    Do you have a bootable installation CD from the HDD maker you can use?

    Just reinstall with a bootable cd. i had the same problem as you, a clean install fixed it all up.

    mod edit: pirate recommendation removed.

    Do NOT recommend pirated software!

    In essence, Windows XP - Black Edition is XP on DVD with plenty of other pirated software included... Software that covers every aspect of day to day computing and even some outside of it...
