I tried to re install windows xp.
The anwer came up that the version on the computer is newer than the one on the disc,the only reason i can think of is i put SP2 download in.Ithere ayway around this without Uninstalling SP2 It gives all sorts of dire warnings if i re install over the original.
can anyone please advise

It wont just be SP2.... It will also be ALL the Windows Updates you have installed.

What is the actual problem (why are you formatting)?

Is it a reinstall click here or a repair click here that you are trying to do.

Try running Repair instead of reinstall Press R when it asks what to do after starting with XP CD

Thank you all for your help.I have to do a clean re install as i have a few problems that cannot be fixed.
You have given me plenty to think about and plenty to try.I will start in a day or two as time is pressing.Again thanks for your time i will be back when i have done.
