Have you tried re-installing windows? Or using a differant OS?

horsesaft.com leads nowhere so I suspect you have caught something. Do you have a virus checker...if not use the free one online click here

Ok you need to goto start/programs/accessories and open a comand propmt, then type in sfc /scannow

You will need to have your xp cd ready, any corrupt windows files will be replaced.

When typing in the sfc comand note there is a space between the c and /

Should say command prompt....

ERROR 1311 occurs when the installer cannot read from the CD drive. Have you tried cleaning the drive using a proprietary cleaning disk?
