After posting some help requests here the past few days, I have decided to stop the insanity and just format my PC's and install XP altogether. Don't get me wrong, your help was invaluable, but my problems keep arising. I have 2 PC's with problems, so I am going to discuss each seperately.
PC1: I want to format the computer and re-install windows XP altogether. Problem is (and this is why I want to format the PC together with the random rebooting) that when windows starts, there is a error message that says "can't open event logger" and only the wallpaper opens up with no desktop icons or taskbar/startmenu. I can open programs via Taskmanager, but how do I get to where I can choose to "Format PC" or Format C drive so that I can re-install?
PC2: This one is in a worse state: I cant access windows XP whatsoever, only Recovery Console. When choosing "r" in recovery console, I can't get past the admin password, even if I leave it blank. (I used to get past it by leaving it blank, but after accidently typing a value in there that I can still remember, it wont accept either that or a blank space) . I know that by choosing the first option in the recovery console you can reinstall or repair windows, but will it work if I use a Windows XP Professional CD if I currently have Windows XP Home running on the PC? If the state of PC2 is a no-hoper, do you suggest taking it to IT specialists/technicians to repair?
Thanks, hope this is the last you here from me, but dudes, I need help!!!
