Windows XP - No username/password box
  

Recently had a power surge at my apartment and my computer was was shut down.. When I restarted, it went to the blue log in screen where it says "Windows. To begin, click your user name".. The problem is that there is no login or password box like there was before..

Tried starting the PC in safe mode but the same screen came up. Also tried to login by doing the CTRL-ALT-DLT twice but it's not accepting my username/password.

Anyone had this problem??? Please help!?!

Thanks in advance!
Matt

I guess, the windows file has got corrupt. & you can repair the same by putting the windows xp cd to get things going on again.

stupid question, but I'm a rookie.. How do I run the Microsoft XP disk if I can't log in?? I inserted the disk and nothing.. I rebooted and it goes to the login screen (with missing username/password box) but I don't know how to run the disk to repair without being able to log in..

confused..
