do you mean there's no response from the PC at all? What you'd need to do is make sure your BIOS is set to look at the CD ROM device for bootable media first. As such, if your copy of XP Home is legitimate and in good condition, it should boot from that and you should see the progress on your screen. Now, if this was a custom built machine, you're also going to need to have all the drivers handy including ones for the motherboard. Do you have these? Tell what you do see and hear as you're trying to boot from the CD so that can be resolved first.
I know I have a virus, I can't get it off, so I'm wiping my PC out. I already have everything backed up and I'm ready to go. Only problem now is I can't seem to get the process started.lol
I stick the windows xp home edition disc in and nothing happens... Then I leave the disc in and restart my PC and still nothing happens. What in the world am I doing wrong? I've tried running the program, and f keying it and I've read the manual already and still no clue. This was such a simple process with me old PC. All i had to so is start the PC with the disc in and it started.
PC is 4 months old, custom built with XP Home edition running.
Thank you so much in advance for helping me out.
