Hi, When I try to reformat my hard drive I have set the First Boot to CDROM, insert the CD, but I never get the message that says 'Press any key to boot from cd '. All that happens is it asks me to press the Del key or Esc key & then opens up Win XP Home as normal. I think I have got a virus or some spyware because I get advert after advert every time I use use search. Can anyone please help me out with this problem. Thanks Mac
Do you have a Floppy Drive on your system ?, if so go to this link click here and download the boot disk file for your system, create the 6 floppy disks,change your bios to boot from Floppy disk and the Windows CD in the CD Drive Put disk 1 in the drive and restart the computer. Follow the prompts,continue until you get to Terms and Conditions (press F8 to continue), then press ESC. You will have the choice to repair or wipe and reload.
I strongly suggest you back up all working files to a separate drive or CD /DVD before doing this. Terry
Hi, Thanks for all the replies, I have just got in & my son-in-law had got his friend to look at it earlier in the day & he found that the CD Drive was not working properly. I am not sure what he done but the PC & the CD are working properly. Thanks very much for the help Mac
