i forgot to mention this... i have tried to reinstall windows xp to see if it was just a one time problems but it still does the same thing over and over... could it be a hardware issue?
2 gb Corsair Ram
2 SAMSUNG 160gb HD SATA (not in RAID yet cuz it ddn't want to do it)
1 DVD and all that good stuff CD DRIVE
ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Mother board
Ok so i just built a computer from scratch all parts bought from NEWEGG... i bought OEM Windows XP, once i set up all my computer parts i began to partion the hard drive. Then i installed XP onto the hard drive but ran into a problem... it asked me to insert the disk for XP (already inside cd drive) so it can read D:\i368... i keep clicking ok ok ok but it just pops up again and does nothing... so i just canceled and it moved on... showed up again did the same thing but just canceled... then windows began to boot up and then i noticed something... i'm missing some stuff from the normal xp setup such as a calculator under accessories and msconfig command in command prompt.. then i began having some other problems installing other programs and drivers... right now its fine but i feel like its been stripped.... I dunno why i did this next part but i moved the i368 folder from the cd onto the harddrive (which prolly does nothing).. then everytime i boot up the little icon in the taskbar asks me to activate i click it and then it just disappears doing nothing... i'm quite baffled... CAN SOMEONE PLZ HELP ME RESTORE MY XP TO NORMAL!!!
