Set your bios to boot from disk, install the operating system dvd, and it should boot from the dvd. Follow the instructiones, the entir thing will take 30 minutes or so. Have your serial number ready and you should be good to go.

    Sorry I was busy, Is it loaded on the hard drive in a second partition?, If no then you can't re-install.

    It should be on a separate partition, when you boot up it should say at the bottom of the screen to press F1 or F3, and that will open a screen that will give you choices one of which should be to re install.I am seeing that you don't have the disk so the OS must be on the drive. If not you can borrow an xp and get to the point where you put in your serial numbers, it should be ok being that you already paid for it.,peace Gym

Can i download windows xp home edition on one laptop and then make a cd backup to download on the other laptop that actually needs it


No you cannot, especially if the laptops are different make/model.
You need a Windows XP Home installation CD and the installation code that is printed on the Windows label on the bottom of the laptop.

I changed a hard drive with xp home edition installed to a nother laptop windows dosent start in normal mode just in safe mode


Hi

Thank you for your query

When transferring a hard drive from laptop to another, it is wrong to assume that Windows will automatically work, as both laptops are different windows will not laod up on the other laptop

You will need to reinstall a fresh copy of windows on the hard drive in order for it to work on the other laptop

I hope this has been useful

Proplem Installing Windows XP Home media edition


Unfortunately, you will need to purchase another operating system disc, even though you have the product key. That key is assigned to the disc that came with the machine. Why exactly did the Xp disc of your father's not work?

I am unable to reinstall my windows copy


Have you created the Recovery CD's? If so, put the recovery CD in the disc drive and restart your machine. Most notebooks start from CD first and then from hard drive. If not, you could change that in it's BIOS. (Press F10 at the moment you see the HP Invent logo).

When the disc boots it allows you to choose from multiple options. Choose the options that sounds like "Restore factory defaults" or something like it.

The D-partition is only used to create the disc and hold info. There is no software there to run for recovery.

I hope this helps, if you need more help just ask.
I work at a company who is an HP Partner so.

Greetings,

Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook - major memory problem!!


it sounds like the memory, try removing the new memory from the notebook and see if there are any errors, if not then that stick is ok, try just your new memory in the notebook and leave out your old memory, if the same problems you know its the new memory, if there are no problems, then the two sticks wont work together.
