In this case you will have to first check your hard disk for errors if it is having any bad sectors, if it is not having bad sectors then try changing your ram. if changing your ram is also not helpful then dear i m sorry to say but the problem is with your processor

Unistalling Microsoft VISTA HOME Edition


Are booting the laptop from the XP CD? If so it should just give you an option to delete partitions then format and install starts. If you try installing XP after Vista has loaded it wont let you as XP is older. Cheers from Scott

Hello... i have compaq c700 was corrupted and then i formated it but the display say there's no disk.. anybody know about this problem! please help! i can't install OS!


the reason you probably cant install is because your probably trying to install windows XP on a sata hard drive.. xp doesnt contain sata hard drive drivers.. u either have to use vista, find the sata controller drivera nd load from floppy by hitting F6 during setup.. or have someone slipstream the drivers into a copy of xp.. try emailing info@logiccomputerservcies.co.uk as I know they can help

Partition not 100% on laptop 700 presario


From the description loo\ks like it's not a partition problem, but the Compaq CD.
Try to partition Hard Drive using Windows 98 bootable CD.
Try to install Win XP from different CD - doesn't have to be Compaq. Later you can download drivers.
