    i am trying to reinstall windows (win2k/winxp pro) on my laptop
    but it started acting weird

    when i press power button, the lights blink for like 10 seconds and then it turns off

    finally it started after like i pressed power button like 8 times :ugh:

    i tried to install, but it keeps getting stuck, during format process, installation etc.........

    finally i got to install win2k on it, but after it starts (asks for name/organization) it gets stuck

    it's a dell computer, bios revision a08

    what's going on? it worked normal before :( :o
