Yes. Is it possible to clean it off completely and reinstall it? Because I have the CD and the product key, and as far as I'm concerned I can't do anything in the current state of the computer.

This is ********, I disconnected the HD during launch so that I'd be taken to the XP "setup" screen, and then replugged it in. I pressed "R" for system repair and then "1" to select the Windows Installation that I wanted to be repaired (the ONLY Windows Installation). Then it just froze. What gives?

I'm just hoping he didn't short the cmos jumper when he turn the computer on earlier.

This comment scares me. Does your system even do a POST. (Power On Self Test) Do you hear any beeps when you system just starts after being shut off? If not then you might have fried your mobo or CMOS.
