Please try this;

Go to bios setup and load bios setup default, and then restart your computer.

If not work, fix all the connection inside toward the hDD and other connection inside.

Verify also if you had inserted any non bootable diskette in the Fdrive. (if there is , remove that.)

If not work then try to reformat and reinstall the windows again.

May this help. any problem arises please notify me for my further instruction to you. thanks, melnavz

I want to install windows xp on my pc...

Windows XP insatallation process may take 30-45 minutes depending on your computer.Here is how to install windows XP in your computer.

Preparing for Installation

    1. Look for the Windows XP CD in the pack.Check the product key. Without it, the installation cannot take place. The product key is usually located on the Windows XP CD case.

    2. Make sure the computer hardware is well arranged. See that the monitor, keyboard, mouse and CD drive are properly connected.

    3. Confirm that you have the hardware drivers CD. You will need it for the communication between Windows XP and the components of your computer. This CD should have been provided by your computer vendor.

    Installing Windows XP

    1. Place the XP CD into your computer. Restart your computer. Press the spacebar as soon as you see "Press any key to boot from CD" on the screen.

    2. The setup has started when the keyboard, not the mouse, is operational. Press "Enter" when the Welcome to Setup page is displayed.

    3. Read the Windows XP Licensing Agreement that appears on the screen. Press F8 on the keyboard to accept the agreement. This step will select the hard drive to install Windows XP.

    4. Press "Enter" and you will see the default "Unpartitioned Space" on the screen. Push the up and down arrows and select "Format the partition using the NTFS file system."

    5. Wait for 30 minutes until the computer completes the formatting process. It will erase the hard disk drive and copy the setup files. Windows XP will now restart with your mouse working.

    6. Continue with the installation process. See the Regional and Language Options option and click "Next" to proceed if you prefer English. Otherwise, set the language by clicking on "Customize." Then click on "OK" and save the settings.

    7. View the Personalize Your Software page. Enter your name and organization's name. Click on "Next" to proceed. On the following page, see your product key, just as the one that appears on your Windows XP CD case. It is a unique 25-character key. Click the "Next" button.

    8. Fill in the required information on each page, such as date and time settings. Keep clicking "Next" to proceed to another page until you reach the Welcome to Microsoft Page. Accept the default setting when the page appears that has "Will this computer connect to the Internet directly, or through a network?" If you are connected through some network, select the option that describes your network connection.

    9. Click "Yes" in case you are connected to the Internet and the Ready to Activate Windows page is displayed. Click "Next" to continue. Click "Yes" when the Ready to Register with Microsoft page appears. Click "Next" again.

    10. Fill out the form on the Collecting Registration Information page. Enter the names of all the persons who will use the computer on the "Who will use this Computer" page.

    11. Click "Finish" on the Thank You page. This will complete the installation of Windows XP on your computer.

Computer wont bootup windows xp error loading operating system drive 1 not found please help me

1.Restart your computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, press the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If the menu does not appear, restart your computer and try again. Use the cursor keys on your keyboard (your mouse will not work) to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start.

If you recently installed new hardware, shut down your computer and disconnect the hardware. Then, restart Windows XP and troubleshoot your hardware to get it working properly.
Restart your computer and press F8 again. This time, choose Safe Mode and press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start in Safe Mode, which does not automatically start programs and hardware, and displays very primitive graphics. If Windows XP starts successfully in Safe Mode, you can remove any programs or updates you have recently installed. Then, restart your computer normally.

Performing a repair installation of Windows XP can fix many serious startup problems. While you should not lose any of your important documents, you might lose settings, and you will need to reinstall many updates.
Before performing a repair installation of Windows XP, you should have both your Windows XP CD and your product key available.
To perform a repair installation of Windows XP
Insert your Windows XP CD into your computer.
Restart your computer. If prompted, press a key to start from the CD-ROM.
When the Welcome to Setup page appears, press ENTER on your keyboard.
On the Windows XP Licensing Agreement page, read the licensing agreement. Press the PAGE DOWN key to scroll to the bottom of the agreement. Then, press F8.
When prompted, press R to have Windows XP attempt to repair Windows by reinstalling important Windows components.
The repair and reinstallation process might take more than an hour. Eventually, Setup prompts you to answer questions just as if you were installing Windows XP for the first time. For detailed instructions, read Install Windows XP.

Windows XP Pro USB HID problem.

First suggestion is to shut down, change ports and then, upon reboot, wait a few minutes to let XP resolve the 'new' USB devices.
Second suggestion is to download and install the manufacturers drivers and then try switching ports.
Final suggestion is to use the port that works. i.e. I went to the doctor and said "It hurts when I do this". He replied "Well, then don't do that.".
Good luck
p.s. you may want to list the model of the keyboard if you would like a more specific response.
