Question about HP Pavilion dv1680us PC Notebook

1 Answer

I have an issue with my HP Pavilion dv1680us

I am trying to do a clean install of widnows xp profissional and cant install it. It bombs out after formatting and says cant find hard drive or hard drive not found. I also used the F6 function and placed the floppy with the drivers and it will format then comes up and tells me to install the Matrix driver in drive A: which I press enter and nothing happens. I do have the same disk in that I used when pressing F6. What am I missing or doing wrong??

Thank you
