Hi, I think you have answered your own question - yes, I would first try re-install over old installation, or if that does not work then un-install and re-install 'clean'.

Good luck.

thanks technotiger that seems to have worked,
I forgot to mention the other problem.
My speakers don't work any more and my cousion thinks its to do with the driver[its realtec ac97 audio]which is at fault so it looks like I am going to have to buy a sound card.
So do they fit via the pci slots in the back and without going realy expencive how much should I spend
and what make is the best I heard that creative are good.

Re your sound ... it might be that your Realtec AC97 (which is on-board sound) has been disabled in the BIOS, you could check and then enable it if needed. Or a better idea is a pci sound card (in which case the on-board sound should be disabled in the BIOS - can't remember if adding a pci sound card automatically disables AC97, but easy to check) and yes Creative are very good, can be bought for as little as £15, pretty basic at that price though.

To get into the BIOS press Del during start-up sequence, once at the BIOS main menu you can read the instructions for navigating through the BIOS - it is quite clear and easy. Navigate through to Peripherals where you will see AC97 mentioned and will be able to see if it is enabled or disabled, altering it if necessary, as explained in the BIOS main menu.
