You need to scan the drive with a very good ant-virus software such as Avira anti-virus, then you scan thoroughly. This should work but if it does not, you can try formatting it

I have hp compaq 6730s before its got xp windows now the windows is corrupted now when I instal xp windows the system doesn't boot with external cd/dvd rom since the its own dvd rom doesn't work properly...

2008 PC from HP(old compaq name)
RECOVERY this PC ,per the book. (Ive done it)
this PC has a working F11 key if the HDD not bad, not changed out or the F11 partitions not damaged,
Power on hit F11 per the service manual. page 141

CD boot fails
to boot to CD you must hit a key, called hit any key
to boot CD (aka. offically El Torito spec, wiki that and learn this)
If you dont hit (I use the huge space bar so easy to reach)
then no CD boots ever. by DESIGN. on new PCs that is true
and now you have to turn off SAFE BOOT too.
so those rules are first.
some PC, even make me hit (HP) the space bar to boot USB sticks this too is a fact. so do that.

my guess F11 is dead so you used discs, unstated disks , no HP disks (RIGHT>?)

XP the dead OS, this means adding things, , to the PC.
will fail. XP plug and play is dead, for vast things now for 3 long years, since MS ended this support. why not upgrade XP
to W7?

Old PCs do not like to boot , to external drives, its modern IDEA that (2008 is not too old,but IDK , if yours has it)
If you did boot to CD , inside or outside
XP (from MS ,not HP) will ask you to find drivers, and tell you to hit F6 and insert a floppy, tell me how you can get past here?
you cant, using NON HP install medial
XP is 2001 disks, 16 years old laying about. from MS
and guess what it cant see your HDD. due to no SATA drivers.
so the path you are on is full of pitfalls. see?

a modern feature in BIOS,its 100% a features of BIOS to boot any USB or External drive, (but eSATA might boot , not you no esata)
you posted with no mention of what external drive you have.
USB , esata, or what? Im guessing USB cable external drives.
the External drive needs a power pack to run right i most cases.
in bios, go to ALL screens, power on hammer F10
Setup bios is F10, go to all screens and turn on all USB features.
then change boot order to.
CD (hit space bar to boot CDs or DVD)
USB (hit space bar to boot USB devices (any key = space bar)
then if all that above shows up F9 can be used to override above.

F9 only works if and only if.
1: bios supports it,! (IDK)
2: bios, has all USB features turned on, in other pages in BIOS.
including USB boot , turned on, if seen there. it must be on.
3: F9 only changes boot order this time, it does not enable features, that do not exist. ever.
why in the world not get a good CD/DRIVE. its like $10 used on ebay, pocket change, no?
or install with USB sticks?

there is legacy USB setting in BIOS, turn that on.
I can not teach you BIOS. (ive seen them all, so know this.)
but not yours, HP chances them like the weather, like the changing of the wind, directions. makers of BIOS changed 4 times!
and upgrades on BIOS changed on some HP PC, 10 times. or more. so I know NOTHING here, nor will most others due to that FACT. (unless theirs, is same as yours exactly)
only you can can explore BIOS, page by page and see what is there.
Test 1. (all techs have this in there KIT)
boot from USB stick, NOT external DVD drive)
if this fails doing DVD external boots is not possible.
find say any ISO for Unbuntu 17 linux, and burn the USB stick
using rufus. the boot the stick (fail now)?????????

that is the test for USB boot if that fails the PC is too old
and only fixing your bad DVD drive is the only cure.
Do not run XP with out SP3, once you have it running
XP has 700 exploits, and is a virus magnet.
never use XP is the best answer, but you you are not there yet.
so only BIOS matters now, that and only that NOW>
if the USB test 1 above works, I would.
id buy W7 from
the burn a stick
then load w7 , now it has future.

this PC is supported by HP in W7
here is the proof here

never run XP or VISTA today, 2017, they are now officially dead.

Learn that booting is a function of BIOS not windows.
windows is a goal and is only startup files to load windows.
booting happens at the lowest levels ,in BIOS.
BIOS has code in my newer PC to boot to any USB device.
but not external drives.

tricks for compaq old
6730b the CD is called,
'Notebook Upgrade Bay'
(odd name that)
but I have a SDD in mine so not so odd !
trick 2, is some compaq change sata to IDE or the CD will not boot. (sad no?)_
BTW my HP laptop can boot to both bays, HDD and upgrade bay
both bays in mine are SDD. one is w10 other is Ununtu 17.
booting to external drives are the most difficult tasks of all
some do , some dont.
but I always start with a stick first. test that , for booting
then go wild with external drives. (booting )

this is all for now, we can peel the onion as deep as you want, ask.

Fujitsu USB handydrive is asking for a driver upon connection with a deskdtop running XP SP3. Same SP3 on HP and Toshiba notebooks have not problem recognizing the disk. Is there a special driver need. do...


If your external HD works with other notebooks then the XP SP3 operating system may cause that problem. There may be a driver conflict.

To solve that you should change the drive letter name of your external hard disk. To be able to change the drive letter of it, you can install and run the "Tweak UI" software which is downloadable from the windows website. To download Tweak UI software for windows XP, please click here.

1. After installing and running the Tweak UI you will see the screen below.


You can access your system settings using this tool such as disk drives, and you will be able to change the current settings.
Be careful not to change the other settings.

2. Click on "My Computer > Drive" as shown in the picture below.

And assign another drive letter to your external hard disk (for example checking drive letter F:) and click button "Apply".

3. Then restart your computer to see if it works.

This is one of the solutions that I did before. Your problem may need different solution. This is possible then you can ask again. Fixya experts solve every problem.

But I hope this helps.
If you would like to vote for the answer, this will help the others to see the similar problems solved and also will be a satisfaction factor for me to continue helping you.
All the best.

Sorry, but if your hard disk fell down and now isn't regognized by the computer the most possible situation is that the disk is destroyed.

My pc now recognizes the drive as a local drive, but the drive cannot be read. Is it possible to restore the drive without deleting the files on it? They are some extremely important.

There are several things to try:
1) Disconnect all USB devices and restart the computer. Then plug in your external Hard Drive. In some cases, this has worked to enable external devices as there's a conflict between some USB devices. Once working, you can add any other USB devices you have.
2) Since the drive is recognized by XP, right click on it and if you have access to Tools, try to check the volume for errors. It may ask you to reboot and do a scan disk on startup. Sometimes although the computer recognizes the volume, it hasn't sufficient information as to how to access it. Running a scan disk can cure that problem.
3)Re-assign the drive letter; Occasionally XP can't access a path to the external drive; if it assigns a letter, in turn it will gain access
Change Drive Letter
The link above provides step by step instructions to change the drive letter
4) Run Windows Update and install SP3; Service Pack 3 addresses issues with external devices that weren't fixed in either SP1 or SP2
I do hope one of these answers provides a solution to your problem. Please post back with any other questions or just to let me know how you made out. Unfortunately, you have a common problem but no one FIX has been identified by Windows to solve it.
Best of luck!

Windows XP does not have built in SATA drivers. You will need to download the XP drivers from Western Digital's website and install before the computer will allow you to format and use your new drive. Hope this helps.

Toshiba Laptop A55-S306 shuts down with error messages

It sounds to me like a virus. Boot up from a recover cd or windows cd and reinstall freashly.

If you don't have a recovery cd, contact Toshiba for one. They go around for $40 to $50. If you can't get one, buy Windows Vista and boot up from that and reinstall.
