Getting some problems....This problem occurred one day when I tried to start my computer up. Everything runs normally until I reach the windows logo and beings to load. The screen never loads and instantly turns into blue screen of death for a second and then the computer restarts and it repeats its self over and over. I tried to run in safemode but was unable. It restarts before i can enter safe mode. I opened bios and directed the boot sequence to read from the disc. I enter my XP cd and being the process of reformatting. I get to the point where I accept the terms of service and then It tells me to insert the XP CD. I already have the cd in the rom so I open and close it to get it to read the disc. It then tells me "Setup could not read the CD you inserted or the cd is not a valid windows cd". I have looked online and a few forums say that i need a legit copy of windows on my pc or a different copy of windows cd for it to "upgrade".
I had a problem a few months ago in october with the Windows Police Pro rouge anti virus. In october I had reformatted my PC using this exact same disc to fix this problem. Everything worked great and then one day in November this blue screen of death problem started occurring. I havent gotten around to try fixing it until my school was over. How can I fix this. Might it be a problem with my CD rom? I have a spare should i try switching it out to get it to work?
