You can first try,installing xp cd,boot to cd (adjust BIOS for this-boot
priority),
then at xp info screen press r for recovery,press enter key for password,then
type:CHKDSK C: /R When its thru type:EXIT Let xp start up.If that
fails,boot to
xp cd,select,install xp,repair this copy.With repair,all updates are lost
only,all
else stays the same.

You'll also need a new keyboard, one where the Shift and period keys
work.
