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??????

    Removed one of the ram chips but, still wouldn't load windows.
    I've tried the hard drive in my dell and it works fine.
    Something that is strance is this: When I use WD setup disk, the
    WD hard drive is only recognized as "additional storage devise" and not
    as Master or Slave on the motherboard. It formats the hard drive
    just fine. The bios recognizes the hard drive normally but when
    I try to install the OS, it loads the inital files but, then when it
    starts to copy the installation files, it stops and gives me the blue
    screen of death. I tried loading Win 2000 pro and it does the
    same thing but gives me a syntex error on the blue screen. The
    computer boots up and runs fine using my copy of Ultimate Boot CD for
    Windows. I'm thinking of copying Windows from another Compaq and
    try booting that way.

    IT'S ALLLLLLIIIIIIIIIIIIIVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEE! Your
    recommendation was spot on! I took out the other ram module and
    put the first module I had taken out back in and it started loading
    Windows just fine. Thank you so much for your help!

    I am doing a new build with a Geforce 7050M-M2 board with a Phenom X4 9550 Processor. New ram and HD. After files are loaded and the reboot it goes to the black screen and stops. Can someone please help me figure this one out?
    Thanks

Files copy errors during the XP installation process are often an indication of BAD RAM.

If you have dual RAM modules, try install with 1 memory module installed

    If you took out one RAM module, and the problem was the same, did you try the other module by itself. Everything you describe, indicates BAD RAM

I have been given a Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop but it has password that we don't know . It did not come with any type of cds. I need to wipe it clean but how do I restore the windows xp home edition?


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.
