Hi,

If I may add to the other posts...

A couple of things:
1. When you formatted, it is precluded that Windows will have to be reinstalled, were the appropriate drivers likewise reinstalled? This could be verified with the absence of any yellow or red marks in Device Manager. If there are any marking (red/yellow) then that is indicative of the drivers missing or a hardware problem;
2. Most problems could be software in nature, what specifically does the laptop fail to do after your reinstall of Windows?
3. Have you tried using the recovery CDs that came with the laptop?
4. But then again, it is also possible to have hardware issues, any message when the failure occurs? BSODs? restarting again and again?

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello, this is how I dual boot my laptop with windows xp and windows 7

1. Backup all you important files, use an external hard-disk if possible
2. Make sure you have two drives or partitions: usually drive C and D
3. Insert your xp cd, do a quick format of drive C and install
4. Boot into windows xp and format format drive D if necessary
5. Insert your windows 7 DVD and follow the prompts. When it asks you to upgrade or new install, choose new installation
6. When you are asked to choose a location choose drive D
7. Complete your windows 7 installation
8. Thats it, you can now install drivers and programs

When installation is complete you will see both os options: windows 7 and previous version of windows (i.e xp)

I have done this numerous times without the need for any other step or software. The only rule is to is to install xp first, then windows 7.

All the best

For the psswords i can recomend to reset them from BIOS but to do that you must first know them. The problem with recovery disks is solvable if you boot from an XP disc and format the C: partition in NTFS file sistem and when it starts copying files to install the windows stop the installation ( F3 or press the power button for more than 4 seconds.. don't worry you will not sustain disk damage... done it myself with the same notebook for a dozen times ) After formatting the partition C: try recovery again and it will work.
NOTE: for the formatting of the partition you must set the HDD mode from AHCI to ATA witch permits the XP setup utility to "see" the HDD. If it is set in AHCI mode the setup utility for windows XP will not detect youre HDD

From the above it appears as if you attempted to reinstall the operating system using the recovery discs. Given this you should attemtp this again and make sure that you re-format your harddrive before installing the Operating System again. If you are installing xp again the following link will walk you through the steps.
Basically boot from the cd and re-install windows making sure to delete the existing partition step 5 is critical.

Reinstalling windows XP


you need to have the windows XP installation disc.  your going to want to back up all files onto some other drive (e.g. usb) and then reinstall the files.  this will delete everything off of your computer so thats why everything must be backed up.  if you dont have the installation disc, let me know and i can get you the files another way
