When XP Media Center starts installation, computer freezes

Hi, I have a Compaq Presario SR1750NX. I lost the recovery information from the partition biult for this by the manufacturer. I ordered the recovery disks and I started the recovering procedure (full one). After both disk are read, XP asks to remove the CD and restart the computer. When restarted, XP goes through few windows then it shows a blue screen and on top of the screen there are three lines. I don't remember exactly the messages, but the first one says" Don't turn off the PC

Leave the CD in and restart and see if that completes the install.

My compaq presario/sr1750nx/ w sata drive/ amd 64 athlon. came with windows XP. I put put a new hard drive in the computer, with Windows 7 installed. I power up the tower, and the monitor stays blank?


Hi!

It is very unlikely to get the machine working when the windows 7 HDD was installed in a different type of computer, because all drivers installed with the operating system are related to the hardware from the other computer.
The best solution is to make a clean install, using the windows installation disk, and after that to download from Compaq's site the latest drivers.

If you still have reasons to use that previous installation, you can try to do the following:

1. Boot from the Windows installation disk
2. Follow all steps until it discovers the previous installation on the HDD
3. Choose to repair it (or better upgrade, if this option is available).

But doing so there only 50-50 chances to get it work, or to get it to be stable.

Hope it helped.

Regards,
