I cringe everytime I hear "format and resintall" as the solution to any windows problem. Most problems can be fixed without a total reinstall. And, since Win2k, you can do a repair install which will wipe only the system folder and reinstall hardware.

Search google and the newsgroups, and there is almost always a solution other than format and reinstall.
