Hi, i have soo many probs with this computer...that it is time for an overhaul. I want to reformat my computer. I have some problems. I have multiple partitions/OS's on the computer. Because of this..i have to choose from the black screen which to use. Well...they are all XP....my comp is very messed up. It says i have 3 Windows XP...but only the 1st choise works. I am assuming that this is because of probs i had before with the comp...so i reformatted...but did i. I must not have deleted the older partitions. I need to reformat my whole computer. I insert the recovery CD into the drive, restart it...but it doesnt read it. I am having trouble accesing the System BIOS to boot from CD. I have no idea what there is i can do...
*My computer Manufacturer is Alienware. Its not a new model...but an older Area-51 model. I dont have warrenty on this computer anymore,and i dont have the money to pay for tech help. Please try to help me.
