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.
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.
