Access 'setup' which appears when the computer first turns on. The mouse won't function until windows is installed. On the first screen, install the hard drive in the lower part of the screen. If it is auto-detected, select exit and save, then Y when the option appears. Windows will partition and format the drive, then install the software.

You will need to contact HP and get a copy of that factory disc. Once you download that then you can add XP etc.

Factory back-up discs and recovery discs are intended to repair defective installations or to kick-start an installation that refuses to start so it is unsurprising they will only go so far.

Your system disc might be defective. This is a problem I have had with XP in the past. It is possible your CD/DVD drive has a dusty lens and is unable to read the disc properly or perhaps the new hard drive has a problem.

I suggest you instal the new hard drive as a slave in another computer and format it and run the chkdsk utility. If all is well reinstal in your computer.

Take a close look at your system disc checking for flaws and perhaps put a lens cleaning disc in your CD/DVD reader before trying again.

Hi experts, I have scoured the internet and I have not found anyone who is in the same situation as I am. I just bought this laptop by HP "hp envy touchsmart m6-k022dx sleekbook" to replace my previous...


if you want a hard drive that will not fail the hard drive should be a solid state (SSHD)
they are priced at around $60.00 a gig and come in sizes from 120 to well over 500 gig
as there are no spinning discs, failure is remote
besides that a sshd will store more for the same gig size than a disc HD
now best talk with a computer geek to get exact information but you should be able to remove the hd in the computer and replace it with a new one
now connect the hard drive ( removed ) back to the unit as you would a backup hard drive and then down load it back into the computer
remember when fitting a new hard drive you may have to reset the bios to boot from the cd os disc or boot from the removed hard drive as the new hd will not have an os on it
AS I said talk with a geek and get how to do it
computer capacity is also determined by the ram size so if you have the slots fit another ram stick

MY Macbook pro disc drive wont read the Starcraft game discs. Every other cd or dvd i put in the drive at least reads, but when I put in starcraft it just spins for a second, pauses, and spins again...


I was pretty disappointed when I couldn't play a 12 year old game on my new macbook either. The best thing to do is go to battle.net, load up the CD key and then load the software onto your mac. The downside is that you will need internet access before playing even if you play single player. That's the way I got around it.

Compaq Presario C300 Recoivery Disc 2 corrupt


Hi John.

F11 process is not working and you get a NTLDR missing when you turnon the notebook.

Steps to be performed:
1. Perform hard drive self test from BIOS.
2. If it is passed then use retail version of operating system disk to install XP or try using new recovery disks which nay cost you $15.00.

In your notebook model this issue appears if there is any issue with the hard drive.

Installing Windows XP on new drive in HP a220n


Your new hard drive has a name, like Seagate, Western Digtail, bla, bla... Go to the Mfg's web site for your drive. Download the bootable floppy disk manager setup utilities. If you have a floppy disk drive. If you don't have a floppy drive most Mfg's allow you to make a bootable CD. Lastly or maybe I should have mentioned this first. Make sure your drive is pinned out correctly. I'm only guessing you bought an IDE drive which has a jumper for setting the drive as a master or a slave or a master with a slave.
