Hi Chaps,
Well, just about give up on PC. Will just format and reinstall HDD. NOT sure though, which order I need to re install? eg. Drivers & Utils? Delete partition? ATI Radion cd?

Ta muchley,

Set Bios to boot from CD as first boot device.

Boot with the XP CD in the drive and enter setup

At the option - delete all partitions - create one for your Op system and format it.

Install windows

When windows up and running install the drivers for all your equipment - graphics - modem - card readers etc. order of driver install really doesn't matter I usually do motherboard first, graphics second.

stopped for about 10 mins for dinner.

OK then - after delete partiions, create one for op system & format it. Does it ask for how large a partition?
