if you still have an installation disk, put it in, restart, and run a startup repair. if that doesn't work, try to do a system restore. if that doesn't do anything you'll have to completely re-install windows.
are you pressing any key to boot from the cd when you get that message??
after windows finishes copying all the installation files during the first stage (dos mode) of the os installation you get a reboot, after the reboot, you should get that message that says press any key to boot from the cd, DON'T PRESS ANY KEY (or you will start again), leave it cd in.. just don't press any key... hopefully the installation process will continue on it's own onto the next stage (graphical mode).
if the computer just goes back to the dos mode without you pressing anything the problem may actually be a real problem and it may require further troubleshooting..
see how that goes with the first suggestion and post back if needed.
If this is a new issue you can revert, or go back in time when the computer was working fine my using 'system restore'
To use System Restore to restore Windows XP to a previous state, follow these steps:
Log on to Windows as Administrator.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore. System Restore starts.
On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next.
On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next.
Note A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
Log on to the computer as Administrator. The System Restore Restoration Complete page is displayed.
you successfully restored your computer to a previous state, and the
computer is performing as it should be, you are finished.
Also there is a setting under 'power options' on the advanced tab that controls how the pc shuts down when the button is pressed, go and check to see how that setting it configured, by clicking on the drop down button
Because the hardware differs from the sr201 and the pav 533 you cannot use the recovery discs of one model on the other. You have two solutions. First, you can order your recover discs from HP for around $25 by calling them at 800.hpinvent. Second, you can use an OEM copy of windows xp and use your xp key that is on your computer. You may have to call in and have it activated but they will do it.
If you don't have any CDs you could try the F10 key to see if you have the contents of the CDs hidden on your hard drive. It is the same steps as above except instead of inserting a CD you would use the following as step 2:
When the Compaq logo appears, press the F10 key on the keyboard. (You have only a few seconds to press the F10 key before the normal startup process continues.)
If you this doesn't work and you are certain you don't have your recovery CDs you can get a new set directly from Compaq from the following site: https://warp2.external.hp.com/driver/dr_country_select.asp?Product=438985-001&lang=en&cc=us
