REINSTALL XP HOME EDITION ON Compaq Presario SR1350NX Desktop PC
I'M TRYING TO INSTALL XP ON MY Compaq Presario SR1350NX Desktop
PC. PICKED UP A NEW WD SATA 200 GB HARD DRIVE TO REPLACE THE
MALFUNCTIONING SEAGATE. WD INSTALL DISK AND COMPUTER RECOGNIZES
THE NEW HARD DRIVE AS "OTHER DEVICE", FORMATS FINE AND READIES THE HD
FOR THE OPERATING SYSTEM. WHEN I TRY TO INSTALL XP, THE HARD
DRIVE IS RECOGNIZED OKAY, ASKS IF I WAN'T TO USE THE CURRENT FORMAT FOR
THE HARD DRIVE, LOADS THE INITIAL FILES, BUT THEN STOPS WHEN IT STARTS
COPYING THE FILES TO THE HARD DRIVE. I PLUGGED IN A PATA DRIVE
INTO THE EIDE CABLE AND IT DOES EXACTLY THE SAME THING. WHAT
COULD BE GOING ON??????

Well, here's the bad news. 1) Windows XP is not supported any more by Microsoft. (2) You need the original CD's that previously installed XP on your computer. If you can't get them from the previous owner, then you'll have to try and find some original CD's and reinstall XP on your machine, from scratch. (3) If your computer has what it needs, an option is to install Windows 7 on your computer - it depends how old your computer is and if it has the necessary hardware.

I hope the following information is helpful.
If you are trying to install the driver for the Broadcom ethernet NIC that was pre-installed (NOT an ethernet card that you purchased and installed yourself), there is a softpack (updated driver installation) download available from HP/Compaq. It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.
IMPORTANT: Check to be sure that your current Operating System, and model of the network device you are trying to install, are BOTH listed below BEFORE you download!

Assuming the system came preinstalled with XP, you should have a Cd marked, "Compaq Operating System CD", mine was red. If not, insert the XP install/upgrade CD you purchased from the store. Follow the onscreen instructions and when prompted for a license key, use the key on your desktop label for the reinstall or the key that came with your product on a new install.
Are booting the laptop from the XP CD? If so it should just give you an option to delete partitions then format and install starts. If you try installing XP after Vista has loaded it wont let you as XP is older. Cheers from Scott
