Repairing XP - Windows Setup, Administration & Security

    Default Repairing XP

    Hi,
    A few days ago, I lost some files, and now I can't
    boot up my PC. My laptop came with XP pre-installed,
    which means I dont have an actual Windows XP CD needed to
    carry out the repair.

    A few people I spoke to said I should try and get hold of
    an XP CD to try and repair my version, or use the product
    recovery CD that came with my laptop, but this would mean
    that I lose all my data. Is this true?

    Also, if I do use an XP cd to repair the lost files, I
    heard that theres only a 50% chance of it working. Is
    this right?

    Any help/suggestions would be welcome.
    thanks
    - Jez
