Why are you trying to run OTL?
We don't use them here.

None of this makes sense.
Are you using a xp cd or is there any cd in the drive when you are booting up?
It should not be asking to do setup again if there is no OS disk in the cdrom.

even if i don't have the Xp cd it will take me into the reinstall screen. It stop half way during the repairing, as i mention it ask me to look for a file and then the keyboard and the mouse stop working.

Well lets start this from the beginning then. Below i am including instructions for a repair and fresh install. Is any of this what you see or can you tell me when it exactly stops with the exact message.

· Insert your Windows XP CD in your CD-ROM and then Restart your computer.
· At the first post screen start tapping the Del key to enter System Bios
· Find the Advance Options or Boot Sequence screen.

· Press F10 to Save and Exit and then press Enter to accept.
· The system will now reboot
· When the "Press any key to boot from CD" message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.
· When you see the following message displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER
· To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.
· At this point an option to press R to enter the Recovery Console is displayed. DO NOT SELECT THIS OPTION.
