Are you booting from an XP CD ?
What do you mean "Normal Screen" as presumably you don't have an operating system installed ?

Hi oldal 1
Yes from my original XP Cd, by normal screen I mean the PC starts up and stops on the screen that used to appear just before win xp started to load. I do not see the reinstall windows screen, I have not reinstalled win before and I may not be the best at describing the problem, but I hope you can help me

Im getting no indication the disk is in the drive

you have to start your computer with the CD already in the drive . Furthermore your bios has to have the CD drive as the first drive to boot from

Can anyone tell me why the win xp disc is not starting the reinstall process?????

Pamy just did.

You need your computer to be set to boot from the CDROM as the first device and for the XP disk to be in the drive.

Do you know what we mean by that or do you not know how to make the CD the first boot device?
