windows xp load screen "stuck"

i turned my computer off last night as i was going to bed, and this morning i get up and turn my pc on and it gets to the windows xp black screen with the loading bar at the bottom and just sits there forever.... computer will boot to safe mode, but not to normal windows mode... i have not installed anything recently, or downloaded anything. i ran spybot about a week ago and it found 133 files that it said were spyware... i told the program to clean them and it seemed to be working fine... now im typing this from safe mode. i have tried the "msconfig" command at the run prompt and unchecked everything and tried to reboot to normal mode and it still sticks... computer is a 1.8 ghz dell with windows xp home edition. 512 meg of ram and a 160 gig hard drive... what can i do? i don't have the xp cd because i got this computer a little over a year ago from rent a center and its not under warrenty anymore.... please help
