Why would you go back to XP after having 7?
Installing any operating system:
When you first boot the computer you will see a screen that says press: F1, Delete, etc to enter setup. Once you are in setup (BOIS) navigate with keyboard arrows to find 'boot sequence'. select boot from 'cd'. Remember you have to go back and set this to boot from hard drive after you load the OS (Operating System).
Make sure you save your files, everything will be gone. Also, backup all of your drivers or download them from the internet and store them on a USB flash drive. As you may not be able to access the internet to load them.
Boot from CD>going into setup>install xp>delete partition>create>partition>setup will format drive>quick is fine>will have some prompts for selections, etc.
I hope this helps.

Best regards, i can say that it really problem, that problem with 64 bit, driver problems will be all time with printers, scaners, webcams, and other. I think will be better, if you reinstall windows 7 32 bit, for work without probles.

Make sure there is nothing attached to the laptop,remove all devices like keyboard,mouse, flash drives and retry. If still having same error flip the laptop over and remove the battery and open up the 2 other compartments that have a screw holding them. One holds the memory modules and the other the hard drive, check and re seat all connections, then try again. If you still have the same error your hard drive is most likely failing,

I'll recommend you to directly try Driver Detective and let the software
have a free scan to automatically detect & update the missing
drivers. This way things can be much easier & efficient. Also you
don't have to risk install wrong drivers which might cause severe system
best regards & good luck!
