Question about Computers & Internet
I tried 'repairing' my XP by reinstalling it from the re-installation DVD using some instructions I printed from this site. All goes well until about half way through when it freezes. It says it's still installing but it will stay on the "27 minutes left" mark for hours. I then only have 2 options: sit & wait or turn off the machine. I turned off the machine hoping to restart from the beginning. When it starts back up, it automatically restarts the installation process, going until it freezes again. Does anybody know why it's doing this? Does anyone know if the machine & previously saved data can be saved?
When you are running the repair, make sure that you do not have any device connected to the computer, which means that apart from the mouse and keyboard nothing else should be connected (Not even your internet).
Hope that helps.
If this does not work let me know.
All The Best
