I have recently performed a wipe and my first clean installation of WinXP Pro- approximately 5 months ago- and everything ran very smoothly until a series of incidents that may have caused some problems with my data integrity- including some data apparently critical to some core system operations. About 50% of the time, when hot-connecting a plug-and-play device, the machine will create a page fault and crash; also, when burning CDs, it tends to crash when finalizing discs. I'm looking for an effective way to reinstall WinXP- I distinctly remember being able to simply reinstall 98 and 2K, thusly restoring damaged system files. I don't have the time nor the backup medium readily available, not being able to write CDs, to perform another wipe and reinstall. Ideas? Any help at all is appreciated.
