    Facing problem in installing the Windows XP again in my Dell Latitude

    Windows OS in my Dell Latitude got corrupted so I tried to install it again by cleaning it and when I inserted the CD and booted my laptop I got the error message as “Setup cannot access the CD containing the Windows Installation files”. Any idea why this is problem? I am sure the CD is not scratched or so it is a new one.

    Hi,

    The problem you are encountering is a severe one and should be handled in proper manner.

    Though you are suggesting a new CD and perfect media, i`ll still suggest you to use it in another computer to check media and files integrity.

    Also get into the CMOS setup by pressing f12, Esq, Del whatever applies to your system and check if optical drive is set to active or not.

    If failed try another copy of Windows , dont install as it`s not officially yours but test if installation can be done or not.

    Thank you.
