Hello! I recently did a clean install of my Compaq NX 7010 notebook as I am planning on selling it. I have the original install discs of XP Pro, then I downloaded SP2 as that was what I had running on...

old laptop , is HP compaq now, there is no COMPAQ now.
XP is 3 years, dead OS ,and a virus magnet.
that BSOD? is bad memory in most cases but XP loves to do it.
i have org install disc from
  1. Microsoft
  2. HP
  3. or Compac long ago..
this lap to is so old most have been scrapped now.
why not get a newer one from GOODWILL, this one they would not touch its so old (savvy them no?)_
why not get a 10 year or less LT. which can run Win7
at least
then it has value,
yours is like $20 as parts on EBAY, scrap.
who'd buy a XP relic lap top, only the desperate is my guess.
Its like buying an old YUGO car, (ouch)

so why put cash money in a box that has no value. why?
what if memory is bad,or HDD or CDRom.
are you going to buy parts for that? really?

XP need SP3 or is useless forget SP2,
MS does not support XP
HP does not support over 10 year hardware.
so, why mess with things not supported>?
I do but I have expensive APPS that only run in XP or vista
and have near new, LT very old that run that when needed,
like 1hr a year.
if not for that, id donate them to GOODWILL where they belong.
most old gear like this is sent to the 3rd world as a gift.
or scrapped.

ah I lied , 2005 support, at HP, 12 years old.
get them before they pull the drain on it

for install disk only these work.
from HP, HP owns compaq for 16 long years.

media kits real matching only your LT. !!

Windows XP crashes after about 2 minutes. New window XP installation crashes while installing devices with 34 minutes to go.

So do mine , I have narrowed it down to have something with the
GPU to wrong drivers beeing installed or setup for the AGP.
Its possible for example to Run Linux standalone , but not possible to install any OS whatsoever.

I unable to install Xp in my compaq cq61-132tu. The install option just doesn't get highlighted. Also, i don't have another computer.

I assume you are attempting a "downgrade" to Xp from Vista, since this laptop does not come with XP.
From the Compaq information page:
  1. HP does NOT support XP for consumer notebooks, so if you have any difficulties regarding XP, do not expect HP will help you.
  2. HP may demand you to install back VISTA if you have hardware problem to troubleshoot it.
    An option to consider-put your original Vista hdd away and install new one for XP.
  3. Some of the notebook features may not work in XP due to uncertified licenses pointed in this guide.
  4. Microsoft has released three (3) Service Packs for XP, use only SP2 for the first trial. Why? Since many of XP drivers are released based on XP-SP2.
  5. Always make Vista Recovery cd/dvd before downgrade to XP. see it here
  6. You have a folder with drivers & programs that may prove very helpful after XP downgrade.
    Copy folder C:\Swsetup to DVD Before formatting your hdd.
  7. If you have a pre-SP2 XP cd, get the full SP to Integrate with Nlite: SP2 Nlite HERE
The help guide for downgrading is here. There is a lot of information on this process written there.

However, if what you want is a an XP look and feel so you can compute the way you used to, change the Vista to look like XP in the display properties.
If you are trying to run non-Vista software, try running it in compatibility mode. To do this, right click on the program files and select properties and then locate compatibility..

HP Pavilion laptop freezes daily and i force manual shutdown

It sound's like there could be a compatibility problem, maybe corrupt file's, or missing start up file's, have you tried doing a window's update, or doing a disc check on the hard drive, go to my computer right click the drive then go to propertie's, click on tool's then click check now for drive error's. if that do'es not work you may need to reformat back to the original xp os.

Drivers not found.

Your Compaq came with Vista installed. Finding drivers for XP Pro with SP2 seem to be very troublesome. Somewhere HP Compaq has these drivers for you laptop. If you call them & they find out you bought XP Pro they will not support you in finding the proper drivers for XP Pro. How ever you can call & ask what it will cost for a recovery CD for XP Pro w/SP2.
Click the link to Compaq & listed is your laptop & what software & drivers are listed. If you need other drivers that are not listed, post what you want I'll try & find them for you. Please be as detailed as possible.
You may find some here.
