Hi i'm N00BI3 and as my name suggests i'm new (what a lovely foum btw
anyways, i have an old lame computer that i want to get up and running again, in the hopes of getting it a bit faster i added 128 mb of SD RAM, and figured it was good enough to run windows xp, how wrong i was, during the formating of the hard drive my computer froze up and now when i reboot it it fails to load an operating system... i figured thats not that bad so i shoved in my windows 98 recovery floppy and cd, "Your hard drive is not formatted to run windows 98 please press Y to format it"
and when i do this it fails to find c drive and skips the formatting
) and skips directily to "would u like to reset your computer to factory settings" screen and when i press continue it shows the blue screen with a loading bar saying "copying files" with the error count goin WAY OFF and it displays a new screen saying "there appears to be a problem with the copying process blah blah"
what can i do? (btw i'm using my GOOD computer to send this so if anything requires 3rd party software etc i do have access to it)
Lame computer specs:
3.2 GB Hard drive
160 MB SDRAM
266MHZ processor (lol)
