Can I insall window 8 os into my compaq presario sr1820nx 64 pc


You have to be brain dead to want to install this OS in your machine.

It is terrible. Stay with Win 7 or wait a year and then try win 10 after the bugs have been eliminated.

The code purple on my computer


Code purple is because an O.S other than a genuine HP has been installed and as it is HP it would have to be HP as it is designed especially to run HP computers only, For example if you try to install an O.S from a Compaq even though Hp and Compaq have merged it is written for Compaq computers not HP and vice/versa. Re-Install your original HP O.S and this should sort out the code purple error. I hope this helps.

Re-Formmating


No you can't.

After your OS CD inserted it will perform a routine to see which it is your brand machine, if your machine is not a Dell the OS installation will be aborted.

You can try using a Generic OS CD

Invalid code, and wrong product


Sounds like you have 2 legitmate choices.

Either install WIndows ME on the system since that is the OS that shipped, or purchase and install a retail copy of Windows XP

Please tell me how to connect HP Compaq 6820S to TV. Notebook has only VGA, TV has S video


Hello Pabi24,
You can use a VGA to S-Video converter/adapter such as can be found here: http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?from=R40&_trksid=m37&satitle=vga+to+s+video&category0=
This will work as long as your laptop's video out/VGA port is working, but won't get your audio to the TV (audio will still emit from your laptop).
Good luck.
