    hi guitarrita,

    I need more information before I will be able to help you with your problem:



    1. What operating system was running on the computer when it crashed. If it wasn't Windows 98, do you not have the installation disc for that operating system?

    2. With regard to the last sentence of your post, "I've reformated hard drive to win98, hopping to conect to internet and download winxp with no luck. With which step did you not have any luck:


    • Installing Windows 98 on the computer? If not:

    • Connecting to the Internet? If not:

    • Downloading a copy of Windows XP?

You can't downoad XP.

On the back of your PC Case should be a sticker with the phone number for Systemax. Call them, answer their questions about the serial number etc. and be prepared to pay for a recovery CD/DVD for your unit. Ask for detailed instructions with the Recovery disc or call them back once you have it in hand. They are only an 800 number away.

If you can't find the phone number for your case unit build you can try this number: 800 262 6622

Just remove the jumper of your hard disk to set it it to slave as you will see on the instruction pasted on your disk. If your disk is formatted NTFS, win98 will not be able to read your files use a machine with winxp operating system.

Aol Opimized system


There should not be any problem loading XP on another Hard drive. Just please do not put AOL on it the next time. AOL causes more problems than a virus or spyware. You can then put the old hard drive in as a slave and try to get the data off of it. You could possibly run the XP install and do the second repair and it will take out everything that windows needs and then put it back in. This usually does not bother your saved files but it can. You can run a hard drive test on the drive with another machine if you have one. You can download the hard drive test from the hard drive maker. You can also pull the files off of the drive with another machine.
Rate me if this helps.
