windows xp home edition problem

  liz coward 18:02 09 Jul 2003

my son in law has recently purchased a second hand computer and is having problems booting up,
the computer is a HP PAVILLION and should have windows xp home edition installed but when he tries to boot up it comes up with a message "THE SYSTEM HAS NOT FULLY INSTALLED PLEASE RETRY" what can he do ?

XP may have been not fully installed, you need all your disks, thats the thing with second hand PC's.

You may have to re-load the operating system. It sounds like Windows has crashed.
