You need to start with the Restore CD in the Drive

OK when you say you have all the discs do you have a recovery disk or an xp disk?

I have 2 disks, 1 labeled Operating System Instalation CD, the other= Application & Support. THe first one contains Windows XP, the second ?

Start with Application & Support CD

Start with the Operating System Installation CD. You need to reinstall Windows before you install the drivers and applications from the Application & Support CD.
