i have treid a repair install, but not a full. i dont think that would make much of a difference. considering i just installed anyway.
i know that both of the discs are good, i have used the 2k disc and the sp4 upgrade disc in the past and this is the first time i have had any trouble

a clean install most likley will fix it. it could be having conflicts with other files or firewalls ect. if i where you i would do the clean install.
