This one is a little more complicated (and stupid). When adding a new
device, I came up with a black screen. I panicked and restored to the 1st
and last restore point, with the result that SP 1 was what was on the system.
I've received a cd with SP 2 and tried to re-install but still have
problems. Please help!

With SP2,before the installation,go to run,type:cmd In cmd type:CHKDSK C: /F
Agree to restart,then type:EXIT Now install SP2.You can also,after SP2,boot
to xp cd(set for this in BIOS,boot hardware priority),recovery,press enter
key
for password,then type:CHKDSK C: /R This is more thurough disk chk,when
its thru type:EXIT Also after SP2,open cmd,type:Sfc /Scannow
