OK it looks like you did a second install of XP and not a replacement of the existing. Please do the following.



Go to Start then to Run
Type in compmgmt.msc and click Enter
On left side click on Disk Management
On right side you will see you hard drive.
Male sure the window is open all the way on the top right so I can see all the info it has.
Now I need you to take a screenshot and attach it to your next reply. Do the following to take a screenshot while the above is open and showing on your desktop.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
Make sure the window is open all the way so I can see everything on the top right window.


Attach it to your next reply

Paint should be part of the OS itself.
Go to Start and then to All Programs. Click on Accessories and you should see paint in there.

Did you save the file as a jpeg because anything other then that ti will be to big or a unsupported file type.

Naming it jpeg isn't the answer. You seem to be missing this part of the instructions.

Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
