My computer was running slow.. I tried to reboot it, and the bios screen came up. I couldn't get out of it. I did not change any settings in it. I finally was able to put the WINDOWS CD in, and reinstalled Windows. It worked for a little while and now it takes forever to do anything it freezes up on me. Help!!!!! :thumbsup:

When you "reinstalled Windows" did you format and do a fresh install or what exactly did you do, and what did you use to do it?

Do you have a retail Windows XP installation cd or ?

I used the installation CD that came with my Gateway Computer. All I did was reinstall windows. I did not format anything.
