I m unable to open my laptop some kind of


Are you trying literally to open up your Laptop with a screw driver or something... or are you trying to install XP on a Vista pre-installed laptop... Here's the solution...
Go to the BIOS setup [press F8 on startup], & change the disk controller setting from AHCI to IDE. might worth the try. Some Laptops don't have option of SCSI or IDE. But there are SATA Enable/Disable option. Try disabling SATA. Make sure you have all the necessary drivers for your laptop before installing windows...
Let me know if this doesn't solve the problem...

There are several ways you can check if you have a working hard drive in your laptop.

1. Get into the BIOS configuration of your laptop, you may be able to see your laptop's configuration, and maybe even see your hard disk. This means your computer has been configured to work with the hard disk, but does not mean the hard disk is OK

2. If your laptop has a floppy disk attached then you can use a boot floppy disk and boot up in DOS. Then you can then run FDISK and then display the hard disk. If FDISK does not detect a hard disk the it is most likely dead.

3. If you can get access to a USB hard drive adapter cable or an IDE adapter cable that you can connect to a working computer's secondary IDE controller. THEN
Remove your laptop drive and connect and connect it to the USB adaptor or an IDE cable, (make sure you connect the drive correctly to the connector) then connect it to a working computer.
If you use an USB adapter, when you connect it to a working compute with XP or Vista operating system, and if the hard drive is OK then you will see the contents of the laptop hard drive.
If you connect the IDE cable to the secondary contriller and then boot up the working computer with XP or Vista operating system, if the laptop drive is OK you should see the contents of the laptop hard drive.
If you don't see the hard drive, then most likelt it is dead.

Check the status of the device in Device Manager to make sure that the device driver is working correctly. (If you need help doing that please ask.)

If no joy then:
Change the transfer mode for your CD drive in IDE Channel Properties loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); 1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Manage. 2. Under Computer Management (Local), click Device Manager. 3. On the right side, expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. 4. Right-click the channel where your CD drive is connected, and then click Properties. Typically, this channel is Secondary IDE Channel. 5. On the Advanced Settings tab, in the Transfer Mode box for the device that represents your CD drive, click PIO Only. Typically, this device is Device 0. Then, click OK. If the issue is not resolved after you change the transfer mode for the secondary IDE channel device 0, your CD drive may not be located there. Use the same procedure to change the transfer mode back to DMA if available. Then, repeat these steps to change the transfer mode for IDE devices in the following order until the issue is resolved: • Primary IDE channel, device 1 • Secondary IDE channel, device 1Note Primary IDE channel, device 0 is connected to your boot disk. This is the hard disk that typically contains your operating system.

Hard Disk and Booting issue


go into your BIOS and on the bottom of your screen there should be a (last good config) of (fail-safe config) value for one or=f the F1 to F12 buttons. also. are you running a 4gb hdd??? or is that a typo? anyhow, XP REQUIRES 2GB at all times free if your hdd is running at less that that (cause its full) your boot up could be messed around. finally make sure that the little plug on your hdd is across the Master or cable select pins not the slave as this can cause probs too. good luck.

You didn?t give a whole lot of information to go on but if the problem is just slow drive detection you can speed things along by deactivating the IDE drive slots that are unused. For example if you have one hard drive on IDE channel 0 and a CD device channel 1 disable the secondary spots on each channel, it will make the drive detection faster. If that doesn?t help give us some more specifics about your current configuration and we can pickup from there.
