Please help me my win xp is F$## up!!
Ok get prepared for the whole story!
I bought a sony vaio pcv rs310 (my first personal comp)
and suspecting that the integrated 64mb intel video
card would not suffice my gaming habits
I shopped around and found a 128mb gforce
fx5200 only to realize that there was
no agp slot :~( So then I got a motherboard.. then that
would not fit into my sony case so then I bought a case.
Pretty much I built my first computer.
Hence i have no warranty, no customer support, and alas no system recovery.
Now my specs are as follows:
windows xp home edition
pentium4 2.4 ghz
intel motherboard 865perl
1gb ddr ram
80 gb disc drive split into two partitions
C and D with only windows on the C drive
128mb gforce fx 5200
soundblaster audigy ls 24-bit
OK now on with the questions>>
1.how can I reformat my hard drive without deleting my windows
You know just like the recovery. When I try and use my boot discs
it says that sony recovery will not recover this computer because
it is not a sony computer.
What happened is that some game I bought put spyware
on my computer and and so I went into msconfig and did the
diagnostic startup deal. when my comp restarted all the
windows were like windows 95 or something and now it won't let
me copy files to cds. I'm really confused cause this has never happened!
I really do appreciate any help that you guys can give me and please.
if you feel that you can not give a serious and helpful reply
please leave the posts to those that have had
more experience with windows xp and all the
baggage that comes along with it.
