XP gone very wrong and do not have setup disks. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I hope I'm in the right place.


    My windows XP installaltion has gone haywire and I have countless problems with my system including , not being bale to access mt cd/cd rom drives-they are not regonized by my windows-

    I can't use restore

    My system is very slow and I thing I have corrupted the registry

    and countless other problems


    I have run anti spam , malware and scandisk. I have also tried Mr Fixit and it tries to find the problem with my missing cd drives and then just gives up. I have tried that registry thing were i delete the upperlevel and lower level things, but neither of these are showing up in the registry.

    I was told to run the recovery consul, but as I don't have the original disks ( i bought this computer second hand, although it does have a product key number stuck to the side) and besides I can't use my cd cd-rom drive as its not there!!


    Can someone please advise me on what I can do, I need this comnputer for work and can't afford to but a new one.


    kind regards

    John Chambers
