-ok my pc breaks down
-ask my brother where the cd is, he loaned it out
-ok...after a few days i decide to download the cd
-cd i downloaded wont boot
-i go thorugh about 6 cd's in the next 2 weeks trying to find a boot cd that will boot, read NTFS, and has CD rom drivers
-today i got my cd back HOORAY!
-find out that its too dirty to install\repair
-cleaned it with soap, didnt help
-cleaned it with toothpaste(me and my brother's trick) OMG IT WORKS!
-after the repair i try to boot, i get a BSOD
-im currently just doing a fresh install, ill get back to you if it works.

Sounds good. Why XP? Old news now, lol. Vista isnt bad, and a service pack is due soon I think.

the story get WEIDER, ok im installing, 7min. left, and it cant read from the disk, and its just sitting there, and im thinking. hey wait, i downloaded xp, why dont i just pop that disk in now, well i almost never label my cd's, popped the one in that i thought was it...it started going , ok finishes up, and i restart, all of a sudden it starts booting from the disk

it was a win98 boot disk!! im still baffled how it kept installing. this has really got me confuses. my head is hurting just thinking about it(no joke). im getting drivers right now, both XP\Vista Chipset\Video. and with my slow internet should be a while before i get them all.

That's true, I've done it several times with XP and Vista. I imagine having to read numbers to customers is one exciting job.

for them it might be boring, but its a very good opurnity for them. many people in India dont have jobs, and most others have dangerous factory jobs\labor. a lot of people would do a lot to answer phones all day, they could care less how boring\tedious it is. they get money, not much, but anything goes a LONG way over there.

You're the reason why software costs are so high.
