    I heard about this in Ubuntu. I'm not sure about Gentoo. It was basically an error with the search feature. The search feature had an error where it got too much processor time and was causing the processor to overwork itself. Turn off any search features and see if that helps.

when this happened to me on my Vista machine last year, I freaked out until I accidentally fixed it using by booting with my original Vista boot disc, and choosing 'Repair OS'. Try finding a/your original Windows XP install disc and seeing if it will repair and replace your own Windows boot sector. It would be best to find the one that came with your system, or another like it, but if all else fails, just try a hologrammed Windows XP install CD, but instead of 'install', choose 'repair'.

On laptops and notebooks it is not advisable to have dual OS as Windows does not tolerate any other OS along with it. If you can partition the disk (not so easy a task), then you can install Ubuntu on the second partition. While if you can not partition the HDD, then secure professional help. If even that is not possible then I suggest download Knoppix from www.knoppix.com and burn a live CD. Live CD is a bootable CD that runs the OS. Knoppix is free to download and is not too different from Ubuntu.
Just remember that IF you do manage to partition the HDD then you must install Windows first and then Ubuntu as the latter is capable of co-exsisting with other OSes and not Windows. If you install Windows later than it will overwrite the boot sector and render Ubuntu unusable.

How to enable wireless in BIOS for my compaq nc 6220


It needs to be enabled in the OS not in BIOS. There are several options in the OS to enable it.
1. By turning on the switch (#3 on the image below)

2. On the Device Manager (right-click on MyComputer, properties, Hardware tag, Device Manager) right-click on the Wireless Network adapter and select Enable.

3. If it is enabled, then disable and uninstall it and then install it and enable it.

If any of this fix it, then you may want to check if it is a hardware failure.

if you have a windows xp disc when you start to install it it will have to format it first by default unless you ask the cd to repair windows in which case it just over writes the files and registry
