Question about HP Compaq nx6110 PC Laptop
I downloaded Internet Explorer 7 on my laptop (The microsoft website said that I had to have it in order to get updates for Windows XP~ I also use Mozilla Firefox) and when I went to restart my computer it would not come back on. I have tested the AC adaptor so I know that it is not a power problem. I was on it earlier today and it was working fine. I didnt have this problem until I downloaded IE and now I cant even get my computer to turn back on to try and fix it. When I hit the power button, the computer does try to come on and then dies again. Please Help!
Can you hear if your if your hard drive is spinning??
Try placing the XP disk in, booting from the disk and go through the process as though you were going to install xp WITHOUT installing. If your hard drive is not dead it will show you that you have a windows installation already there. If it is there then it will be asking you where to install XP. You may have to be quick getting the disk in since it seems like you laptop turns right back off so it may take you 2 tries. 1 to get the tray open and 1 to boot it up.
If the cd doesn't boot up, be sure you have your cd selected as the first boot option in your bios.
Hope this helps!!

The full guide can be viewed at Microsoft's site to install / uninstall Internet Explorer 9 (eg use IE8):
I've pasted the relevant portion for your convenience:
To uninstall Internet Explorer
The following instructions apply to both Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
Click the Start button , type Programs and Features in the search box, and then click View installed updates in the left pane.
Under Uninstall an update, scroll down to the Microsoft Windows section.
Right-click Windows Internet Explorer 9, click Uninstall, and then, when prompted, click Yes.
Click one of the following:
Restart now (to finish the process of uninstalling Internet Explorer 9, and restore the previous version of Internet Explorer).
Restart later (to wait until you shut down or restart your computer).
After you uninstall Internet Explorer 9, the previously installed version ofInternet Explorer will be available on your computer. It is not necessary to reinstall.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks!
