|In Detail basically this is what happened I turned on my moms computer to uninstall a program when the Add and Remove program screen was loading the computer screen went blank and the computer restarted. This is the first time I noticed the video corruption then it computer would load and stop at the XP progression bar screen. After a few seconds the screen would go blank and nothing else would happen. |
I checked to make sure that the computer was not actually boot by making sure the sound was up to hear the Windows Intro sound and still nothing. So I figured I needed to do a reinstall anyway so I attempted to.
This is not the original hard drive that came with the computer this hard drive was replaced by Dell a few years ago but this drive did not have the image partition on it so I can't use that. I do however have the Windows XP reinstallation disc that came with the computer.
I have looked on the Dell site and I have not found the SATA drivers only the Intel Application Accelerator RAID Edition (link below)
Which is the closest I could about installing SATA drivers using the floppy disk which I know you can use that by pressing F6 in the XP setup but was not sure if that was the same thing or not.
