    I need just a bit more information. Does the optical drive work? What happens when you put the disk in? If nothing, can you hear it moving? What happens when you reboot the computer? Are you getting an error message?

Preasrio f557us wont boot past the XP screen


Ram was your best bet on a laptop. But you can load XP onto itself so it reloads without deleting any files. However, if it still may fail. If that happens a clean install is your next step.

Have you tried booting in to "Safe Mode", your Blue Screen could be caused by wrong driver or other hardware issue...Booting into "Safe Mode" will load minimal drivers hopefully bypassing your problem.

XP is dead. Don't waste money on it. Download a free, safe, modern operating system and install that. I have an old Toshiba and it runs Puppy Linux, but you might like Mint or Zorin, or Lubuntu if it's a 32 bit system. download one or two onto flash drives or CD, and give it a spin. Puppy will run off a CD, even if your hard drive is bad.

Eee PC 1800HA can't go through windows xp installation


You have a "Driver Issue", generally a "Display Driver" but not always, what you need to do is start PC in "Safe Mode" Press F8 at turn-on, and then remove the display adapter from device manager and reboot, windows will then install a"Generic" driver and ya should be able to get to desktop to get the correct driver, and install. Sometimes it is faulty components too. But it seems ya may be past this point seeing as ya tried to re-install XP on it again... not the best way to handle it, but of course ya didn't know that.
However since ya have tried a setup ya may be in a bit of trouble. I think maybe ya only option is to Format the drive... and totally reinstall Windows XP. (Or ya just gonna have endless trouble). Use the DVD that came with ya PC and reinstall it.
