So then i try to reinstall windows but it wont copy the files onto the hard drive I thought it was the cd but i tried another one and same thing it wouldnt copy so now im starting to think that it's the CD drve and i pull it out replace another it with another one and then nothing happens same thing it wont copy.......... well i put another hard drive in (20 gig about 4 years old) and it works so now i boot into windows (with the old hard drive) and then i try to format my hard drive but it wont let me it tells me something like windows could not complete formating so now ive tried every thing including changing a coulple settings. But now i have to buy a new one and keep running the 20 gig hard drive in the meantime while i order my new one.
