Call the manufacturer or visit their website and give them the serial number. They should be able to help you. If you've inadvertently reset a security setting, they will unlock it for you.

If this is a stolen laptop, you may be encountering is disk encryption or hardware security. It's there to prevent access from unauthorized users.

Hi,

The set up says it couldn't find the harddisk because you need to slip stream the harddisk driver into the windows xp cd where as in the normal setup cd's it is not present.

You need to download the SATA AHCI controller driver and slip stream it in to your windows xp setup ..

You can find the information in detail on how to slip stream from the website below:

I have a macbook OS X, i boot up on windows xp then i notice that theres only 10% remaining on the harddisk intended to windows, then suddenly the blue color appear and says that i must shutdown the unit....


Your hard drive is corrupted and the OS needs to be re-installed on the hard drive. Re-install the OS using your discs, but first use disk 1 to go into disk utilities and select your hard drive, then click repair disk permissions. After that click on repair disk and see if that don't help. If that don't help then your next step is to re-install the OS, because somewhere the startup file got corrupted. If that don't work, then your SOL, which means your hard drive has given up the ghost and you need to install a new hard drive.

Harddisk is not getting detected


You computer cannot find your hard disk. The hard drive could be faulty or the hard disk controller has failed.
Reseat the hard drive (remove it and install it again), this may fix your problem with the connector on the motherboard.
If reseating doesn't work, the hard drive may be faulty, remove the drive and insert it into a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port, if this computer see your hard disk as an external drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive then it is OK and the fault most likely is the controler in the laptop.
If you cannot see the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty. To get your laptop operational again, you need a new hard disk and need to install Windows on the new hard disk together with your

Install xp in compaq presario c700


The hard disk may be set to Enhanced AHCI SATA mode. Look for Legacy or IDE mode setting in BIOS menu options.
XP SP2 does not recognise Enhanced SATA mode hard disks.
see http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/10/23/windows-xp-setup-could-not-detect-and-find-any-sata-hard-disk-drive-on-ahci-mode/ 
You may be able to use NLite to make a CD which has correct SATA drivers.

What is this


if you are doing a clean XP install the CD will ask if you if you want to change your partitions.Afterwards it will automatically format the hard drive.Some of the OS discs dont come with drivers you will have to hunt for them on the internet.If you are using a restore disc copyied from a working machine it should have generic drivers already loaded in the disc.
