|My son built his own pc some years back, and it has nnever gone wrong. He has now left home and it's gone ape. It stopped reading programmes, wouldn't connect to the net, and similar. So I had a play around with it, no joy. Format it, reinstall windows, and start again. Done it on my pc a few times, no problem.|
Lost the original XP pro disc, but had done 3 copies (always putting stuff away and losing it).
Trouble is, all 3 discs flash up with missing .dll files...different ones. Discs are in good nick, no scratches or anything, so I'm stumped. Tried swapping the 2 hdd round, but no joy on either.Even connected them as slave on mine and formatted them, no joy.Can't even give you a system spec as I can't get the damn thing to work.
If I connect one of the hdd to my pc can I install xp on that and boot up my sons pc that way?
I have also no floppy drive to take that route. I have an old copy of ME somewhere. If that was in good nick, could I install that and upgrad, as it were, with my xp disc?
