After problems with freeses after installing broadband I reinstalled XP but the computer froze during the operation and now when I turn the computer on I get a "trap 6 - exception" and cannot get any further

go into the BIOS (to do this you normally have to start tapping the Delete key when the computer is restarting)

First make sure that the CD-ROM drive you are installinng XP from is set to first boot

Also ensure that nothing is plugged into any USB or parrellel ports

a trap 6 exception is the PC not finding your floppy drive.

check cables / in BIOS check floppy enabled
