    I just finished re-formatting my laptop, and now trying to reformat my family's computer but i'm having a problem.

    I threw in the XP disc to start the re-formatting, to basically re-install XP and for the past 15 hours or so (since last night) it's been stuck on the blue screen and sais "Windows is re-formatting, 33 minutes remaining" I've turned the computer on/off, and it's always lead back to that screen.

    What can I do?

    When reformating are you using the XP disk that came with the computer (manufacture restore disks) or a store bought xp disk? Did you do a 'quick' format or a full format? What kind of computer is it?
