    Well.. I think my PC is fucked right now...
    I was just playing some Victoria 2 on my pc until the game froze my PC, like, I mean, I tried Alt+TAB, the Windows button, and even Alt+Ctrl+Delete. Nothing worked, so I could only do one thing, press the power button on my tower, so I did, it was successful, then I turn on my PC and I select Windows XP, it loads and loads and loads until I get a flash of a blue screen, it kept going in a loop, so I tried safe mode, I can't even boot into that! So I ask my Boyfriend Advice Fox to see what I can do, he sugguests using my Windows XP disc to fix the files, so I did, I go into a restore-like setup, and.it was good, but then the setup bullshited me by asking what drive to install XP on... so I didn't know what drive 5o install it on so I installed it on drive F: and then it rebooted, then I enter setup, I didn't want that so I took the disc out and then...

    It booted up to the set up and the installation time is frozen, so I give up.

    Moved to the computer section and title changed, maybe you can get some help now.

    Do you know where you originally installed Windows XP?

    Try to repair Windows again, you did it wrong. It sounds like you just installed Windows again, to a different drive.

    But, more than likely, Windows is dead. You should just wipe your drive and start again.
    And, perhaps read a guide on installing Windows.
    The installation process does require a restart. Don't stop half way.

    Wait, what the fuck?
    I wasn't EVEN asking for help!
    I was just simply posting a update about my self.

    I request this to be moved back to the blog section.

    So you want to complain instead of getting help to fix the problem?

    Crack kills.

    Yes.
    Because I know what I'm already doing, the word "help" wasn't even added in my OP,
    I was just updating on myself to my tempers out there.

    The "...anyone?" at the end looked like a cry for help to me.
    If it's not, it was a cry for attention.

    The first is acceptable, the second is embarrassing.

    I assumed it was the first, you're saying it's the second?

    He assumed it was a cry for help, which is acceptable, but it turned out to be a cry for attention, which is just embarrassing.
