One day while surfing the net, my internet got disconected. I checked the drivers/cables/plugs etc to discover everytrhing was plugged in properly. I put in my pci networking card to see if it would work but i had no luck. I decided it was time to reinstall windowsxp so i did that, installed all the drivers but still had the same problem. after unsuccessfully doing this 2 moire times, i decided to backup my files and reformat my hard drive. after the reformat I tried to install windows only to have no luck, because my disks werent reading. So I was lent a new windows disk, when I went to install, I formatted the drive, than watched the blue screen as windows copied its files to the drive. I waited as the computer did the reboot. instead of the computer booting into the windows gui install setup, the setup started again!!!! I checked my rem, it was installed fine, my hard drive was installed fine, my cpu was in good condition, everything else is connected properly. my mobo hasnt gone thru and torture recently. I just dont know what the problem is. Is it the mobo? is the ram broken? I really want to use my comp again.

When your computer gets done installing the files and reboots, it should give you the option "press any key to boot from CD" (or the letter of your cd drive) DO NOT PRESS ANYTHING. If you let it continue with out pressing a key it will act like it was booting up normally, it will start off where it was before the restart. If it doesnt give you this option, just let it boot without the CD in the drive, then put it in when its asked for.
