Well,
its not well understood what happened when you tried to reinstall Windows. Did it last up to successful finishing and then you got the same problem again or it is just not working to reformat any more?

To take out the battery with any misuse may cause any problem. Try to insert a new one.

When and at what step did that occur? Did you wait to see the next steps to come?

As I am a "beginner" I need some elaborate description to answer better. Don't mind.

When you pulled out the battery it reset your bios to default you are going to have to go into them and reset everything for it to see the cpu correctly etc.

Check your display settings and see if the refresh frequency of your monitor is too high @ the resolution u play WC3...

These are all good suggestions ....but the problem this guy/girl is having is that it crashed, he went to reload the computer and is having problems.

are you willing to format [ie willing to wipe everything of the hdd and then install a fresh copy of windows xp]
if so, gather a few tools, number one, your windows xp install disk.
now, turn on your computer, and then enter the bios. this can be done by pressing several buttons. for me it is the delete key, for some it is the f8, f12 key. if when you boot up it gives you and option to enter setup, press the indicated key and enter it.
now you must change the boot orderto boot from the cd first. this is so the computer will start to install xp from the cd.

now, if you have already tried all this and this is the point at which you get a bluescreen, i cant help. however, if it isnt [you havent done any of the aforementioned] continue reading]

it will ask you to press f6 once you enter the windows xp installation. dont do this unless you have a SATA harddrive. after this, just foolow the instructions, re-install xp, dont repair it. when it asks you about there already being an installtion in C:\WINDOWS, ignore it and tell it to install over it in the same directory. whn it asks you to format the drive, move to quickformat in NTFS. after this, follow the instructions and let it continue, dont press anything.
now just re-install everything you had on your computer.

ok...
thx for all ur replies but the main problem i am having now is my confused processor speed before anything went wrong it was 2.1 now after i got virus/pc crashed it became 1.3 .... i thought reformat could sort out this problem but it did not... my friend says it could be due to it overheating but i dont think it is becuase it would stop working all together right???=\ i want to know how i can sort it and will it actually run at 1.3 ghz now or run at what iy actually is (2.1ghz)

You will probably need to update your BIOS. I have had a few friends that experienced this problem with AMD motherboards. Go to your motherboards website and look for BIOS upgrades in the download section for your model. Follow the instructions to the letter or you will be have more problems.
