    ok, well im pretty sure its a hardware issue...it boots up... SOMETIMES it just loops round and reboots...and other times it loads up the ubuntu operating systems on it but it has a password...ive tryed to install xp but it wont reconize the cd, ive tried new dvd drive and sata cables...im lost...help!!

    Have you set the bios to boot from CD

    You need a new HDD.

    Also have you played around with the HDD settings in BIOS recently?

    is this your computer?,
    it seems strange it has a secondary OS on it and you don't know the password?
    not sure i should be advising a potential burglar?

    If you've got Ubuntu on it you must be a geek and should be able to sort it yourself. Unless of course you've heard the big boys talk about Ubuntu and Linux and stuff and tried to pretend you're one of them.

    I'm near Oxford, get in a boat and row it to me

    switch PC on
    boot to the BIOS menu
    you usually have to keep pressing delete at start up
    go to boot priority
    make sure HDD is first
    if it doesnt work
    change it to CD-ROM
    boot xp disc

    Good point. Seems to be the way HUKD is going atm; we had another guy asking about removing anti-burglar grease a couple of days ago.
