I assume you know how to get into the BIOS screen. If not watch carefully while the system boots. It will tell you which key to press. It could be del(delete) or F2 or F8. Once you know that, shut down the system. wait about 30 seconds. Turn the computer on. Immediately start pressing the key to get into BIOS. Once in, change the sequence of boot device from Hard disk to CD drive. save and exit. open the cd tray put your XP CD in it. switch off the system. Write down the CD key on a sheet of paper. It is a 20 character long code. You will find it on the back of the PC. switch on the computer. Your computer will boot from the CD and give you the installation screen. Select fresh installation. Let it complete. It may ask a few questions like your name, computer name domain etc. You may name it as you wish.

Hi,

You cannot downgrade Windows 7 from Windows XP by not reformatting the hard drive. You need to Remove Windows 7 first, before installing Windows XP Operating System. In order to use the Windows XP CD to fully reformat the Hard drive, follow the steps on the link below.

Windows Xp installation in compaq laptop


Buy an XP cd if you are going to do it legally, reboot your laptop and boot off of the CD, The XP installation screen will then appear, you will have to choose which partition you want to install XP on, first you may need to delete the partition currently there, then create a new partition. use the default size because you need to leave at least 8 mb free space, then its just a matter of going through the installation steps with your serial code, location, and other details.
