    There is more than one type of XP.
    There is Home and Professional, and there are different distribution types, like Retail, OEM, and Volume License.

    Your product key will most likely only work for the correct type.

    Where is your XP from?
    Retail box?
    Came with your PC?
    Installed by my former employer?

    Also, do you have a product key for your XP? Is there a sticker on your computer? what does it say?

Hi,
It is not a hardware issue. It is easy to install Windows 7 in your laptop but if you want to install Windows XP you have change the Hard Disk type to IDE. For that you have to change settings in your BIOS. After changing to IDE you can continue your installation normally as you done earlier...

thanks & regards

How to format my compaq pressario cq40 604tx laptop with xp


hi

Boot from your XP install CD and select the option to format the C:
drive. If you don't have an install CD, use the "System Restore" CD or
DVD that came with your system. These restore your system to factory
settings. There're still other ways to format your C: drive, but
without either an install CD or restore one, you'll end up with an
unusable system after formatting the C: drive.
If you use the XP install CD, you'll need to be SURE you have all the
drivers for things like your DVD/CD drive, NIC, video, audio, modem, etc.

I did fresh formatting but i still have viruses on my pc


The virus could be a partition virus. Did you delete the existing partition and then format? If not then, I would suggest, you to do it first.

It is also likely that any of the CD's that you are using for installing software's might be infected by the Virus.

Therefore, first Delete the existing partition, then create new partition, then install XP and after than Install a good AntiVirus software.

There is also another easy way out, if you are able to get the name of the Virus, I could suggest the AntiVirus that can remove the virus without having to format it. But this is only if the virus is not a Partition Virus.

Infeced virous make folde in a folder.exe


The virus is called "Brontok" or "Rontok". Its much hard to get rid of it. It may cause ur computer to restart while opening any anti virus, cmd.exe, command.exe etc. Only way is to san the drive from some other computer with an updated anti virus.
OR
Format driver with windows installation, instal windows, and install an anti virus before anything else ( do not open any drives except ur windows installation partition ) and get latest updates. Scan and remove virus.

Format error


Do you realize that formatting your hard drive DELETES ALL of the data on that drive?

As in, gone forever...

So if you have a desktop, then you likely didn't do a "format", so WHAT did you do?

Was the PC you "formatted" an XP Pro machine, or just XP Home?

I'm not sure, but using an XP Pro disc on an XP Home machine may break things.

If it's an XP Pro machine then just put the disk back into the drive and follow the path to perform a windows repair installation.
