I have just installed a new hard drive on my computer, when I try to load windows I get the message invalid system disc - can some help me get round this/tell me what to do.

Thats because there is no o/s on the disk.

Insert your windows Cd and press ctrl+alt+delete

What does pressing ctlr alt del do? ,you may have to change the boot order in the bios to cd load the os and on first restart chnge the boot order back to hard drive.

pressing ctrl+alt+del will restart his computer so it can boot from the cd

ps asumming the boot order is correct

I also assume you mean win 98 because i dont think pressing ctrl alt del restarts win xp.

pressing ctrl+al+del will restart the computer if there is no o/s installed
