it wont shutdown it continues to restart the computer shop told me i needed to finish installing it
A LOT more details are needed here.
New computer, old computer, new install on old computer, first install on new computer. etc. etc. etc.
And don't be a bunghole and leave out the hardware specs.
Yeeeah...that's bullshit. Wipe the drive and start over.
It WILL require a single reboot during the installation, but it will do that itself. After that, when you click "Shut Down" in the Start menu, if it doesn't shut down and turn off then something's fucked up.
XP from 2002 computer is 2 months old.
how do i reinstall just put the cd in when i am in windows and just install and it will overwrite everthing?
amd athlon 64 processor
If its the original WinXP from 2002 (ie, no service packs) it might have an issue with your new hardware. Try finding or making a WinXP CD with Service Pack 2 already slipstreamed in and use that to install Windows.
So you were concerned that a Windows install was rebooting during the install?
If so, then you have nothing to worry about. Windows does reboot by itself during an install.
And what is 3 months old, the copy of Windos XP?
If so, then it has service pack 2 and you're good to go.
