Starting Up

I took delivery of my new computer yesterday.

It comes with XP Home but I wasn't sure if it was pre-installed or not. An icon flashed "19 days to actiivate" so I popped in the XP disc, tapped in my code and followed the wizard.

XP appeared to be installing, only it kept warning me about two bits of NVidia software that it wasn't very happy about. I ignored the warnings and then went back and obeyed them, either way I'm stuck in this endless cycle of power down, power up, installl, error message, power down, etc., etc.

Any ideas on how I can improve on my brilliant start?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
