Ok, so I found the original dick and start to reformat the computer, I deleted the partition and created a new to install window on the process went fine that as soon as the Windows began loading and installing it received a FATAL ERROR, this is what it said:

Fatal Error
An Error has been encountered that prevents setup from continuing.

One of the components that windows needs to continue setup could not be installed.

Data Error (Cyclic redundancy check).

If you are installing from a CD there might be a problem with the disc; try cleaning the disc or using another disc.

If you are installing from the network; it is possible that not all of the files were copied correctly to your disk drive. Run the disk checking utility on you installation drive from the recovery console and start setup again.

Press ok to view setup log file

After pressing ok it read:

Error: Installation Failed: D:\l386\asms.
Error Message: Data Error (cyclic redundancy check).

and then it repeated everything from above.

The disc is New and had no scratches on it and after pressing ok it would then try and reboot and then the same thing would happen over and over.

Is this still the virus or is something I am doing wrong?
Thank you for your help

Hi :thumbsup:

Data reclyclic errors are indications that, for whatever reason...the optical drive cannot read files on the disk used.

http://www.softwarepatch.com/tips/cyclic-redundancy.html

If it's a new disk with no scratches/smudges, etc....I would have to conclude that the optical drive is the questionable part of the equation.

CRC check failure means, as hamlouis already said, that data cannot be read off disk. What is being read doesnt pass CRC check aka it is corrupt.

You may try cleaning XP cd with a lint-free cloth and a solution of alcohol.
You can try cleaning the lens of the optical drive.
You can try changing the optical drive.

Is this something you guys can help me with or would it be easier if I just called Dell support and paid the $50?
Thanks,
Keyz

Are you following the installation instructions?

Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

Uninstall the Audio Device from the Device Manager and reboot the computer

Once when rebooted it would either ask you to install the drivers or would search for a driver and install itself

Doubtful, I had to reorder the OS disk from Dell to reformat and can't find any of the original disks that came with the computer. Is it another disk I will have to order and can I download the Service Pack?

I have tried uninstalling, rebooting, downloading to desktop, hardware wizard, etc. they all generate the same error.
