HELP...windows not working

Ok I have a brand new laptop with windows xp..
The other day I was on it and this message bar popped up and said something about restart now or restart later and it had a timer on it like if I didn't choose one it would restart on its own. I kept pressing restart later for a couple days and then last night I finally got tired of seeing it so I pressed restart now.. it turned off and tryed to restart but everytime it gets to the windows xp loading screen it blinks and goes to a blue command prompt and then blinks again and goes to a black screen and it says window could not start up properly or something has occured and it has 4 chooses of things I can do...safe mode, safe mode with networking, return to last working configuration or restart windows. I have tryed all of then and nothing works...I'm not a computer whiz by any means but I can't get it to work...any help would be greatly appreciated..

pull the battery, press the power button for 20-30 seconds, release the button, reinsert the battery and try it again

Hope you have your OS\Restore CDs.

If so, put in the CD and boot with it.

Follow the prompts for system restore.
(You will probably lose data...)

If it doesn't boot with the CD, you will need to go into the bios and set the CD as the boot device.

After you get it fixed, put SuDown on it and never worry about virii again.
