How can i install windows xp on hp compac dc 7900. blue screen error shown during installation


Restart the process again...insert the cd in to the cd rom..restart the computer then you will see a screen which says press ant key to boot from cd...press space bar..the installation will start from the point where it was left when you received the blue screen...

If the blue screen is coming again and again then contact any local tech there might be some hardware issue.

Also make sure while installatng the windows there is no extra peripheral attached with the computer like printer,webcam,mass storage device etc.

I have a problem on my computer i reformat my comp to windows xp sp3 but it dosnt have a sound ive tried to install real tech but it allways restart my computer what should i do?


try booting in safe mode. keep pressing F8 when the computer boots up till a screen with options come. select safe mode with networking. if it boots, then install avira antivirus(it is available for free download). seems like a worm/virus. if not i recommend reinstallation.
my suggestion with my personal experience is to get a clean new installation and be cautious about connecting drives/ network before a antivirus is installed.

Dell poweredge 1600 sc XP install


I believe you would need to install the Serial ATA card driver before installing windows. When you first start Xp it asks if you have any ATA drivers that need to be installed first.    My guess,since it is used, that you have not the driver for that card?    Give us the make and model of that card and we can help look for the driver,or take it out all together and use an IDE hard drive.

XP install failed on every HP Cmpq D220M


try running a check disk utility on them to see if this fixes the problem, if not then your copy of XP is either flawed/invalid, or is missing some very crucial installation files
