I did do that and tried everything it said to try. So i tried to install a windows 2000 cd that i have. Everything went great until it tried to restart and said "invalid partition table". I don't know what that means but it can't be good...

odd. here's a link I found regarding invalid partition tables. there's a possibility that your hard drive has really gone and died on you. :tazz:

from what I see here, a fresh install of the os from the cd shouldn't produce such errors... since only one partition is bootable, thats how the cd makes it.

follow the link about hard drive troubleshooting. and if this doesn't help, google 'invalid partition table'
