Ubuntu I think you rejected my solution a bit too fast. anyways You can also try ubuntu from a live cd which doesn't require you to install anything. Yes you can cancel your setup at this point your vista should still work and you can do that.

Manually partitioning my HD seems to be the better option and since I have the Live CD I'll give it a try before installing it. 
Thanks for the info.

ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe Motherboard chipset gets installed after a new installation of Win XP then the mouse immediately dies and eventually the monitor will only show the bios screen or startup screen. No XP...

I would try to determine the source of the problem first. It could be the software (Bad chip set drivers, bad Windows installation disk, etc). It also could be the hardware (Bad motherboard, power supply, etc)

The easiest, in my opinion, way to test all your hardware at ones is booting your PC from a life CD Linux. It could be Ubuntu live CD or USB:
Some people like Knoppix :
In addition both of them have Memtest as one of the boot option. With the Memtest you can test your RAM and CPU as well. If it's ok you can boot to the GUI and check the rest of it.

I hope this will give some idea on the troubleshooting approch

Hi this might be a monitor resolution fault, or set incorrectly, is this xp home? or windows 7 home?, if it is a windows xp home, just right click on screen, then properties, then settings, you then can move the resolution bar up or down, i think in your case this will be down,you also can go to the advanced button, and change the Dpi once done save settings and see what happens,..if you have windows7 home, just right click on desktop, then change resolution in the menu, then drag the bar down and see how that works, and really then its a case of adjusting until you get the lines gone...hope this helps

Usually Ubuntu doesnt require any additional motherboard drivers if it has an open source version.

In Ubuntu 9.04, System> HARDWARE DRIVERS will show you all proprietary drivers in the system. You can ACTIVATE them there. Some files may be required to be downloaded from internet.

Computer- reformat

In order for the computer to work, and for you to reformat the harddrive, you will need a bootable disk, either one which has a drive utility on it in order to reformat and partition the harddrive or an operating installation disk which includes a drive utility (any windows installation disk has it) - without one you will neither be able to properly reformat the harddrive nor install an operating system on it in order to use the computer.

As you have stated, this is obvious, and your problem is that you do not have an installation disk. A restore disk would not help if you reformatted the harddrive.

You can either purchase a Windows operating system disk, find one (no, not anything illegal - I have spare copies of windows and all of my geek friends have spare copies, because frankly of issues like this),

or download a copy of Linux and burn it to a cd - Ubuntu is a decent choice for a starting Linux user, and is very easy to use (works alot like windows, has tutorials, etc) and is completely free - you can do a search for Ubuntu Linux on google and you will be able to download a copy which can be burnt to disk or request a disk be sent to you, though I cannot remember if they still send free Ubuntu disks out.

Linux typically runs very well on limited resource computers such as the one you are in possession of. Did I mention it was free? If nothing else, you can use it to reformat the harddrive using their Live Boot disk - it allows you to use the Ubuntu operating system without installing it. You boot from the cd and can use their harddrive utility, or install Linux to the harddrive, or just check it out to see how it works.

The sound driver should be on the motherboard CD aswell if it's onboard sound. Go to the Device Manager, and have it look on the CD for the driver (or alternatively, launch the installation for it directly from the CD itself). As far as the space is concerned, you can use the gParted Live CD to merge the partitions into a single partition, or the trial version of Partition Magic;

Turns off

If you have another computer you can download AVG, and make a bootable disk which could remove all infected files on your computer (The computer would boot off of the Anti-virus disk instead of windows, mount the hard drive, and scan it).

Another option is to reinstall windows all together (I don't recommend this unless nothing else works)

Depending on what you use your computer for (do you use any programs that only work in windows?), you could try installing linux, which is free, immune to viruses, and really fast. Ubuntu is a good option if you choose this route.

Let me know if this works for you!

It should, the best thing to try would be booting with a linux live CD such as offered by ubuntu, if it works properly you'd be ready to go.
