Dear Mr. Yaseen; To install windows XP SP2, you will need a disk that self installs the windows. You will be asked very few questions. Now, who said that the computer does not see your drice? In order that we can check that we will need a Rescue Floppy Disk. When you bought the computer you were given two (2) CD/DVD, one contains the OS and the other the drivers. If the drive C is corrupt beyond repair, you will need the Rescue Floppy Drive, which open the way to MSDOS, upon which Windows XP SP2 is based. Remove all CD/DVD from the computer and insert the Rescue Floppy Diskette. It should start immediately. It will ask you one question, if you want to have CD/DVD help and you say yes. The rest will happen automatically and a new drive named "A" will be established: There is no drive "B" in normal windows; drive C is usually the "windows XP SP2" drive; drive D can be the C
The first thing is to make sure that your CD/DVD drive has the windows disk in it. Also check drive C which is where the windows will be installed. It may require that it is hard formated. Hard formatted means "format x /u" [format-space-drive to be formatted-space-right slash-u]. This will place the drive for "windows xp sp2", all of it, to one pass of zeroes. So, once we have a clean drive C and the installation disc is inserted into the CD/DVD drive, you may proceed to install. You will need to find "install" or "setup" and start it on he "RUN" mode. Any questions or help get back to me. CONSTANTIN (arzconst)
you need to check all of your drivers, as
1 it sounds like your Graphics driver is not working well at all
2. you are not able to access your CD drives as your IDE driver is not compatible with VISTA and needs reloading
