over a week

    I read some XP guide, and I think that the problem may be that I ran out of space in the C: drive. I can't fix the problem...

    Has anyone else had this? I really need my comp back fast...

    try booting from the cd into the recovery console and seeing if you are low on space or what. you can also try booting into safe mode in case it is a driver problem

    Tried booting in Safe Mode? Hit F8 before it gets to the Windows Logo screen. Then, select Safe Mode. If it won't come up, then do the same thing, except select "Last Known Configuration That Worked".

    The safe mode didn't work. I now have two windows installed, and I'm now unifying the C: drive, in hope that that would work...

    On the first Windows load, I would try going to the recovery console like col_panic said.. by booting off the Windows CD and hitting R.. once you get to the prompt after selecting the Windows Installation, type chkdsk c: /p
    It's about a 50/50 shot that it will work...
