Compaq Presario V6000: No DVD drive after XP Install

I have a Compaq Presario V6000 that came with Vista but I want to install Windows XP Professional that I have. The XP I have has no service packs and after the install the computer will not read the DVD/CD drive. I have tried several CD's but none of them will read.

    Exactly the same issue here. DVD/CD doesn't show up in device manager, or BIOS. Its as if it has been removed from the notebook.

Black screen v6000 laptop "HELP Please"


It appears the hard disk has been wiped/formatted and does not have an operating system installed.
You need to get a Windows Vista installation CD and if the Windows label on the bottom of the laptop is still attached then this label has the product installation code.
Boot up with the Windows Vista installation CD to install the Vista operating software then you need to install the Presario device drivers.

You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Windows drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Put XP disk in CD-ROM and reboot the computer.

Click yes to install XP. It will tell you there is a system already installed on C drive. You select to install XP on C drive. It will ask if you want to format C drive, you select full format.

XP will then install

Windows Xp installation in compaq laptop


Buy an XP cd if you are going to do it legally, reboot your laptop and boot off of the CD, The XP installation screen will then appear, you will have to choose which partition you want to install XP on, first you may need to delete the partition currently there, then create a new partition. use the default size because you need to leave at least 8 mb free space, then its just a matter of going through the installation steps with your serial code, location, and other details.
