    I have to point out I know nothing about computers and really need step by step help as I am a student and cannot afford to take my laptop to a shop.

    I have a Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo Mobile V5155. After having it for a short while my laptop slowed right down and had many problems involving the internet. A friend of mine suggested reformatting it. So he lent me a windows xp media disk, as I could not find the original one that came with the computer, and I reformatted my computer. Worked well and the computer seemed to be fine, however my friend did not give me a disk with drivers and system utilities on it, so I was unable to do anything with my computer.

    I then found all the original disks, for my computer (which was made by fujitsu and all the disks are official). I decided to try and reformat it with the correct disk, operating systems, twinload cd/dvd. I inserted the disk pressed f12 and it all seemed ok until I got this message:

    Twinload Windows XP professional:
    -Your configuration is not supported
    -none of the required operating systems were found on the hard drive of your system
    -remove the dvd and click OK to shut dow the system.

    I have no idea what this means. I looked at other threads on this ofrum and I can see that people have had a similar problem, except people were trying to downgrade from Vista to XP, wereas I am trying to load the correct version of XP onto my computer so I can put the drivers and utilities onto it.

    Please help!!! If anyone has any idea what to do please let me know

    Thank you
    Emma
