After that, It opens all other websites well except the log in page of yahoo and very few website ike that of Lenovo Suppot and Download. At these pager it freezes without resposes to mouse and ketboard. Then I decided to repair install xp, It freezez at the window which display collecting information........ and that is the ferthest it goes.

o boot from CD: no way. Even that which I try is from the window environment.

Please what do I do?

To boot from your cd rom, you will have to change your settings in bois to boot from cdrom. You can enter your bios setting when you switch on your pc, You will have a screen displaying your bios posting or you pc manufacturer logo, on this screen there will be a message like " press del to enter setup' or 'press F2 to enter bios setting' look for this message and press the required key. WARNING messing up your bios settings could cause big problems. Once you are in the BIOS setup look for options like booting sequence or boot. You will have messages on the screen on how to navigate thro the setup and change values for different settings. go thro this carefully, Once you are on the booting screen select the option "First Booting Device" as cdrom them dont forget to save the setting before exiting the setup. WARNING BIOS SETTINGS AND SETUP SCREEN DIFFERS FROM BIOS MANUFACTURER TO MANUFACTURER. Check which bios your pc has and go through the manual before doing anything. the manual can be got from the bios manufacturer's web site.Otherwise call the service engineer to do the job.
