The Windows XP CD ran successfully and I selected the option to format the hard drive. I believe that it then said it was checking the system and soon after a black screen with white lettering came up inviting me to select the set up, either Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP. I selected Windows XP Home Edition and then another black screen with white lettering came up saying "A disk read error occurred, press ctl alt del to restart." I restarted but the same message came up relating to the disk read error.
Any ideas please?
