Default Help

I just tried installing the east asian language pack for XP so I could use Japanese regional settings, but something during the install must have failed and now I can't get past the windows login screen.

have you tried logging in safe mode as the admin and maybe do a rollback if you have that feature enabled?

Usualy its jamming F8 like mad when starting your PC, varies on the OS (windows 98, win Xp, vista etc)

Well F8 just brings up the boot device menu. I guess I'll have to spam them all to see which will do it.

hmmm well if you cna't login as Admin or a user even, looks like pretty much only options left are...

Windows Xp (or whatever cd) you have loading it and try using its "recovery/reinstall" the OS option (you don't lose any installed programs etc but need reupdate windows)

and least but not last, reinstall windows
