    I've been trying to reinstall XP Pro on my nephews laptop and am having some problems.I used Active killdisk to wipe the drive and it kept freezing at 2% and now installing XP it froze at 2% on the full formating.Any idea whats wrong?

    First of all what might be needed is some system specs on the computer in question?

    Pleae include the make and model of the computer?

    I can't seem to be able to get into the BIOS.I had to use F12 to get it to boot from cd and their is no floppy.

    I talked to my nephew more and found out that a friend had reinstalled the OS before and it would not do the full format but would quick format.He reinstalled because he was getting windows file corruptions messages.I talked to my local computer repair shop and he said it was a bad hard drive.Does this sound right?I was thinking it looked like a hardware problem.
