I recently put Windows XP on my computer...by the way, i don't know alot about computers...everything was working fine for a while and then i started recieveing fatal error msgs...and sometimes the comp would just shut down on its own...so i thought i should try re-installing XP and maybe that would fix the problem...anyway halfway throught the installation it gave me some message about missing a component or something...and i should try cleaning the disc..so i looked at the disk and it was scratched pretty badly..anyways now its stuck in installation mode and i can't get out!! it just keeps shutting off and on again and giving me the same message...i just want to get out of installation mode even if i have to lose all my files i dont care!! help, what should i do???!
