Hmm, no, not if its formatted. There is another way though. You'd have to get a bootdisc from

www.bootdisc.com

Use that to format the drive completly, though you'll need a floppy drive to put it on to. You then reboot and it should load, and you can choose

c:\ *enter*

Format C:

Finally press 'Y' *Enter*

and it'll wipe, then try the XP CD again

Weird though... I hope this helps

That is usually a memory problem. Remove every thing except 1 stick of memory and the video card. If it fails again swap the memory.

Yeah thats kewl. This didn't occur to me though since it wasn't completly crashing and only failing on some, so thats why I didn't mention that, though you're right it could be the cause.

I wonder why so many memory problems are appearing now?...they cause the most weirdest of problems

Try a different video card. It is stalling on loading a driver for something.

I've just checked Google...

...and the webbase.enu or .enu files didn't come up with anything So I have no idea what that is, because we could have found out what is causing it.

"I just installed new memory about a week ago, great idea."

Yeah, in that case, one of them could be faulty! Good one Per

Good luck. I thought that was the problem. XP is VERY touchy about memory.
