Hi, if you are using a SATA drive there maybe a setting in your bios to let the laptop know which drive you are using.(or you may need third party software from the drive manufacturer) if you are using an IDE drive i would check it integrity first by scanning or use a known good drive to test.Also try removing and reseating your ram.
hope this helps

Hi! sir, hw r u. when ever i try to install win


If you don't care about data on the hard drive format the drive first and then install XP. You may also find that your XP CD is bad in this case try different disc if possible. Good Luck.

Hye..my acer aspire laptop very bad causes of virus infection and mess with all my files and folders. so, it think reformat is the best solution for me. But unlucky, when i restarted my Laptop and install...


Hello !
You have said that you have done installation and Harddisk are not recognised this is a indication of damaged Harddisk ie its registry is bad or its not working .
I recomend a new Harddisk then you will able to use your laptop
Before you change the harddisk you should check the IDE cables by swapping them coz sometimes they could be faulty, connect new cable to the harddisk then on it try installation again .

Good luck

HP530 shuts down within 15 seconds as it loads XP


Probabpy an XP problem, start XP in safe mode (press F8) as it is loading.
If it runs then it is probably a driver problem. Try restarting in the last good configuration. Keep posting until the problem is resolved.

Non detection of hard disk in dell laptop while installation of win xp sp2


I haven't heard of not being able to delete a partition before. You could go to the manufacturer of the hard drives website and find the software to do a low level format or you could download a linux distribution and use the installer to remove the ESIA partition.

I would need to know the model of hard drive and laptop if you need any further assistance.

Missing Operating System error


your bought compag computer is a new one , because that error is appears only if the hard drive or the harddisk is defective or damage. Your installation of windows xp is finished totally because sometimes the error is appears because the system installation is not finished and the os system cannot read. try to re install again the windows and delete the old partitions and create again if the problem is the same even there is no error in the installation until it's finished i say that the problem is in the harddisk. Maybe the harddisk develop a bad sector in the master boot record of the hardrive
