Put the windows XP installation disk in your cd drive and start the disk drive . Follow all the instructions as they appear. You will be asked about formatting the HDD or making a partition. to make things simple, do not partition the HDD, formate and install XP on NTFS. Follow these instructions and you should be alright. You can always get back to me if you find you are having trouble. As this is your first time installing XP, I would stay with the computer and keep an eye at what is going on. Keep a log as you are installing XP, both for your self and in case you need to get back to me. That way I will know what you have done an what has proberbly gone wrong.

You need to have the windows XP installation disc.  your going to want to back up all files onto some other drive (e.g. usb) and then reinstall the files.  this will delete everything off of your computer so thats why everything must be backed up.  if you dont have the installation disc, let me know and i can get you the files another way

Sound leaks from my laptop (i.e. sound is audiable from both speaker and headphone) i am currently using Windows Xp and had to do a forced installation of my sound drivers. the laptop model is compaq...


sound LEAKS from your laptop? that's a new one. :)

please clarify forced installation of ur sound drivers, and if anything try reinstalling windows xp, and/or your sound drivers normally.

try going into devices and uninstalling your sound driver and reinstalling it before doing the above solution - may just fix it.

How to Change Windows Language From Arabic to English?


There is no way of changing the language in XP, on some version of vista you can do it true the Windows update utility by downloading your language pack.

But in XP you have to reinstall.

Windows xp will not load


When it asks for administrator password, and you didn't have one set, just push enter and you'll be able to continue.

If you don't need any information from the computer, use a program to writes zeros to the drive and then you'll be able to install windows. HDD manufacturers provide a program to zero the drive

Can't reinstall windows xp


hmmm its seems your HDD is of SATA interface and XP is not able to detect the HDD interface. you can solve this problem by making SATA Disabled in BIOS setup.

Try to make disabled SATA from BIOS, and then make install.

If any problem... Ask me
