I am trying to install windows XP on my Emachines pc, it was using XP but after it got overloaded with bugs and rubbish etc I formatted the HD so I could re-install the OS, but for some reason it wont boot on the cd, I have tried everything I can think of, can anyone offer some help?

Have you set the "First Boot Device" as the CD?

yes I've done that, I have installed OS quite a few times but for some reason this pc is being difficult!
