Thanks guys, but I am a bit concerned that if I reinstall Win XP that will cause me to loose everything, my programs would have to be reinstalled (registrations codes, password ect..). As of right now I am really busy with this project due Tuesday and I must have my dvd rom operational for that job. Unfortunately I upgraded(stupid move) Nvidia and now Dvd Rom isn't reading any DVDs. ANd I don't remember all the keys and codes ect....lisauk said:Yes I reinstalled win xp and used the win xp cd to format the hard drive.
Just boot from the win xp cd.
If you need more help please post back.
Eventually I would like to backup my entire system, Uninstall and Reinstall my operating system, and restore everything without loosing anything, or spending lots of time installing the million software I have bought over the years.
Please help. Thanks
