:blink: :help: :whistling:
Help. My computer is all messed up. I'm trying to reformat my hard drive and install windows xp but I get no results. Tried to contact Microsoft but they say I have an OEM copy of windows and won't tell me what to do. I bought the disk on e-bay. Did I make a mistake in doing so? As it stands now there is no operating system on that computer and when I try to install it it won't complete the installation. Is there anybody out there that can help me?


Thank You in advance.

Please do not include an e-mail address in any post as it could lead to more contact than you intended
