    Minibubba,

    I hate to bug you again about this.

    But do you have the url's for the memtest stuff and the fdisk thing.

    Like I said I have never had to use either of them.

    Thanks in advance buddy,
    Chez

    And yes, and I am pulling my hair out. I usually don't have a problem with this.

    I also looked into google for reformatting XP and it doesn't look like fun!!!:thumbs do

    you know how to burn an ISO image, right? If so, go to this page: http://www.memtest86.com/#download0 and download and unzip the .iso

    partitioning and formating a drive is pretty simple ...but lets do one thing at a time and test the memory first. To really test it, you should run it over-night so it will have the best possible chance to catch random errors.

    so if you're living in this timezone, burn the image, boot off the CD, and get some sleep ;)

    if your RAM turns out to be good, we can figure out your HDD then

    My ram is good.

    Any ideas on how to reinstall XP Pro?

    Do I have to download those 6 floppy disks?

    Or can I put the harddrive in another computer and format it that way.

    Thanks,
    Chez

    I formatted the harddrive using another computer. Just the regular right click then format.

    I then hooked it back up to my other computer. Booted off the cd-rom, and it goes through the motions of the stuff with the blue screen, then says Setup is starting Windows and gets stuck there.
    After that it should give you the 3 options. Whats up with that?

    Any help would be highly appreciated.

    check the connections to your CD-ROM (or whatever optical device you are using) and make sure your install disk isn't damaged.

    I checked the disk and it doesn't have any big scratches on it. It has some minor ones, just like any other ones. They were there though when I first installed it.

    It seems that the problem is with the harddrive not allowing it to install.

    If I needed to get a new CD would I have to send it to microsoft?

    I can always use another XP cd to see if it would install that way I guess.

    I tried using another XP cd and it gets stuck at the same spot where it says at the bottom of the screen " Setup is starting Windows"

    Any ideas?

    I know this all started with you fixing some jumpers ...but what about the jumpers on the HDD itself, are they right?
