I've been having a ton of problems with my computer. I finally got a message the other day telling me to reinstall Windows. I do not have a recovery CD, and was advised by Microsoft and Compaq that my only option was to buy another copy of WindowsME. I bought it, tried to install it last night, and NOTHING HAPPENED. The same messed up version of WinME came back on.
The mouse doesn't work, and I only have 16 color bit. How do I completely uninstall Windows, and start over again with the new CD version I just bought? Did I ruin the new CD by trying to load it last night?
Please help, school starts in 2 weeks,and I can't afford to buy a new computer.
