o.k., what I did, is I loaded my OS<XP,Pro> into this fresh drive, and set about to load all my "stuff". SOmewhere along the lines, I loaded in something, I beleive is was drivers for the samsung moniter, that the system didnt like, it stoped running, booted down, and refused to start agian. It just kept booting back into restart. SO< some clown , either hacked into my system, and gave me some sik virus, or, something else happened. EITHER way, I need to re format, and erase the drive. I have tried and tried with the boot disks that I have for xp to re install and re format the drive, it gets so far in re installing xp, about 36 % then stops frozen, will not go any further....5 tries later, I just want to erase the drive , any ideas of how to strip the drive and start over please.
