Okay, as my laptop has been sitting, unused, for 2 months, I began getting really frusterated looking at it collecting dust. So I did something stupid and desperate. I took a disk from my desktop for Windows ME and booted it up in my laptop. It ended up reformatting, but noe installing winME, of course, because it was a different system than it was meant for. =___=; So, due to frustration and utter stupidity, I now have an empty hard drive and nothing to show for it.

And so, I say, :D.

Will I need to buy the complete Windows XP because of the reformat? Or can I get a boot disk? Eh ... I still haven't found the software that came with my laptop. <_<

unfourtuantly i think that might have to be the way your going to have to go with :D

the software isnt that important due to the fact that windows xp has a lot of stuff build in and downloads for drivers are usually downloadable offline <_<

The software for your laptop may be stored in a hidden partition on your hard drive. What's the make and model?
