Before anyone says anything.. (dont take this the wrong way) .. i am not new to installing xp or any other OS, i have done it many times before...
Anyway.. i slip the xp disk in and it lets me "press any key to boot from cd", so.. i do that and it goes to "setup is checking your system config".
Then the screen goes blank??
I have tried it with a few xp CDs; my own, a friends, and one i "found" floating around the inet
The laptop used to run xp fine.. it even lets me install vista so its not that my specs are rubbish, unless somethings broke hardware wise.
Thanx in advance..
