My System Specs

Default

Well after much jiggling, constant restarting etc.. I 'somehow' managed to get it past that one section and it is now formatting through the xp disc(Woo hoo)... I honestly wish i could tell someone what i did to fix it so in case they run into the same thing it will start working..

I -Think- It may have had something to do with the ram slot.

I know ram slot 1 works, and ram slot 2 is broken. I tried taking the ram from ram slot 1 and putting it in two, which didnt even allow the computer to turn on, after removing it and putting it back into ram slot one.. It seems to be working now.

In any case, once xp is up and running i'll post again to confirm. In the meantime i just wanted to wish you guys a firm thanks for the suggestions!
