Do you know how to do command line check for bootcfg and windows installs? Also typing "msconfig" in the Run bar will show boot script. If you put the new Windows on a separate partition then you can just delete that. Steve  I am running out for a quick f2f job but will return shortly:)

No sound card installed Xp automatically

you need to find what kind of soundcard you have and download then install the drivers for that sound card, open up the case if you have to and try to read what brand the card is and what model it is, then go online and get the drivers, that should fix your problem

How can i install windows xp sp3 in compaq presario cq60-104tu.

Ok it must be one of this problems:

1) you had vista, you wanted xp for whatever reason. you are doing a fresh install using the service pack 3 disk. there is hardware combatiblity issues and must stay with vista. this is becoming more common with the life of xp coming to an end.

2) you had xp and are reinstalling and hardware has failed.

3) you had service pack 2 or before and are updating your service pack and there is some issue with hardware or software.
