Yeah. I did all of that. My problem is that i cannot format it in vista. On advanced option, i clicked "format" , screen hangs for 7 seconds, then returns me back to the same screen. It should tell me how to format and format it for me when i click format right?

EDIT: There's also a weird funky plastic smell when you get new coms.

that is wierd. Is there a partition on there already. If there is use delete first to delete it then try formating. If not i would see if there is another way to format a drive outside of windows. Ill look it up and get back to you

There was no way to format it in Vista, so i was so desperate, i went to format it in the xp installation without booting it first. Then i started to get that screen. Even if i did try to format it in vista, nothing happens like my screenshots above. If the copy of vista i got free, i would have just installed xp right now. But i bought it and there is no way i could give it back. I HAVE to install vista.

EDIT: And when i tried to reinstall again, i get this error message "0x0000005". I have disabled my lan also.

alright well you cant install vista on an xp format it wont work vista formatts the drive differently. So you will have to format it through the vista setup. When you get to the part about where to install. Use delete to delete the partition that is already there. Then i believe there is something to create a partition. Try that and see if you can install on that partition. cuase if you formatted in xp thats why you cant install vista on the partition. cuase id ont think i used format the first time i installed vista

you can do that, i believe you put in the cd and then upgrade. After you do that you could also try a clean install.
