Re: i cant install windows xp on my computer
OK. You say that "You can't put it on", so by this I presume that there was previously an Operating System on your Machine? If so, was it Windows XP or Windows Vista? If you had Windows Vista on there, but did not like the look and feel of it, and decided to remove it so that you can put Windows XP on there, then it's a lot more trickier to format Drives that have been shipped out with Windows Vista OEM, then what it would be normally. If your Laptop had XP on there, but for one reason or another, it needed to be reinstalled, then let me know and I'll try and help you out a bit more based on the answer you reply with.

ok i had to do this with my mothers computer, when you delete a partition, you have to make a new one in its place, i say put in the xp cd, then say to create a whole new windows installation, when it asks you to choose a partition, delete all partitions, then make a new one, your choice to size but keep it enough to at least install windows onto it, then after that just reformat that partition and install windows, that should fix it.
Ok download drivers for vista then extract and find folder VISTAx86 open and right click net8185.inf and choose install option, if not install and have problem post coment rere, "dont work" ang find for xp, link here for official
yes ofcourse you can download it from www.isohunt.com. search there for windows xp sp3 and download it using vuze(you have to download it from the same site before downloading iso image of windows xp sp3)
Uninstall any drivers that are partly installed reboot. plug in printer do NOT turn on. Install drivers after drivers loaded a popup should appear asking you to connect printer. turn on printer ensure usb cable is connected. Computer should then find printer hope this helps
