I reinstalled xp on a emachine T2824. After reinstalling, it goes to the , "lets set up your computer"........When I get to the "What's your computer's name" screen and press next, skip or back.....it freezes up and won't do anything. I have tried reinstalling several times....putting in a computer name, not putting a name in, etc..... I try pressing different keys......I have to pull the power cord to get it off of that screen because pressing the power button is not effective. Please help. Thanking you in advance!

Hello and Welcome to TSF

What kind of software media are you using, is it a Restore/Recovery cd or an oem windows xp cd?

Where there any harware changes made to the system?

This Restore cd is the one for the computer in question, using it on another system will cause issues if it will install at all

When you say you reinstalled, did you format the drive?
It sounds like a bad install to me, I would try formatting and installing again. Make sure the cd is clean and free of smudges/scratches
