SOURCE: The problem with my compaq
a ding or a damage to the circuit pads under the keyboard. u can try everything like disabling the drivers and device in DM, and even use an external keyboard, but ths is going to keep on happening.
u have to pull the keyboard out and replace everything, including the pad under the keyboard and on top of the MB to fix this...relatively easy and cheap fix...its just tedious.

Looks like that lappy comes with free dos? It is likely too new for XP to recognize the sata controller for the hard drive and cant find the drive itself.
This is where it gets tricky.
You need to find out what SATA controller is in the computer. You will then need to go to that manufacturer's site (like intel.com) and download them with another PC (obviously). Then you will need to get an external floppy (assuming it does not have a built in floppy drive), put the drivers on a floppy, then...
1. boot the PC with the XP disk.
2. When prompted, press F6 to install additional drivers.
3. Put the floppy in the drive and follow the onscreen directions.
My advice to you is buy a copy of Win 7 and use that - it should have those drivers built in. Another option is Ubuntu Linux - free download, has everything windows has - just cant use it to run windows software.
Good luck. =0)

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it could be faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.
