I like to use a cool utility calle System Rescue CD.

You can download it from: http://www.sysresccd.org

You want to download the 'Stable version for x86'. The filename should be: systemrescuecd-x86-1.1.5.iso
Burn the downloaded .ISO image to a CD using a utility such as Nero, then boot your computer from that CD exactly the same way you'd boot from the Windows CD.

Just hit enter at all the prompts to accept the default values. Once you get to the command line, you should see instructions for running 'GParted'. You should follow those instructions. I think you just have to type:

gparted

At the command line, but you may have to do some other step first. This will run a graphical partition utility you can use to delete your Windows Vista partition.

Put XP disk in CD-ROM and reboot the computer.

Click yes to install XP. It will tell you there is a system already installed on C drive. You select to install XP on C drive. It will ask if you want to format C drive, you select full format.

XP will then install

Find windows xp professional sp2 product key


If you bought it directly from Dell or an authorized reseller, there should be a Certificate of Authenticity sticker on the bottom, assuming you didn't remove it.

If you did, unfortunately there is nothing anyone will be able to do for you, Dell included(I've worked Dell CS).

If you are able to load into windows, you may be able to recover your product key through windows, google is your friend.

Dell installed on compaq


Hi, you have to use the original CD installer for WinXP that came bundled with your Compaq Presario. Reinstalling with the use of that CD will overwrite all previous installtion (from Dell) and should correctly install the drivers as well. Should the CD be not available, you may want to try and call Microsoft Support and relay to them your problem. You may need copies of proof of purchase and other documents and/or the serial number for the WinXP normally printed on a sticker at the side, back (or underneath for a laptop) of the PC. Another way is to purchase a CD installer of WinXP SP2 and go thru the routine of installing it. Hiope this be of some help to you. Good luck.
