Problem with Windows XP Installation

If in doubt about the settings in the BIOS Setup/F2 screens, leave them alone.
If there's nothing on the computer you want (and it now sounds like your XP is totally screwed up), the easiest solution is to just wipe the machine with your Dell XP CD, then use the other disk to reinstall all the drivers.

By the way, if your wondering how I'm writing this, I'm using my mom's laptop which is connected to my router. I also called Dell, but they refused to help me since my desktop is 4 years old and I have no warranty. I found this forum and hope for an answer

The alternative is using your Dell XP CD.
Here you go:
You don't need to make any disks, Service Pack 3 you can download later and Steps 4 and 22 (on the "Next Page" link at the bottom) don't apply. Steps 30 and 31 you can ignore, Step 32 won't apply from the Dell disk either.
Then you can use the Dell Drivers disk to reinstall the rest of the drivers which will let you go back online, while the applications disk will allow you to reinstall stuff like Sonic that may have come with the computer originally.
