Hi all. I have resolved my problem with the netbook. I managed to buy a external drive which is an LG brand. I plugged it in and connected it to the netbook with it's USB cable. The netbook asked me to hit any key to boot from the DVD drive. From there on I went through a formatting process which took over half an hour. The netbook rebooted its self then started to install XP and that took quite a while and I was asked questions reguards to configuration. I also had to install the Samsung drivers from the disk supplied. All in all the whole process took one and an half hours and the netbook runs much faster now. I won't be installing many apps as I think that might of bin one of the things which was slowing it down when starting up. Before I had MS Office Student 2007 amongst 3 screen readers along with lot of other applications and voices.
