Re: anyone encountered this before?
thanks hypno, you hit the nail on the head.
i can do nothing, apart from re-format the whole thing.
if i do that, i dont have a original copy of windows xp.
i do have original win 98, but i would rather not use that.
my dad is a pensioner, and can't afford to fork out for a new xp disc.
so what about using a linux o/s?
are they ok for a real novice like my dad?
