Format problems, please help
I have a problem...
Something is wrong with my PC and I'd like to format it, and reinstall XP. I've done this a million times before, boot off the cd, format the desired partition, and install XP on it.
Only this time, when I go to boot off the XP cd, it can't detect my hardware settings. You know how it says "detecting hardware settings" at first, and then goes into the blue screen where it installs temporary files? It says "detecting hardware settings" and then just goes blank.
I have a feeling that this is related to my initial computer problems, possibly a virus or something. My CTRL ALT DELETE isn't working and neither are any MSDOS prompts. How can I format in order to reinstall windows?? / ??
Thanks for your help.
