hi all am trying to sort out my pc. main problem is getting it to boot up it crashes at various points between the very first page(with the pc spec etc on it) to just before the windows splash screen. on the rare occasion it does get into windows it crashes as soon as i play music/try to access internet/transfer files etc
can't access bios to change boot sequence so i can do a format/reinstall of xp. any thoughts/suggestions gratefully received thanks

thanks,unfortunately my pc won't let me get to a stage where i can perform the format.are there any command prompts i can enter while windows is running that will allow me to change the boot sequence so i can boot from my cd-rom?

Try a set of boot disks click here

Restart with the first floppy in the drive and follow the prompts.
