tell what is happening with your computer. It's not booting? Is there a stop error? Perhaps the problem can be corrected thus preventing the need to reinstall.
Okay, I'm thinking about reinstalling Windows XP and I have a few questions.
when I boot up the XP cd I go to install it and it says choose partition.
The partition list is 153820 MB and 8 MB.
if all my files are on the first one, then why does it list it like this:
153820 MB (153819 MB Free)
All my files are on that one, shouldn't it show all the other megabytes that are being taken up?
When I reinstall XP will it delete all my files on my hard drive?
and if so, is there any way to back them up without booting up the OS, my computer is messed up and I'm almost positive there is no way to boot to the desktop or even the log in screen.
