Have you tried pressing the "Pause/Break" key on you keyboard ?
How many times have you tried to use the restore CD ? And if so do you have the same results ? Make sure your restore CD doesnt have any scratches on it or dirt on the read side as that may prevent it from being read. Also you may have to select to completely reinstall the Windows XP instead of just selecting "repair". The message may be the key.

It sounds like you were infected by a virus. Try booting up using your anti virus disk in the drive. Let it do a system scan. Once it is complete you can then reinstall Windows. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Restore disk has been lost. I need to know how to change bios to allow straight Xp to be installed


This isn't a bios setting, it's a setting that Compaq put somewhere (probably the MBR) of your OS to only allow it's restore discs.
If you want to use straight Windows XP OEM discs, just boot to the disc and you'll be able to install Windows. If that doesn't work, just format your hard drive(you'll lose everything) then boot to the XP and install that way.

Arm926ejs laptop freezes on startup


You will have to get your operating system reinstalled most likely. You may have a difficult time getting that done, unless you have the recovery disc for your computer. Your computer came from the factory with Windows CE on it. It's sort of a dumbed-down version of Windows XP. You could try to put Windows XP on it. If you can get it to take Windows XP, then it will probably work better anyway. You may be able to get the Windows CE disc from the laptop manufacturer. Try their website.

Start up problem


It appears that Service Pack 2 did not completely install. Try to boot into safe mode (F8 at startup). If you can, go to control panel, then add/remove programs. Scroll all the way down, select Windows XP Service Pack 2 and click "remove".

After it's removed, you will need to reboot, but the system should come up normally after that.

Hope this helps - please remember to rate :)
