I was trying to rename my HD to C(using registry editor). And I did it. When I try to start it up it wont start up. I put in my password and press enter it just stays there and it wont go to my desktop. Help PLZ!!

try safe mode?
maybe if you try that it will do a disk check..it should be doing it anyways

but other then that..looks like you have to reinstall windows..fresh

ive never had that exact problem..but ive had to resart many times due to registry errors..those are the worst..

edit: do you have a spare hd??
