Re: computer won't load windows xp home
When you say won't load WinXp it might mean you need to prepare the hard disk. Get a boot disk Dell.com/support has a disk you can download that can partition the hard disk for WinXP If you don't know how to use fdisk get someone to help you. If this helped please rate me, if you need more help just let me know. mysleuth

And what happens after the video format message? Does the computer boot? Does Windows XP run OK?
If so, look at your Startup folder to see if a link to a video file is there (and starting up automatically).
Once you find it, move that like to your desktop and / or delete it from the Startup folder.
If video is starting by an entry in the registry (in the Run section), then it's another story, and I wouldn't recommend that you touch or edit the registry if you don't have the experience.
Microsoft stopped supporting Windows XP back in April, no security updates, so you are at risk in terms of security. Consider upgrading to Windows 7, or buying a machine from a source other than a garage sale. Just suggesting.
Sir you have to reformat the hard drive and load the windows operating system windows xp,2000, vista or seven. then you need to load the application programs. You might be better off buying a working used computer. Also their are too many bad places to go to on the Internet.
Verify the setting via Manage accounts on your XP machine (the one the email client works on) in whatever email client you use on it and verify and edit if need be the setting in your Windows Live Mail on your Vista home Laptop.
