That fix I gave you is very specific, you must use an original Windows install CD that matches your version of XP, in other words it must be XPHome, XPHome SP1 or XPHome SP2 just as it must be XPPro, XPProSP1 or XPPro SP2.
You can use a disk that is not yours but the reason it must match exactly is at some point you will be asked to type in the COA key(sticker on the side of your case) and if the CD and COA sticker don't match it will stop there and go no further.
If you have a friend with the same version on CD you can use their copy just to do the install.
I am guessing that your computer was bought in a store and is a known brand like Compaq, Gateway or Emachines.
If this is the case you will have what is known as a recovery partition on your harddrive, if you instigate the recovery procedure you will wipe your computer clean and it will revert to as it was when you bought it, BUT, you will lose all your personal files.
IF this is the case let me know because there are ways to recover your personal files before using the recovery procedure.
If this is too much information for you please let me know, leave a comment here, contact me by email or phone, let me know and I can give you contact details.
The problem you are having I deal with everyday, I am surrounded by Uni students who seem to be able to break their computers every other day.

Looks as if the disk is full and after logging on it requests me to format the disk and won't let me access in order to delete unwanted files.


Hi,
Could you please give more details
- Is it an external drive? / USB etc?
- what operating system is your computer?

Have you tried running the disk clean up wizard?

Acer brand laptop computers are designed to be small, portable units that are great for logging onto the Internet and checking email on the go.
As your Acer laptop ages, you may start to notice that it runs a little more sluggish than it used to. As Acer brand laptops run on the Windows operating system, luckily there are a few built-in tools that you can use to boost performance and generally speed up your machine without spending any additional money.

Use the "Disk Cleanup" tool. This tool is built into all Acer laptop computers and is accessible by clicking on "Start," then "Programs," then "Accessories," then "System Tools."
Disk Cleanup will remove any files left behind by programs on your Acer laptop computer that are no longer needed.
This can free up valuable hard drive space and generally give your Acer laptop computer a bit of a performance boost.
Use the "Disk Defragmenter" tool.
As with Disk Cleanup, this tool is built into all Acer laptop computers and is accessible through the same folder in the "Start" menu.
Disk Defragmenter physically rearranges the way bytes of data are stored on your hard drive, making it easier for your operating system to access pertinent information.
As it will take your computer less time to find the information you're requesting, your computer will speed up a great deal.

Get anything you can off of your hard drive. In order to keep the price down, Acer laptop computers tend to come with smaller hard drives than full sized laptops.
As a result, hard drive space can be very precious.
The more data is stored on a hard drive the longer it will take your operating system to sort through everything and find the files you're trying to access.
If you empty any files you don't need onto a flash drive or external hard drive, you can generally improve the speed of your Acer laptop computer a great deal.

also
Press windows button and in the search type msconfig go to startup tab and uncheck those you dont want to start.
