It could be a single component that isnt on XP64s HCL. Maybe try stripping out the machine to the bare minimum, and install the OS then. Once its installed, you can fit the components back. This sometimes gets around installation problems. Oh and feel free to pop over lol

A clean install is where you wipe your HDD and install the OS back on, a repair install is where you copy over your current OS so in theory leaving all your programs intact (doesnt always work tho). You can format the HDD from your XP CD, heres some instructions. If your gonna do a clean install, then backup anything on your pc that you need, as its all gone once you format the HDD.

First, can you do me a favor and watch the language a bit here. I can understand your angry that your comptuer isn't working, but all of that just isn't neccisrary. And please don't tripple post. There is an edit button to just add things that you forgot/want to add.

In BIOS, you can change the boot order. This is usually done in one of two places. Either "Advanced Chipset" or "Boot". Make sure the CD/DVD drive is above the Hard drive.

To boot off of a windows CD that already has windows installed, just keep pressing a key (like the space bar) durring POST. If this doesn't work, and you have a second CD/DVD player, put the CD in the other drive and repeat.
