Having problems with your Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop ?

BIG BOOT PROBLEM!!!!

\015 I have an old Compaq Presario 5008, that was riddled with malware, viruses, and everything else.\302\240 I recently used a program called "boot and Nuke" to erase all data on the drive, which took forever, but when it finished, I rebooted like the instructions said to do.\302\240 Afterwards, I got the Compaq Screeen with a nlinking cursor, trying to reinstall Windows XP Pro SP2.\302\240 After 3-4 tries, I got very frustrated.\302\240 The next thing I realized, was that the power button didn't work, one of the lights on the CD Burner only ligth up Red, none of the hardware devices would run(which I tested on my New Computer-They Worked), and the screen would not display anything.\302\240 I am Really in a jam here any and all help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.\015

Answers :

You should have erased the system root directory,( the Windows XP installed drive). the boot sector still has the winxp boot information, but does not finds any file on the drive, were they are supposed to be.
