Well I know you can format the hard drive without the XP cd, but the bad part is you won't be able to reinstall Windows. If you bought your computer new either from Dell, Gateway, or from a retail store, and it already had Windows installed on it, then it was supposed to come either with a Windows disk or a "recovery disk" and that would have Windows on it. If it did not then you can talk to the manufacturer of your computer and request a new one, without one you won't be able to reinstall windows :tazz:

I encountered this problem also and have tried everything listed in this thread. I finally was able to find a solution! I had no access to MSN, Hotmail or Microsoft sites when I used the wireless router for ALL computers in my house. Using our modem without the router these sites worked. I found that I was missing a plug in and needed to enable UPnP I enabled it and restarted my computer and Problem Fixed!!

Step 1 Right-click on My Computer and click Manage.



Step 2 Double-click on Services and Applications.



Step 3 Double-click on Services.



Step 4 In the right pane, locate the service named Universal Plug and Play Device Host. Right-click the service and select Properties.



Step 5 Make sure that the Startup type is set to Automatic.



Step 6 Click Start and then click on OK once the service has finished starting.



Step 7 Locate the service named SSDP Discovery Service, right-click the service, and select Properties.



Step 8 Repeat Steps 5 and 6 for the SSDP Discovery Service.


To enable UPNP:

Windows ME

Go to Start>Settings>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs, click on the Windows Setup Tab, double click on Communications, and check Universal Plug and Play.

Windows XP

Go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove programs, click on Add/Remove Windows Components, scroll down to Networking Services, and check Universal Plug and Play.

Microsoft only offers UPnP in Windows Me and XP.
