Great,I am glad you are watshing.
I thought I had been forgotten.
At this point I have booted the computer with hirens boot cd,I have formated the
hard disc,I got windows to install once using the boot disc.
While I was updating drivers windows locked up,even tho the drivers was from
the gateway site I guess I got a corrupt one,I don't know,I could not boot back into windows.
I finaly formated the disc again,I can use the boot disc to start windows,after it loads files and should reboot it just goes off and does not reboot the computer.
The CD drive at this point will read the boot disc,but not the windows disc.
Windows disc can only be read using the boot disc.
I think that I have some corrupt,or missing files,but don't have a clue how to tell for sure,or how to install them.
It is strange to me that the only disc that will boot is the hirens disc,but then I don,t know that much about computers.
I don't think the dvd drives are the issue,I use them both when booting with Hirens,
the Hirens in one drive and Windows in the other.
When I am booted with Hirens,I can see & open Windows disc.
Thanks for your help,
