    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.

    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 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.
