Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook
Windows Vista will not allow you to install Windows XP software over it. Microsoft has programmed it to not allow anyone to downgrade, basically because there are so many problems with Vista that they would lose money if everyone downgraded. So the only way to load Windows XP is to find you some software that will wipe your hard drive clean. You should be able to do it with the "fdisk" command at the DOS prompt. But beware; this will compeltely delete everything off of your drive. So back up any files that you need. Then you can load Windows XP.
