hi i have no idea where to go to ask this question... even though this is a webmaster's forum. oh well. i just am totally confused and really worried.
my cd burner and my dvd rom drive both aren't working. i formatted my drive thinking it was a virus. now i can't install windows xp. like.. my burner is reading some files on the windows cd.. but keeps coming up with an error message that it can't find some files.

and then i just tested to see if it happened with my other computer's copy of windows xp. and it happened again. so wat can i do?!?!? :shock: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

please help me! my email is p_e_p_s_i@hotmail.com

Ok...first I thought your comp couldn't find hardware, but ur burner reads cd. Then it's either burner too old or CD with WinXP has too many scratches. But you have DVD also, try on it.
