My PC, with the Windows XP Home Edition version 2002, CD Rom isn't working for whatever reason. I've attempted to fix it and am about fed up. Anyways, my question is am I able to somehow use my network and connect to my other Dell PC that has a working DVD Rom and use it to reformat or preferably repair my XP? and if so, how would I be able to accomplish that?

I hope I'm making sense... :)

I would just buy a new CD drive and install it. They are easy to install and fairly inexpensive.
It will be alot easier that way.

Thankyou that did cross my mind right after I submitted my post. I'm waiting until the PC in question gets a Clean Bill of Health. :)
