How do I scan a hp laptop?


You need to provide a little more information to get an accurate answer. If you are able to see the log in screen, the display is probably fine. If you are using Windows 8.1, this has been a problem for some of the HP systems after certain updates. You'll need to do a recovery to get things back to normal.

  1. Turn off the computer and wait at least 5 seconds with the computer in a full off state.
  2. Turn on the computer and repeatedly press the F11 key, about once every second, until you see the Windows loading screen.
  3. If a language selection screen opens, select the language you want to use to continue.
  4. On the Choose your keyboard layout screen, select the keyboard layout that matches your keyboard type. On the Choose an option screen, click Troubleshoot .
  5. Choose an option

  6. On the Troubleshoot screen, click Advanced Options .
  7. On the Advanced options screen, click System Restore .
  8. Advanced options
  9. Click Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 as the target operating system. Click Next .
  10. Click the restore point that you want to use, and then click Next .
  11. The Confirm Restore Point window opens.
  12. Click Finish to restore your computer to a previous point.

Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.
Step 6: your PC will boot to the windows.

You have probably formatted the hard drive when trying to install XP, XP is not compatible with Mac hardware. You will need to purchase a copy of the Mac OS or try and locate the restore disks that should have come with your computer.

It will not go past the windows loading logo


There is nothing left to do for this one here. The best thing to do is to take your computer to the manufacturer for repairs. Other than that the best thing to do is to purchase an external optical drive / cdrom or dvd drive and purchase another windows xp disc and reinstall it. or if you have the windows cd for this computer that you could use that as well. Those are your best options.
