Re: Accidently wiped XP from hard drive - please help
After nearlly chucking the laptop in a micorwave and asking if it had any last requests it said:
'dont, please just try again with install disc'
So I quickly pulled out an old XP install disc and slipped it into the laptop. The laptop put a little smile on its face and happily installed XP. My friendship with the laptop has now been revitlaised. Oil has been chucked on the flames - as opposed to chucking water on the flames.
After several attempts the o/s was installed. I am now wondering if there is a hard drive issue and was wondering what checks i could carry out? Anyone have any ideas?
ANyhow, the laptop seems to now be refusing the install of SP2. Some kind off file corruption. Have tried this several times but to no such luck. The SP2 issue is quiete annoying because I think that needs to be installed in order to sort out drivers.
That is another story too. The drivers which I have downloaded from the manufacturers webiste for my make and model seem to be playing havoc with computer. maybe this is down to the SP2 issue so I think I need to address this matter first. Any suggestions?
