Can't boot up

May 16, 2009 at 17:33:52
Specs: Windows XP, AMD athlon XP3000+, 2.17 GHz, 1 g ram, AMD 2.17/1 g

Using Revo Unistall, I uninstalled all the HP software in order to install updated material for networking etc. Revo also removes the entries for HP in the registry. After re-booting I can not boot up. Only option is to hit Del to go into Setup, which only takes me to the bios and the screen material is pushed to the left about 2 inches and up too. Can change boot sequence to CD but it won't boot at all. Not even to the boot up floppys

If it's not getting any further than the first boot screen then it's more likely a hardware fault, unless you've accidentally wiped everything :-(

Anyway, when you're in the BIOS are your drives recognised correctly?

yes, they are being recognized correctly and yes, I guess the Revo took out too much causing my problem.

I cannot get the computer to boot off of the CD or a floppy with the correct bios setting for them. Guess I have to format the hard drive.

Next question, can i format the drive off my other computer, which has same mb as troubled one?

Thanks for response. Don't know how this got on this board but thanks for responding.
