Windows XP crashes after about 2 minutes. New window XP installation crashes while installing devices with 34 minutes to go.


So do mine , I have narrowed it down to have something with the
GPU to wrong drivers beeing installed or setup for the AGP.
Its possible for example to Run Linux standalone , but not possible to install any OS whatsoever.

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)
JUST SHARING=)

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.
