You need a bootable or genuine Windows XP cd. to install just put the disk in the cd rom drive and restart the computer. If that doesn't work go into the bios which can usually be entered by hitting the F2 key or the DELETE key, from there just change the boot order to boot from cd rom drive first and that should get your rolling.

Can I install the hard drive of my old hp 8510p in my hp presario cq 42? will it run the old windows vista? My new hp presario cq 42 is running the new windows 7?


If the hard drive is compatible with your presario cq 41 then it will work. The operating system does not matter if you're switching hard drives.

If you want to update the operating system on the old hard drive, you will need to have the software for Windows 7.

Hi,
Installing Windows XP will have no effect on your charging system. Have the charger and plug socket checked at your local PC store.

Window xp not installed


CQ40 108TU (compaq) is designed to work only on Windows Vista. If XP is installed then likely some of the hardwares will malfunction. It is advised that only Vista is installed in YOUR CQ40 108TU

You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to hp.com and search for the model of your Laptop.
