Hello,
My pc had windows xp installed, then I installed windows 7 which deleted the xp.
Then I realize that the windows 7 does not support my drivers.
So I reinstalled the xp to get ride of the windows 7.
After that, my windows doesn't boot any more.
When I turn it on, it gets to where it says ''Intel Pentium 4 inside'', then it stays there.
It will not allow me to get to safe mode, or the bios.
What can I do?
thanks

Killdisk is a Dos program, you burn it to a CD, change the BIOS to boot from the CD and them use Killdisk to erase the hard drive. Then you use the Windows CD to reinstall XP.
