Greetings!
I'll give you a step to figure it out the cause of the problem
1. Dont put first the installer on your cd/dvd drive then open your computer, if your hear a beep sound, and some information about your computer means that your computer is good and ready to be installed. But if not there is something wrong with your computer.
2. Insert the installer now on the cd/dvd drive, then open your computer. If the blank screen appear it's your installer has a problem or the dvd/cd drive, if you have other dvd/cd drive try to exchange them, or if you have also other installer try it also.
Thanks

Hi,

I hope that you have the DVD Recovery Disks because your operating system is malfunctioning.

If you have the disks, you'll have to use an external CD/DVD Player.

In the alternative, you'll have to install XP/Vista/7. Please connect me if you need detailed instructions.

Tweak BIOS to install Windows XP


Shouldn't need any "tweaking". Not sure offhand on the c700, but manytimes the Compaq bios is limited (and I'm a Compaq user - servers, desktops & laptops). What is itexactly that you're trying to achieve? I replaced Vista on my F500 series first with XP and finally with Linux - no problems (other than initially finding drivers). Just make sure to download and build an XP driver disk beforehand and you won't have any problems.
