Tried seting primary Boot to CD-ROM and all other boots disabled so it had nowhere else to go, perpetual restarts. It might be my disc but i dont think so, because if i put it in my computer it shows up as a working disc.
Every other restart XP runs CHKDISC so its definitly corrupt but i think his drive is also dying so im afraid if i format it it wont go back. Both mouse and keyboard are USB and i fidled with all the options in the BIOS to make USB work right and it doesnt work in window. When it goes to boot from disc it shows a blikning this : _ it sits in teh upper left corner and blinks until it moves on to the OS.
