Usually when this happens it is either a physical hard drive problem or a hard memory problem (sometimes it is other hardware but more than 90% of the time it is of these two components) . Google and download DFT, burn it to disk following the manufacturers instructions, boot the system to it and do an advanced full test. If that comes back clean, Google and download Memtest and follow the same steps. If both of these comes back clean, it is possible that there is some other hardware issue. If doing a full install be sure to format the disk, if doing a soft install (repair install) then you may be forced to do a full clean install.

I want to remove win7 from my compaq cq57 laptop (intel core) and replace it with xp pro


In your case try the RAM part 1st.


Blue Screen Of Death


  • You may need to roll back system with System Restore (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode).
  • Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
  • Re-install Windows. Clean install works best.
  • Test one DIMM at time. One slot at a time. To eliminate possible bad RAM.
  • Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

Installing winxp on presario cq40-636tu


Why would you want to do that? What does the blue screen error message say? Blue Screens most of the time means you've got a driver issue. Are there windows xp drivers available for the CQ40? If it came with windows 7 on it that means it's fairly new and I'd doubt they took the time and effort to make drivers for a previous operating system.

First when you power up the computer PressF1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios .
Then load optimal defaults then save settings and exit.
Then boot your computer with winxp disk..
Delete all partition of harddisk and create partition again .

Try this 2-4 times you done it.
If still face problem then you have to refix RAM memory. Also check that your winxp disk is working fine.Change your winxp disk then try.

I cannot install OS winxp onto sata drive pc is Acer aspire x3200


Hi,
There could be two reasons for the blue screen either a bad harddrive or loose memory cards in the slots. Try reseating the memory cards on the motherboard.
Also please post back the Stop code you are getting on the blue screen

Thanks for using Fixya

You can repair windows without deleting your files. Your files will still be intact. To do this, ff. these steps:
  • Insert your WinXP disc.
  • A message will appear saying "Press any key to boot from cd", you can press Enter key.
  • Windows will start. Wait 'til the Terms of Agreement shows Press F8 to agree.
  • There will be options to install WinXP or to use Recovery Console. In this time choose Install WinXP.
  • It will now search for your previous WinXP installation.
  • This section now let you choose whether to Install a fresh copy of WinXP OR to REPAIR your windows.
  • Choose REPAIR so that your files stored in your harddisk will not be deleted.
  • Wait 'til it finishes the installation.
*Drop a comment when done. Feel free to ask me. I will gladly assist you.
