Hi Guys. I so very much appreciate the info from you, however, I am overwhelmed by it. I don't know very much of the terminology. I have the Reinstall CD from when I purchased the computer.
Some of the screen shots are completly different. Hope I can get it. Thanks again.

Hi, this is my first post here. My usb drives stopped working and the drivers got exclamation marks so i decided to re-instal the drivers to no avail. Now am trying to repair xp but it keeps restarting whilst copying files. Not one particular file but at diferent levels. The original Is OS is stil working and the usbs are not working. What can i do to get through the restarting. My laptop is acer aspire 1670 with 512mb ram. Thanks.

This thread is simply meant as a guide, not as a place to ask questions. Your question is more likely to get answered if you start your own topic in the main Windows XP forum.

Formatting C Drive and Re-Installing Windows XP

I have Windows XP on my Compaq Presario Model: SR1720IL, which originally came pre-loaded with only DOS on it (And the Windows XP loaded on it is off the same XP CD through which I tried to reboot it for re-installation). Now, somehow certain Spyware came into the PC through Internet even though I had the Cyberdefender running on the PC. Now, due to the spyware the computer got a problem of restarting on running the spyware scan and on opening ebay etc.

So, I decided to reformat the C drive on which Windows XP was running and reinstall it from the CD. So, on rebooting from the CD I pressed ENTER at the "Welcome to Setup" screen and then pressed F8 to agree to the license. Next, there was an option to Repair my existing installation or Install a fresh copy. So, I pressed ENTER to Install a fresh XP. Now, I pressed D to delete the C Drive Partition on which Windows XP was installed then, pressed L to confirm the delete. Later, I pressed C on the un-partitioned space to create the new partition and it already showed the maximum space available so, I pressed ENTER. Then, I chose NTFS to Format the partition. After the format as I pressed enter to go ahead with the installation of Windows XP on C Drive just a few seconds later a Blue screen appeared showing: A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
Page_Fault_In_Nonpaged_Area with the Technical Information: STOP: 0x00000050 (0xE95D5618, 0x00000000, 0x8081882C, 0x00000002)

I wonder why it showed that Windows has been shut down because I had already formatted the C Drive containing the Windows XP and its reinstall was still in process.

Now, later I realized that my system was a FAT32. So, I again did the same procedure and converted it into FAT32 from NTFS but still the same screen appeared and I am unable to install the Windows XP any longer. The system's hardware is absolutely fine because I had started using it a fresh since 2 weeks back only, and it was doing wonderfully well before that spyware came in.

Please help me, what to do next as I have never seen or heard of such an error earlier. Also, I had stored my DATA from C Drive to E Drive how can I access that?

Make sure you dont choose the repair option the first time. The second time repair comes up, thats when you choose the option. It looks like you might need to format your hard drive. Choose quick format and then windows will reinstall. Good luck! Anthony

Thanks

I am going through the steps but it is not giving me the option to "repair". It is giving me 3 options; (To set up Windows XP on the selected item, press ENTER). (To create a partition in the unpartitioned space, press C). (To delete the selected partition, press D).

I have tried it twice and don't see the "repair" option. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks in advance.

If you don't see a repair option then Windows setup doesn't recognize your Windows installation. While this could be caused by a number of reasons (disk corruption, damaged master boot record, etc), a likely cause is registry corruption. Try this method from Microsoft to restore a registry backup:
