windows xp freezes on startup. need to use system restore to restore to a previous state but it is turned off

windows xp freezes up on startup. will not get past the splash screen. I need to use system restore to restore to a previous state but it turned off and will not  turn on in safe mode.  I don't have a startup disc available.

Turning on System Restore now will not give you restore points to go back to for this problem.

System Restore, if you turn it on, will only be able to be used for future problem not your present problem.
