Well yeah. when i put the disk in then restart the computer, its ment to say Press any key to enter, then reinstalling windows starts from there. when i load it up it just goes to a black screen, and nothing happens. but when i open my Cd rom drive it goes to the blue screen. and loads up normally.

Recently i have got my Cd rom drive fixed at a computer shop, maybe this is causing it.

You will need to have the CD-ROM entered as the first device in the boot order in order to be able to boot from the XP CD. On most computers you will require you to start pressing the Delete key continuously while the computer starts up, Dells requires you to press the F2 key to enter the BIOS.

Edit: Once in the BIOS you will not be able to use the mouse to navigate, you will have to use the keyboard to do this. There will be instructions in the BIOS on how to do this. Ex.: the Arrow keys will move you up or down the choices, When you wish to enter a area that the cursor is highlighting you click on the Enter key...

I see you have a HJT log posted. you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
