Hi!my computer freezes during setup and cannot continue at the point 34 that is when its left 34 minutes to complete setup please help me with directions to solve this problem thanks


34 minutes is the hardware detection portion of the Windows install. To get around this, boot to BIOS, turn off all integrated devices (Audio, Modem, Network Card, 1394 etc) and remove and expansion cards (Modem NIC etc) and disconnect all external devices except keyboard and mouse. Then try install again.
If system goes past 34 minutes, then you finish the install and add items back one at a time

Unable to Downgrade vista OS to windows 2003 or XP(CQ-LAPTOP)


During the Windows XP install it cannot find a hard drive?
The reason why Windows install does not work is because Windows XP does not have a SATA driver support and therefore cannot find the hard disk.
THE FIX FOR THIS PROBLEM.
Go into your BIOS and turn off Native SATA support or set it to IDE controller (this setting depends on the type of BIOS). Save the setting and reboot and you will be able to install Windows XP.
IF YOU CANNOT DO THIS IN THE BIOS then :-
Go to the Compaq/HP WEB site to download the SATA driver for your model laptop. This driver is used to install the 3rd party driver
during the Windows installation (during the Windows installation you need to press F6 to allow you to install the SATA driver).

Freezing up when installing winxp pro.


MAY BE THIS COULD HELP. PUT YOUR LAPTOP IN FRONT OF A FAN, THEN TRY TO FORMAT IT AGAIN, IT SOUND FUNNY BUT I FACE THIS CASE MORE THEN 3 TIMES, THE LAPTOP JUST TOO HOT DURING THE INSTALLATION (PUT THE FAN WITH LEFT SIDE FACING THE FAN)

Cannot find hard drive while installing MS XP on a hp nc6220 laptop.


hi
It used to happen like this during the new installation.
goto BIOS setup and check that the HDD is correctely detected. check the size it reported. If its correct, give one more try. else the HDD firmware is corrupted and can be repaired.
thank you

Check the disc for scratches, this could be a bad disc. However, I'm leaning towards another issue besides the hard drive being bad. Tell me what initially happened to make you buy a new hard drive. Hard drives aren't effected by the heat produced by the machine, so tell me what made you think it was heat that caused the hard drive failure.
