I am trying to install VB5 from the install CD (I like it because it's easy to use) onto my new HP DC5700SFF (core2 duo model). When I start the Setup program it immediately displays "NTVDM.EXE has encountered a problem" and shows the usual "Send Report" dialog. I have had no problem trying the install CD on other Core2 Duo PC's and laptops running WinXP, I only get this problem on the HP. The version of WinXP is the same in the HP as in the other PC's. Any ideas why I have this problem, and how to get around it ? Friends have reported similar "HP-only" install problems (ie. OK on any other PC except HP).

Re: Installing visual basic v5 on HP DC5700 (Win XP)
HP's software may be interfering with the installation process. Make sure that all unnecessary software has been shut down, including AV, Antispyware, firewalls, etc. before you start the installation. Checking the error log for specific info would help determine what is causing it.

Copy all the cd's data of the cd and onto your computer into a folder "call it what you like" and resart the computer into safe mode by pressing F8 on start up untill you see the boot screen, "safe mode only" after your computer starts then go to your folder and try installing it again. if that doesn't work, call MicroSoft and thay will tell you what files need to be removed to be able to install it
Umm...is your laptop crashed??? Usually ntlldr issues ****. try to delete the former installation so a new ntldr file can be installed so as to not conflict with the damaged ntldr file that is on the pc blocking the install. It sounds like your setup is ok...at the very least get another xp cd to make sure the disk is not damaged that you are loading windows from.
It could be bad RAM, but it could also be drive error.
Try running chckdsk.exe
If the drive is ok, try copying the win xp cd to the HD and try to install from the HD
First, you need to copy your Windows XP Setup CD contents to your harddrive. I recommend saving the xp install files/folders to a separate partition than where you're going to install xp to (ie. have setup files at d:\winxp\ and then install xp to c:\ drive)
restart your computer with the win 98 boot disk
at the command prompt change to the drive with the xp files
ie. cd d:\winxp\i386\
type winnt to start installing
install as usual
make sure you have taken all the backup of your data from your system bcoz xp will not overwrite on vista you need to be format your drive which will erase your data. for installing windowx xp you need win xp cd as well as all the driver for win xp bcoz the driver is diffrent for vista and win xp .
if you have windows xp bootable cd just place in your cd-rom or in dvd rom .and go to bios setup (bios setup is just press the del button from your keyboard or f2 key it is display whrn you start your system )and change the booting sequnce from hdd to cd rom when it will boot from cd one massage will come press any key to continue just press the space bar and follow the setup instruction .
if you need more help let me know
To be able to help you on what audio driver to install, pls specify brand, model and version of your motherboard. If not printed on the MB itself, maybe you can check the info on POST or visually check the audio chipset on the mobo.
Pls post back the info/details. Kind regards.
