Hello,

What options are not available for you? Some examples will help me determine how to fix the problem. You can enter the BIOS on your laptop by hitting the 'F10' key at the right time when first pressing the power button. Sometimes you have to press F10 more then once so it catches at the right time.

Hve a compaq presario laptop installed win 7 but now doesnt respond ,want to install xp plz help


XP is obsolete and unless you have SP3, there are no drivers from Microsoft.
Go to hp.com and download the Win7 drivers. That will fix your problem, if they are available for your model.

I have Compaq Presario and got Virus "ThinkPoint". I want to re-install win xp but in Bios the only two option is there one Boot from Floppy and other ATAPI CD ROM . But unfortunately I have no...


Find someone with that copy of iwndows and copy the cd are use it to boot the system and fix the re-installation.... if bye chance the virus is still there, a fresh installation will get rid of it, jus be sure to get the drivers first though... (you can use drivermax for that!)

Yes it is best to format the PC and reload the OS again although I would suggest that you load the latest version of the WinXP family as single boot OS and work. It should give lesser problems with a single genuine anti-virus installed.......sodeep

System continuously reboots after initial format and copying of the files.


If there is jumper setting in your second harddrive set it to slave drive. And the first boot drive to primary. If these doesn't help your installer disk have a problem.

Leave a comment if this doesn't help.

Installing XP to C700


First disable sata native support because after installing xp and restarting will crash it.so disable sata native support now when installation of window xp is complete ,reboot the computer and enter bios and select the first boot device to hard disk and also disable cd rom boot to disable .by doing this when computer starts it will start with hard disk and not with cd rom .

Windows installation issues


Either you have a defective CD, or a defective Hard Drive, or defective memory. Firstly is this a clean install? Try reformatting the drive and running chkdsk or a manufacturers disk utility. Then remove fingerprints and other marks from CD by wiping from the centre outwards. Let me know how you get on.

Windows dont start


It means that some files needed for windows to restart are missing,probably a system file or boot files. Some windows xp users usually re-install and repair their windows xp system using their original windows xp install disk and selecting the "repair" ooption. But another practical solution is to note down the missing file, then,on another PC using the same system,search for that file and copy, though you will have to note the folder location of that missing file from another PC. Boot your PC (the one that doesn't boot) with a system diskand on the command prompt (DOS prompt) copy the missing file from yourcopy disk to the same location where the missing file should be situated.

If the practical suggestion wouldn't work, then you have to re-install your windows on top of the current installation using your windows cd to repair yourwindows sytem, if this still doesn't then you have to install a new windows systemlocated in a different location in your disk, this way you still go to your saved files and backup your files.

Dvd instalation


That's the limiting factor with laptops. You're bound to what the manufacturer provides or compatible 3rd party components. Different interface means not compatible (internally). You can try buying a Compaq DVD/RW for the Armanda, or buying an external DVD/RW that meets your needs.

Again, there's not too much freedom with parts when it comes to laptops.
