  1. my computer wont boot into windows xp without the help of a bootdisk. I have "boot from cd" set as first priority and "boot from harddrive" as second in my BIOs. If i dont boot from a cd, Then nothing happens at all it doesnt even try to boot into windows. it just hangs there,there's no error message or anything. if someone could help i would really appreciate it.

    have you tried switching the boot order in bios? that is probably the most simplest option with what you're describing right now.

    -when you boot up your pc there is a button to press to enter setup, usualy DEL, F2 or something..
    -find a tab named "boot setup" or similar, and alter as neccesary
    -go back out and exit the BIOS, remember to save the changes.

    The Cd which you are trying is bootable XP CD.

    If yes then change the boot sequence from hard drive to CD ROM drive and then Harddrive.
