The person that "tried" to help me was trying to test the hard drive to make sure that was not the problem and installed Windows 98 on it and now I cannot get the computer to even work at all. Which was actually the problem in the first place. Now I don't have a recovery disc for Windows XP Professional 2003, because I did not know I should make one, I am not compuer literate at things like that and only have the original Windows XP Professional disc.
Is there anyway that I can reformat her harddrive so that I can put the Windows XP Professional 2003 back on her computer or am I pretty much stuck with having to take it in to a shop? Her father, my ex, bought her the computer for Christmas last year and she has not had her computer now for over 3 months because I don't know what to do to fix it.
My computer is 7 years old and has Windows 98 second edition and my cd-rom does not even work, so I doubt it would be any help to her. It has cause her problems with her school work since she does not have one at home now and we have had to go to the library when it is open and we have access to it to get everything she needs completed when we can.
I would really appreciate any help you could give me on this matter.
Thank you very much for your time and efforts.
