Your laptop has a version of an OP System called FreeDOS

If you want to put XP you may have to Format your drive and install widows as the main operating system

When i try to install windows xp, then all files are extracting rightly but when start up is loading suddenly blue screen appers. so plz help me to solve this problem. give me suggestion.


Hi jenishrabadi, Have you tried using different source software for your windows xp installation.
There should be an error code when you receive the blue screen. post the code here, it may seem like 1) either corrupt software or 2 ) Faulty hardware. Most likely memory.
without further performing any more diagnostics (as we do not know what the actual error is) and making the assumption it is faulty hardware, if you have more then one memory cards in your notebook, try and take one memory card, then try the setup/install. if this fails .. put the memory card back in, and remove the 2nd memory card and try again.
good luck ... hope this helps ...

Laptop starts and after a while of using a blue error box falshes on the screen and turns off comp I can't even read the blue box its sooo quick!


That is called the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death).
try a chkdsk:


Chkdsk
Take the Windows XP disk. Boot from it, then DO NOT select F2 (automated system recovery) but continue through the procedure until you get to the point where you can choose between installing Windows XP and entering the Recovery Console. Once you get into the Recovery Console, do chkdsk and fix potential errors on your disks! Type Chkdsk C: /R at the prompt.

Or try a XP repair:

XP repair
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I want to install windows xp on my acer 4230


Hi shaikh_shaha

Can you get it to boot using any of the options it gives other than boot normally? If the blue screen is caused by hardware then installing xp will still present the problem. If the blue screen is an operating system crash then using the recovery disk or doing a repair install will solve the boot problem.

If you still rather install xp then you need to go into BIOS and set 1st boot device as CD. To go into BIOS you will need to press F10 or F2 (usually) as displayed on the splash screen when you power on

Does this help?
