You can run a "repair" install of XP from the CD that will basically replace the operating system without losing your data.

To do this boot from the XP Pro CD, let windows setup start, then you will get to a screen when you are prompted to select an operating system to repair, usually there will only be the one on your C: drive ... you then hit the R key to run the repair install.

If possible it is always advisable to back up any important data to dvds or an external hard drive before attempting this.

I have problem about the installation of my windows Xp service pack 2 2002 some of the drivers is not working like the audio and the windows also asking the genuine windows can u help me to fix this...

What I could recon from your question is that your audio driver is not installed in your reformatted PC.

Please be informed that any Driver software depends upon the PC make, Motherboard type and Operating System. You need to know all the three information's to do get going.

Please find the Driver software's of your Audio and video inside the installation disk provided with the PC at the time of purchase. As you have not mentioned your PC make I am unable to give you the direct download link. However you can download the same by visiting the website of the company that manufactured the PC.

Even here you need to be careful to download the correct software for your PC. You need to be exact with the PC make and Model number and the OS that you are using.

To install just Double clock on the driver setup.exe file and go on clicking 'Next' until you get the 'Finish' option and restart the PC.

Have you tried using System Restore? Just set your computer back to before the problem started. You'll lose anything you downloaded or installed since then, but your files will be fine.
