Hello. I am new to this community and I have a Dell Dimension Desktop. Last week, I received the dreaded "BSOD" while attempting to start Windows XP (SP2). I'm by no means an expert ... After lots of rebooting, I wish to reformat and re-load Windows XP (I have the CD from the manufacturer). - I have gone into my BIOS and selected the boot from CD option only and inserted the CD. Here's the problem - I am unable to boot from the CD drive. I receive the message "No Bootable Devices-strike F1 To Reboot F2 For Setup." I can not boot from my secondary DVD/RW drive either. I purchased a new Hard Disk (foolishly, but returnable) in a meager attempt to maybe get lucky and fix the issue. It revealed the same message "No Bootable Devices ..." I used to be able to log into Safe Mode (with networking, command prompt, etc.) but no longer can... It seems the system gets stuck on System32\DRIVERS\agp440.sys Is there anything I can do to recover/reformat or should I just buy a new PC?
