whilst it was fixing the problem it abended...now it keeps asking for the original XP installation disc.

as soon as I reboot, i think Windows its going to fail to load.... Maybe its a good time to take the plunge and ugrade to Vista...but at £200+ ouch

Oh well for restart and see if it still works!

Do you not have an XP disc? It'd just let you repair it... possibly.

As long as you have a genuine CD-Key you are allowed to download a copy from a torrent site.
Download it, repair the OS if possible.. if not a re-install will be needed.
