Hey,
I had a similar problem w/my HP Pavillion.
Did you format the CDR/W's before you're burned you're restore disks?
XP will not work w/many of the newer laptops, it won't load many of the drivers.
So, you'll have to go to the Compaq support website-enter make/model/serial # etc. Then order a Vista restore CD-That's model # specific, for your particular model and it will load MotherBoard, Video and all other drivers.
Compaq shouldn't charge you except for shipping the CD's.
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/cpq-country/cpq_support.html
You'll have to use you're XP CD first and make sure you do a complete fdisk, delete all partitions & then do a full and complete format of you're HD until the bios auto detects all the space on the drive-ie: if you have a 120gig HD make sure it reads 120gig then run Vista OS restore CD's and you shouldn't have any probs after that.
Good luck!
