I don't mean to step in on Broni but I have looked at this several times and your description matches with repair installation.

Another possibility, hard drive problem.

Yes, the cd worked before when I did the reformatting a couples years ago...I tried doign the recover option but it keeps askign me what windows driver am I trying to install it's a black screen... I don't have windows on my comp anymore because it got swept out. Also, it was asking me the admin password and it says it's not correct. I don't know if maybe because the cd is a little bit scratched? or is it my comp that's not letting the cd copy the files onto the comp.
This strikes me a strange. You said a couple of years ago you formatted with the cdrom.
I'm wondering if a borrowed xp of the same kind would do it. Has the drive had any problems reading any other discs?

You have to go to your computer maker web site, and get drivers from there.
Check Device Manager for what's missing.

Just for the future reference....I never mind someone else helping
Dont mean to but in on broni
Said that, I must say, that Dells are pretty picky about drivers, so, if it's original Dell configuration, it's better to start with Dell's site.
If any problems, surely Everest is the best help.
