The difference between a repair install and a fresh install is that a repair install fixes only the windows Operating System files, while a fresh install completely installs the OS. A repair install leaves your files and programs on the computer. A Fresh install wipes everything off the drive then installs a brand new OS system on the drive. What i have seen with some repair installs is that some software that added DLL's and other files to the system that are changed with the repair, making the software not work or crash. So then you need to reinstall the software anyway. It depends if you want to try saving the files off the hard drive.

The disk to use is a standard Microsoft Windows XP disk. The manufacturer's website should have all the drivers you will need for that particular computer model. Ask around your friends and you should be able to find someone who has a XP CD you can use.
