Re: I need a system to see the network

You may need to check all the pc are on the same network eg mshome or workgroup, and then you need to find the network card make to download the driver, as windows wont have it on, then use the network wizard to set up networking.

I got problem with formating pc xp ..after a push F8 to agree licens ..format stop runin and show me that " searchin for previous microsoft windows " i need to solve this problem what i need...

Your HDD is maybe damaged and you won't be abble to install a new os on it .
Otherwise , if you really can't format it , try extracting it from your desktop and connecting it to a healthy computer .
Reinstall it back in your desktop afterwards and launch the W XP install disc .
