Hi, Pop the disk in the drive and set off your install. When the setup gets to the part where it asks you where you would like to install XP you will need to delete the C drive partition, format the partition and install XP. XP from a clean install only takes 3GB of hard drive space, so unless you are trying to install XP on a drive which is only 2GB then you have no chance until you get a bigger capacity hard drive.
The information will be there at the beginning of setup telling you how many partitions you have (if any) and how big the drive is.
Remember that you need to delete the partitions that holds the older operating system as all the information is still on the drive, deleting the partition will permanently delete the information.
There is no way you can delete a sound card. But I guess you are referring to the sound card driver shown in Device Manager. It's not a problem, just open Device Manager from Control Panel -> System -> Device and then click on a the icon Check for Device Changes to ask WinXP to locate the driver automatically. If it does not, just insert the Sound Card driver CD into the CD drive and start the installation manually.

Try going to the control panel>performance and maintenance>disk cleanup. After running cleanup run the defrag. You can also cleanup your internet browser by deleting cookies, temp internet files, & browsing history. See if this helps speed up the system. Hope this helps & please rate this solution fixya.

I assume you want to reformat it and then reinstall some sort of operating system. The esiest way to do this is to reformat it during the reinstallation of the operating system. If you are using Windows XP, it gives you the option of using FAT32 or NTFS file system to format the drive.
If you are using Windows 98 or ME, you can boot to the CD and use the fdisk/format commands found on the CD.
