    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...

Hi. first i change my hard disk and then i format it after formating the sound is not working so please help me to solve this problim my computer is IBM R60


you need to install the sound card driver to be able gain sounds on your pc. If you have the Cd with you, just run it then install sound driver.

If you don't have CD, download on this support site and specify the exact model.

The Hiren CD is a tool and you correctly formatted your hard disk, but Hiren CD does not install Windows on your hard disk. You need the Windows installation CD and the Windows installation product code to install a fresh installation on your hard disk.
The Windows version that was installed on your computer and the installation product code is on a Windows label that should be attached to the back of your computer.
If you don't have a Windows installation CD then contact Compaq/HP for a copy.

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.
