Default Someone Out There Must Know How To Help Me.

Yeah, I just started setting up an old comptuer and everything.

I'm on the windows XP set up part where it says "you have 39 minutes before setup completion" well when it gets to the end of 'installing devices' the whole 'name and organization' thing comes up where you select the time and name the Pc. Well, when I do all that and press okay, it like stops for a second and then reboots and then a message comes up saying 'set up is rebooting' and starts me back over at the beginning of the set up. Can someone please help me?

This might sound obvious, but did you take out the installation cd before it booted up after the restart?

1) No there wasn't an OS on it.

------------

2) Well like I said it just restarts itself back at the beginning.

-----------

3) Yes, but it tells me to re-insert it because it didn't finish the setup.
