the reason why is because ,hp computers use a different set of video drivers than does win/microsoft, when upgrading to xp you must install xp 1st release no svc pacs, then must have the hp video drivers oem for the model you are installing xp to , they can be downloaded on hp driver download, or the intel driver download site, unless you have a different chip set, the oem drivers must also be puton either a floppy disk or cd , that is made bootable from restart, make shure either the A drive or the C drive is set to boot before the hard drive so it will pick up the bootable disk you made with the downloaded drivers , then reboot the computer with the xp disk , at the disk partion screen select leave old files intact with the new install !

Hi there, if you have the recovery disc try that first. However, I had to deal with a similar problem on a FUJITSU LIFEBOOK, and after trying many possible solutions it turned out to be - hard disk failure, sorry. Hope this is not the case for you.

When you start your computer, tap F2 key to enter the BIOS setup. In the security menu is the area for removing/resetting BIOS password.

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause you problems computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly


a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working


check the CPU make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating


also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
