NEED HELP! I have a older Dell, that was given to me with the Dell Windows XP
Reinstallion CD. I am getting the error: "Error Loading Operating System". I
dont know what happened, but all of a sudden - it went down and came back
with that error? I think I caught a virus, but I have a laptop with no floppy
drive, so can anyone help? I can hit "escape" when the Dell logo comes up,
but dont know what to set everything as.

Sorry :(  I suppose I am just confused. Appreciate any help!

You should have a blue and white CD that says something about OS repair
disk. With most Dell systems that come with this disk you can do a repair
installation. For instructions on how to do this see below:
