I just installed windows my comp windows formated the driver but while installing it said it was lookin for driver.cab and i kept getting the same messege so I skipped it and clicked on when I got the warnings that windows might now work correctly, So now when I try and install any hard ware its keeps askin me for the xp cd which i do have, It had never done this and now I am thinkin its related to that driver.cab file I skipped. How can I fix this? :tazz: ;)

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you get a blue progress bar

Try here for Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation

i am having this exact problem. i have a question regarding the problem itself though, what would cause this to happen? im trying to install win xp on a 200 gig hard drive thats partitioned three ways. 50/50/100, and im trying to install on one of the 50's. could it be a conflict, caused by the 137gig barrier?

i havn't tried your suugestion yet, i've since formatted the drive uptenmillion times, so i need to reinstall.

thanks in advance
