First of all go to your cmos setup screen (normally this is done by hitting the delete or f2 key) and setup your computer to boot from cd. Once this is done you should be able to reinstall windows xp.

Next go to the library, a friends house, or any other computer that will allow you to access the internet and go to
Now you can download the drivers to a flashdisk and install them on your computer.

Once you can access the internet from your computer download sp2 and sp3 from and your good to go.

Have fun.

Windows XP Professional, can't log in, try to type

Which model of laptop ?

Nearly every device in your computer system can be turned off and on by accessing the Windows Device Manager with a few clicks of the mouse. It gives you plenty of flexibility and allows you to customize your computer on a whim. The Device Manager will allow you to enable your factory keyboard and mouse and disable your current ones, effectively resetting them to the default settings

Make sure that your default mouse and keyboard are plugged into your computer. Click on the Windows "Start" button in the lower right corner of your desktop. Type "Device Manager" in the "Start Search" box. Click "Device Manager" under "Programs." Click "Continue" if the Windows permission window pops up. Click the "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the default mouse and click "Enable." Switch to your default mouse then right-click your other mouse and click "Disable." Click "Yes" in the warning popup window. Unplug the other mouse. Press the "+" next to "Keyboards." Right-click your default keyboard and click "Properties." Click the "Driver" tab then click "Enable." Click "OK." Right-click your other keyboard and select "Properties." Click the driver tab then click "Disable." Click "Yes" in the permission window then click "OK." Your computer is reset to the default keyboard and mouse.

I deleted my disc drive by accident now cant play or burn cds

Check device manager in control panel, see if the DVD drive is shown there. If not try this:
Close all open programs

Click on Start

Click Run

Type REGEDIT and press Enter

note: Vista doesn't come with the run command enabled so just type REGEDIT in the search bar above Start..

Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders to open them.






(looks like same file name for XP and Vista?)

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.


If you see any of the above keys, right-click on each of them and choose Delete

Close the Registry Editor

Reboot your computer

Click Start
