    i want to install windows XP on my machine but i could not able to



  • shrikantdudh May 11, 2010

    To enter the cmos settings on CQ60 104 tu you need to press F10 (to be precise). Having a XP cd and inserting CD in the drive is more than obvious to proceed installation of XP (you need not mentions these things).

    I have a different problem. I am able to partition and go ahead with first part of installation of XP. However after first reboot (during installation phase), it shows BSOD and stops. Have you installed XP on compaq CQ60 104 TU?

For that you will have to have the installation cd of windows xp
insert it in the cd- drive  and then meke the laptop boot from the cd  (either you will have a boot menu by pessing 'f12'  or del   or enter the bios settings and then change it )
after that follow the steps given on the page  please do read the instruction  before pressing any key 
you will have to format a drive of your system so   caryy forward only  after taking  the backup

hope this  helps
if you have any other questions pls  post back

I have Compaq Presario and got Virus "ThinkPoint". I want to re-install win xp but in Bios the only two option is there one Boot from Floppy and other ATAPI CD ROM . But unfortunately I have no...


Find someone with that copy of iwndows and copy the cd are use it to boot the system and fix the re-installation.... if bye chance the virus is still there, a fresh installation will get rid of it, jus be sure to get the drivers first though... (you can use drivermax for that!)

Go to BIOS to check the reliability of hdd or if you have a software tool such as "Avanquest System Suite" use it to boot machine from scratch. It will tell u what is really wrong.

I have notebook Compaq 6715b with Windows XP (no SP2). Sound doesnt work. drivers from HP official site not working


Hello,

trust me, the fault is from the win xp SP2. I am saying this with confidence and out of experience. Except if the audio drivers you downloaded is for win vista.

While running the Win xp, some files make have skipped/not installed which is making the sound not to work. Or maybe you have initially installed a wrong audio driver.

To solve this problem. you have to re-run the win xp, if possible, use another xp Cd, maybe not Sp2.

After installation, let the audio driver be the fist thing you install.

Take care.

After win xp sp2 installation my c700 notebook pc keyboard malfunctioning


Your keyboard uses a driver(small pieces of sftware). Windows might have corrupted the driver with no intentions. You can get into safe mode by pressing F8 on some models and you can either restore just before the update or uninstall the knowledge base update that caused it.

Its true. the Bios or HDD driver wont allow you to install Win XP on it.. This BIOS is compatible with only Win Vista. The only easy way to do it is by creating 2 partitions while installing vista. once vista is installed- install XP with Dual boot and than format the vista partition.
