    Swap out the memory in your laptop with known good memory and see if that takes care of the problem.

How to reformat pentium 4 2.8g to windows xp


Since Windows XP isn't a filesystem, that doesn't quite make sense, but it sounds like you want to find or buy a Windows XP DVD, put it in the machine's DVD drive, enter the BIOS to check your settings and set it to boot from CD-ROM (it works for DVDs too, after all,) save settings and reboot...then install WinXP.

Keep in mind that if you have unsaved data on the system's hard drive, you would want to swap it out for a new one until Windows XP (or Ubuntu, or Fedora 15, much more modern OS which are quite capable of running WinXP programs using a program environment called 'wine' (no relation to drvino.com)) is installed; that way you're not going to overwrite old stuff you wanted to keep.

Then you can install the old drive on whatever interface is handy and migrate your settings over, make backups, use the old drive for pagefile or to try new filesystems and virtualization environments, etc.

Hi, the problem here is that you may well not find the drivers for windows 7, and to re install XP you will need to reformat your hard drive; for this you will need to change your primary boot device to CD Rom, and then boot with your XP disk in drive, selecting boot from CD when it appears. Re partition and reformat and after reboot it will start to install XP.
Hope this helps

  • At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (128 MB is recommended)
  • At least 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available space on the hard disk
  • CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive
  • Keyboard and a Microsoft Mouse or some other compatible pointing device
  • Video adapter and monitor with Super VGA (800 x 600)or higher resolution

Reformatting a drive


The BIOS has nothing to do with reformatting a drive.
If you are doing a system recovery, placing the recovery disks in the CD/DVD will do the job for you. You just must boot from the first recovery disk or, in some computers, choose the recovery option at startup--this uses a recovery partition on the hard drive to do the recovery for you.

Reformatting the Toshiba Satellite 5005-S504


you did not specify what operating system you are currently using, anyhow, if you are using winxp, configure the bios setting set the cd rom as your 1st boot device and insert the winxp cd to the cd rom then save and exit the. computer will automatically reboot after exit. a message will appear "press any key to boot from cd" you may press a key. you follow correctly instructions or message from the screen then you will succeed. hoping that this will help you. if you have some queries you may send me thru my e-mail.
