    Help me with my computer !

    This happened to me yesterday, out of the blue.

    Windows XP was running fine, when all of a sudden i got the BSOD. No panics yet...
    I pressed the restart button and it went into the reboot thing, only to show me new errors every time i tried to reboot !
    Windows just wont start up !
    Now, i started to panic a little...

    But i though, i can always re-install it...

    So i put in my windows XP cd, and tried to run the setup but even that wont budge !!
    I got an error everytime i ran the setup !!

    I dont know what to do now.. please help me !

    You get an error when you boot from the XP CD?
    Does it make it to the Setup screen? If yes,
    Does to the Recovery Console?

    Exactly what error are you getting and when?

    during that stage when the setup starts loading files, i get the error saying something like d:/......./boot was corrupt.
    Then it all stops
    If i restart the PC, and restart the boot process, the same thing happens all over again.

    And no, it does make it to the setup screen or the recovery console.... thats why im stuck !!!1

    First question:

    Have you gone into your BIOS settings and changed your boot order so your CD/DVD boots first?

    ofcourse... i've done that..
    Windows starts the setup procedure, and proceeds up to the step where it is loading files for installation, and then gets aborted all of a sudden...

    Do you have a floppy drive?

    Also. Please go back into your BIOS and switch the boot order to Boot to Utility Partition. Run the diagnostics and let me know if your hardware checks out OK.

    Is your external HDD bootable? What's currently on it?

    Try to boot from it.

    Do you have just one CD Drive? Or a second CD/DVD drive as well?
