There is one other problem. When I went into BIOS to try and get the computer set to boot from the CD drive, it says different Ports. But my brother figured out which one was the CD drive and put it first. Well, it would not boot from the drive, it just skipped it and went right back to the desktop when rebooting. So I had to reinstall from the disk by going into the CD itself instead of letting the computer boot from the CD drive. It still will not boot from the CD drive. I don't know what's wrong there. But if I can't get it to boot from that drive, is there anyway around it to boot from an MSDOS Boot Disk? Also, can I create an MS-DOS boot disk from my computer with Win7 OS for her computer with XP?
I have a memory problem.....and it's not in the computer (if you catch my drift). I have reformatted hard drives a very long time ago, but I can't even remember the first step now. I'm desperate to get her computer back up and running, because this is the only contact with the outside world for her. She will go back into deep depression without it. I would appreciate so very much if someone could guide me through this.
Thanks and God bless!
