-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!
