Systems don't crash after they've been turned off. And please define "crash". You may have taken a simply fixable problem & turned it into a nightmare.

"recovery with backup disc was incomplete.. incompatible for: previously installed antiviral program, hp printers...can't reinstall. "
Can you explain this? was the install from a CD completed and you had problems with
"antiviral program, hp printers...can't reinstall." Or was the install of xp from the cd incomplete and, you were never able to boot to the desktop??
