Okay...here it goes...
Mistake #1...I bought a used computer off of ebay for my daughter for Christmas
Anyway, this is a micron.pc it was running slow, but did everything it should do!! then it quit working. I got on this forum and did the FDisk thing. I even have a disk for Windows XP and went into the BIOS to change where the boot comes from. One posting asked if there was a floppy disk inserted when trying to load the CD-so I tried that too! Nothing seems to be working, it just keeps saying Operating System not found. The CD will run for about two seconds and then nothing but Operating System not found. I know the CD player is good, because we used it.
Please help me, I feel like the worst mom in the world!!!
