Question about Computers & Internet
At first it ask that need to reformat my hard drive ,i did reformat already then download a new xp program.it will to up but it will continue to rebbot and select proper boot device
Make sure that there is no floppy disc in the floppy drive.
If there is no floppy, the next time you start or restart your computer, there is that blackish screen that says hit Delete (or F2 or F12) to enter Setup Menu. Do that when you see it come up.
Then you want to move around in the options until you find Boot Devices. I usually set mine up to CD-ROM, Floppy (if you have one), then Hard Drive.
If you still get this prompt, then set your first boot device to be your hard drive.

You will probably have to replace your CMOS battery (looks like a big watch battery) and check to make sure the HDD is fully plugged in. Also, I believe that if it tries to reboot again, you will want to hold down the F5 key while it is rebooting. Eventually, it should change to the system BIOS screen, and you can change the order of your boot device to one that works.
