The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a Compaq SATA drive on a disk etc and can install it when XP asks for a hard drive driver, then XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.
The Fix.
Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive, this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then install XP normally, and all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

How to use webcam for my hp compaq CQ40

Since you did not give the specification of your laptop, I assume it came in with built-in webcam. First go to start and browse through All Programs for YouCam. If it is there, launch the program. If you do not have it on your program list, go to

and download either the trial or the full version of the webcam software YouCam and install on your laptop. This should be able to activate your webcam.

Webcam for Presario C700 not working

Hi v_tahseen,

There is a couple reasons this could happen.
1. You might have another program that's using the camera and it is conflicting.
2. The software is not turning on the camera in which point try to turn it on manually.
Just for the heck of it try to use the camera without the youcam software if it still don't work.
Then uninstall youcam and see if it works.
Sometimes software is not compatible with all computers and it does some funky things.

Youcam 1.0

Here you go; Bear in mind, the download is 46MB I'm rather curious however, as the only Youcam I could find (Cyberlink), is a program, rather than an actual webcam. Are you sure the webcams model is a Youcam? or did you infact mean the program? If you did mean the webcam, you can find the drivers for your laptops webcam on the HP website;
