help!my packard bell P4 winXP won't load windows properly so i decided to run my recovery disk. problem my cdrom drive, dvdrw drive, and floppy drive would say no disk/cd found. I've changed boot seq frm BIOS; BIOS recognised all my drives. I've tried removing battry from CMOS and stil couldn't found any disk from all drves

i've even bought another recovery disk from packard bell coz i thought it was the cd problem but it wasn't

If you have a full System disc, not a restore disc. Then you could run Repair, this does not lose your files but all Windows updates would have to be redownloaded after

actually it's a full system disk. i've used this before. there is an option of full/partial recovery..but my main concern is how come my cd drive couldn't find disk..i even bought a new cdrom drive..but still no found disk

You may have got a nasty on board, that as been changing settings in registry etc
