You cannot have your cake and eat it too.
When you format the hard drive the process erases the whole partition. Besides, why would you reformat the drive? Usually it is remove viruses, errors, or to reinstall. If there are viruses, don't you think that by keeping the OS you are also saving the viruses.

Windows XP can cause blue screens on many occasions. Like ram failure, CMOS setting issues, OS problems or by any other Hard ware issues.
1. Make sure the bios settings are ok. It is always recommended if you can run your system with the default settings. To do this clear the CMOS by removing the battery and keep for around 1 minute. and put it back. (While this the power should be removed.) Now try and see if the problem is still go to step 2
2. Remove the RAM & Display cards and clean the contacts with a non dust eraser (dont use erasers with sand, old erasers as this might lead to worse problems.) Now try and see if the problem is still go to step 3.
3. Remove other cards and with out those cards check the problem is still there. Go to step 4 if the problem is still there. If its not there Clean the removed cards contacts with a eraser and fix the cards one by one and check.
4. Try installing OS.

If the problem is still it may be your hard disk, Motherboard or the processor. Better to check with a technician.

Hope this helps.

Depending on which level of risk of the Pup.datamngr virus has infiltrated your PC, you might find it is hard to get rid of this sophisticated worm. Some people have successfully cleaned out the stubborn worm, but since one of the primary functions of this virus is to disable security programs,so the method of using anti-virus program is not always a foolproof approach.
Please follow these steps to get rid of Pup.datamngr virus manually:
Step 1: Press CTRL+ALT+DEL or CTRL+SHIFT+ESC. Open the Windows Task Manager.
If that didn't work, try another way. Press the Start button and click on the Run option. This will start the Run tool. Type in taskmgr and press OK. This should start the Windows Task Manager
Step 2: Within the Windows Task Manager click on the Processes tab. Find the process by name. random.exe. Then scroll the list to find required process. Select it with your mouse or keyboard and click on the End Process button. This will kill the process.
Step 3: Delete malicious registry entries.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\random
Step 4: Remove malicious files of Pup.datamngr virus
HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Settings\{F34C9277-6577-4DFF-B2D7-7D58092F272F} (PUP.Datamngr)
C:\Program Files\Search Results Toolbar\Datamngr\SRTOOL~1\searchresultsDx.dll (PUP.Datamngr)

Care to elaborate a little more? If you mean multiple webpages popping up without you clicking on any then your comp is infected with a particullarly nasty virus, start comp in safe mode and run ESET online scanner, if that fails run Hitman Pro from surfright.nl it's free also but only for 30 days

The drive may not be formatted in a way that is readable in Windows or the drive and / or files may be damaged.

Microsoft XP... | Answered on Nov 13, 2013

suspected infected by virus, try reformat your harddisk first.

Microsoft XP... | Answered on Nov 13, 2013

the only way around that is to either borrow a cd from someone or simply get win 7 and upgrade.

so place the cd in the cd drive and boot up, it should load the cd and start installing, i recommend a complete re-install not an upgrade (takes much much longer) but you will loose all your information with a re-install, so ask it to format the drive your installing it onto before you start the install. (you can upgrade if ya want to save software/files).

i think the prob here is the boot.ini has become corrupt, this is why it's asking for your cd as it needs to install itself again.

Let me know if your trying this or having probs with this, ill have a think to see what other options i can up with.

in addtion have you got backup for the startup on a floppy??? if not when you re-install make one for future, this will stop all this messing about and should start the machine.

ps i dont think this is a virus, but it could be a harddrive fualt or bad sector, so after install, goto command.exe and typr CHKDSK c: /f
and then restart, this should fix any bad sectors on the HD.

All the best

This is the sign of either Faulty RAM or RAM with a Timing Issue. Quite often if more RAM has been added to a computer and it is not identical from the same Manufacturing Batch there can be Timing Issues that do not show a problem while the OS is working but prevent the installation of Windows Particularly.

The answer here is to either remove the added RAM till after you have reinstalled Windows or replace the faulty RAM if one has failed.
