Hello,
Recently my computer was having issues so I started to uninstall a bunch of programs , when I
Restated my system it showed that a file was missing and would not boot,
So I decided to reinstall windows but everytime I try to boot from the cd, it goes as far as inspecting your computers hardware, then it goes black and there's no activity from the CPU or the cd drive

I've tried to install from 2 different win xp pro 32 bit disc, 1 xp home, and a vista 64 bit
The vista disc works sometimes the first install took so I formatted and expected the 32bit cap disc would now work but it was the same issue,
Also when I tried to reinstall vista it would t install, finally jn the 4th attempt it worked.

Never experienced a problem like this before so
Not quite sure how to go abouts fixing it, any help would be greatful

Hi

You have to install from two different operating systems! You corrupted the entire system files.

If your original operating system was manufacturer install, try to restore to factory settings.
