  1. Here's the problem:

    > No DVD/Installation Disk.
    > No DVD slot.

    Here's a picture of the message:

    I'm not sure if it's a virus or not. I was torrenting one night, and I decided to turn my laptop off because it was over heated, and I turn it back on and this is there.

    I really don't know.

    I've tried booting normally, last know config., safe mode, safe mode with command prompt, safe mode with networking, and it either freezes there and does nothing or flashing a blue screen and reboots.

    Acer eRecovery Management is not working, and I have D2D enabled in my boot options.

    I have Windows XP Home Edition: 64-Bit. Service Pack 3.

    Thanks.

    "I decided to turn my laptop off because it was over heated"...

    Did this Netbook overheat often. What is the model number of this Aspire One? ZG5, 7100?

    No, not often. Only if I leave it on for hours or have it plugged it into a charger. Its a KAV10, I think. But I left it on all night for the torrent.

    You have 2 XP repair or fresh install options:
    1. Get an external CD/DVD drive and a XP install CD or
    2. Get or make a bootable XP install flash drive

    How do I make a bootable flash drive?
    I actually recently brought two flash drives: both Memorex travel drives. 2GB.
