question in the desktop forum. . .
Anyway, Windows what?
Why are you reinstalling Windows?
Laptop make and model?
Is this an install over the top or did you do a full format and convert to NTFS?
Did you save all the drivers for audio, video, NIC, etc?
this may not be the right forum but i have a gateway laptop. i was trying to reinstall the boot disc. and it is stuck on installing windows 39 minutes. control alt delete does nothing, turnining it off does nothing. when i turn it back on, it eventually goes back to installig windows 39 minutes.i have left it for a long time and it still says 39 minutes. any help would be greatly appreciated.
