    When you say it shows a black screen, do you mean it never shows anything? If so then its either not getting to the POST screen (where it shows your processor and ram and video card) or the screen is knackered. Reinstalling windows won't help

    You can use Direct Cable Connection or Laplink cable.

    It's a cable that goes between the two Parallel and/or serial ports of both computers in order to link them together.

    It's been a very long time since I did this so I don't remember the details. I can remember that you can transfer the 'cab' files from the Windows CD over to the harddisk of the laptop and launch the install from there.
