I'm using Pro edition. My dvd-rom stopped reading my cd's telling me that they were not formatted for windows, meanwhile these discs worked fine on other windows machines. I worked on a few basic solutions none of them worked. I was following steps from something I google'd. I was trying to delete upper/lowerfilters for my drives and I think I wasn't paying close enough attention to the path and perhaps deleted the wrong upper/lowerfilters. I'm unable to login after windows loads, because my mouse/keyboard is not responding. I tried using other input devices from around the house and I still can't login. I can get in my bios menus. So I can't log in windows and if I could I don't know that I could reformat because my drives are telling my windows cd is not formatted for windows. Thanks in advance.

Oh and also, I am in the IRC channel if any of you want have real time dialogue.

XP Pro repair install
Go into the BIOS and make the CD player the first boot device. You will need to re -download all the Windows Updates if this is performed

I should note this will only work if you have the XP disk, not a recovery disk

It looks like my bios doesn't want to save any changes. Save to CMOS and exit setup? Y and.... it just hangs.

edit: Probably time for a new motherboard I guess... :thumbsup:

Try resetting the CMOS first. Either by removing the battery or the CMOS jumper
