    Code:
    while ( x <= 100 )
    {
    total += x;
    ++x; // Or x++, in this case it does not matter; but at times the difference can become huge
    }
    Please start using code tags!
    Besides the missing semi colon and the {} it worked. Was that your problem or are you not getting the results you expect?

    one possibility (besides the fact that Enahs pointed out and that your while has a capitalized W) is that you didn't initialize x, so it's a value over 100 already.

    Code:
    int x = 0;
    while(x <= 100)
