Do a high level format first. Download AUTOCLAVE burn it to disk run it this will put the hard drive in a preformatted state then reinstall XP. To avoid the blue screen of death I use Linux (PINGUY 11.04)
if you run winxp then follow these steps
1)Insert the bootable windows xp setup dvd/cd in the drive
2)The system will boot the dvd by asking you (PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT THE CD...)press enter
3)Then the setup files starts to load on the screen , a blue screen appears , it may take sometime for setup loading process. wait till it gets over
4)after the files get loaded ,it will give you three options
press enter there
5)then press f8.then press esc on the next screen if it shows the previous version of windows
6)then you will be able to see your drive there ,the drive which you want to format just press d on the particular drive and it becomes unpartioned space,again press c on the unpartioned space and create the drive again ,
7)do this for every drive
8)and for installing the fresh copy of windows choose a particular drive and press enter and then choose the format using ntfs NOT QUICK the third option remember
tats it for xp
If it is for vista or 7
insert the dvd of the particular os and then install which doesnt have some complicated things like xp
Are booting the laptop from the XP CD? If so it should just give you an option to delete partitions then format and install starts. If you try installing XP after Vista has loaded it wont let you as XP is older. Cheers from Scott
I sorry but I don't think I can help you this time as there is heaps of things that can cause a blue screen, but try reinstalling windows again it may have missed something on the previous loading, On the blue screen there is a number simular to this 0x00000023 if you google this number you may beable to find an answer to your problem
at that xp screen the computer loads all of the drivers and windows components. is is possible that something recently installed was not good or something has become corrupted. reboot the computer and as it is coming up continually tap the f8 key. you will get to the windows advanced options menu. choose the option for last known good configuration. if this doesnt solve your problem you may need to reinstall windows on this computer.
