Cannot install windows xp in CQ40-317tu

I bought Compaq PResario CQ40-317TU with Dual core T3400 configuration with Free DOS. when I am trying to install Xp Sp2 after loading of file a Blue screen is appearing and the system comes to halt. I finally installed Vista which was easily installed but I want to switch back to XP as it is very easy and convenient to use rather than slower and confusing vista. Please help me to install Xp on my machine thanks

Blue screen is normally comes when some drivers are not good installed or corrupted or incompatible with the operating system.
Try to install xp with the default settings and then use this program to diagnose the blue screen :

what happen is this once you see such again change the Operating CD you are using and get another XP CD to try it again it might be the fault of the CD but if it persist then find a system that you will us it to format your harddisk and load the operating CD then later you change it back and ready for use

I am not able to install Windows XP on Compaq Presario CQ60-104TU


Recommend removing OLD DOS Operating system First. Then Install Windows XP. XP will NOT upgrade older systems unless it's Windows 98 and Fully Updated. However, can NO Longer do because Microsoft does NOT support any versions other than "2000/ME/XP/Vista".
