Ok, lets start from scratch.

If you can, connect a different CD/DVD drive and change your Boot Priority to boot from here first.

Insert your XP disc, and using the CD's settings, delete all partitions and reformat the drive (NTFS). Start the installation and see what happens.

If you have already done this, or it doesn't work. Check how scratched the CD is. As long as it's not a manufacturer's revovery disc, you could ask someone if you could borrow their XP installation disc.

A good way to get rid of minor scratches on your CD's, is to spray them lightly with furniture polish (with beeswax). Leave for a minute, then using a very clean dust cloth, gently clean the cd from the middle to the outside. N.B. never clean the cd in a circle motion, i.e rubbing.

Hope this works for you.

get this from my shared drive(read instructions in there)

and wipe your disk clean (Warning...this process will make you lose all data on disk so be careful, if posible backup all critical data that you need)
once done install WinXP SP3(get a Windows XP cd from a friend or download a pirated copy from net) look for "WinXP SP3 piratebay" in google

when installing WinXP make more than 2 partitions (C, D, E)
Install WinXP in C
once done, let Windows boot and show Desktop
install WinVista or Win7 in D
use E for saving your critical data

Freezing or shutoff on boot, setup or minutes into operation


Try this:

Boot the system with your Windows XP installation disk. When the boot options window appears select R for recovery console. Once you have logged into the DOS session type: fixmbr and hit the enter or return key and select "y" for yes you want to do this. Type: fixboot and hit the return key again, hit "y" for yes.

Laptop freezes


"I never shut it off " Hope u r hibernating the laptop.. It seems that ur lap is junked with a lot of registery files and starup files.. so it takes a lot of memory to perform its operations and subsequently it hangs up.. and i hope u have installed norton anti viurs. this antivirus needs a lot of resources. better u install Mcafee. The best thing u can do is to install a fresh copy of windows. this will solve ur problem.. and remember keep the startup items to the min level.
