    If you have access to the recovery console (either via boot menu or from the XP installation cd) you can run fixboot or fixmbr.

     :)No, I don't have that but i do have ubcd(ultimate boot).
    I'm not exactly sure what the problem is. So I don't want to take unnecessary actions. Of course recovery console shouldn't make it any worse, it's for windows after all, but I don't have it.

        Your XP disc or the Recovery Console?
