    Now it still won't run..Booting from the CD starts but then the blue screen says Windows has detected an error and will be shut down to avoid damage to your computer. After going over a few things last night it seems she has too many drives. A, B,C,D,E. So I guess what we formated is only part of the drive. Her computer must have had partitions which she was not aware of. Now I am thinking I need to run partition magic but I really don't know how especially when we can't get it running. Very hard to do over the phone. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    To get rid of partitions, use delpart (http://www.russelltexas.com/delpart.htm). Put it on a bootable floppy disk and use to delete any or all partitions from a drive. (Use with extreme caution!)
