Seems like the windows installed on your computer has become corrupt and would need to be installed again from the disc, you can either use a windows xp setup cd or the cds that came with your computer to restore it to the originals.

If you have a Xp setup cd, I have posted repair installation instructions here:

let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks,

I closed my business last month and my desk top dell dimension was networked with microsoft xp pro and i want to take the hard drive from that somputer and install it in my home computer which is a stand...


HI,
When you remove the harddrive from a computer and plug it into a different machine though of the same model.It would not boot, because the operating system product key is unique to the machine. If you want to use this particular hdd in your home system, make it a secondary harddrive or reload windows on the harddrive again. But doing so , you would remove everything from the harddrive.

Thanks for using Fixya
