Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

Than you in advance for any and all help pertaing to my issue. Problem: 3-4yr old HP laptop. Did have Win XPsp2 on it. HDD went bad. Used Barts PE to create bootable cd-rom with half working Win XP, but that OS dows not recognize my usb HDD. Downloaded Dos 6.22 IMG file and created bootable DOS cd that boots the system. When I use Nero, I followed some info I got off the internet and created a boot cd with the DOS622.img file and tried adding DUSELDR and Duse along with an Autoecec.bat to load them both. After booting, found out ath Autoexec.bat did not transfer and cannot get to DUSE or DUSELDR as the DIR coomand poiints out that no files found. This is on older PC with Broke HDD. When put into working HDD, no autoexec.bat, but DUSE and DUSELDR are there. I have no floppy drive on either laptop. Until I purchas a new HDD, is there anyway to create a bootavle cd(or dvd)with DOS and Autoecxec.bat or config.sys?

Why do it the hard way? If your HDD is bad, most probably the system files are corrupted too and getting/making a bootable CD from the HDD files is just wasting your effort. If you laptop CD/DVD drive is still good, then use the options below: -

1. Go to any torrents site download "hp oem xp" disc from the site & burn the bootable image to a CDR.

2. Go the the Hp support Site & download the XP drivers for your Laptop model.

3. Then you can do a new installations on your Laptop.

Hope it helps.

Your hard drive is dead, you can pull it out and turn into a USB drive, (15 bucks, Newegg), plug it into another to see if you can access it. If its a SSD drive, your done, hope you have everything backed up, because when they go. their gone. get a new had drive and do a fresh install.

Check in BIOS that your HDD id showing.

if it is showing then do the DPS self Test of the HDD. Surely it will solve your issue.

Otherwise it will be the issue of motherboard.

I have a HP Intel 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller and its out of date should i get a whole different software or should i updated?


HP has an execellent support stucture in place, as long as the OS is original version or within supported range. Meaning if your system came with XP and upgraded to Win 8, it is a good chance you won't find the drivers. Just search by the computer model.

Recovery discs aren't working on my hp cq60-615dx, what should I try next?


Appears that recovery disk #2 is bogus. U can try to get a new set from HP (fat chance!) or you can do a reload from a normal, retail OS disk.

Selecteaza sistemul de operare si vezi ce drivere gasesti.
Pentru Vista am vazut ca sunt, s-ar putea sa mearga si pe win 7.
Pentru XP, v atrebui sa folosesti drivere de la producatori (Realtek sau Connexant)

I have a hp scanjet 3670 flatbed scanner and cannot get the toolbox desktop icon anymore with which i used to be able to select what kind of scan to do, such as picture, document or color slides' I have...


This is something you need to talk to Hp about. Hp which maked your old scanner is the only one who would need to rewrite a software package that will work in the new win 7 operating system.

I do have a solution to your issue without calling on HP to help you:

Dual boot your harddrive: One side Win 7 and the other Win xp. Use your Hp scanjet and it's toolbox software in win xp and now you will never have compatiblitity issues with your unit again.

If you need to know how to dual boot your hard drive, let me know and I'll tell you ok?

no ops system stated,? windows 7? or VISTA\
circa 2008 to 2011 old.
every post with Compaq in it is long. why is that?
answer, it old and sux, tops list. sorry'
its dead. and the onboard recovery fails too.
reasons, all.\

1: its virus infected ,so up dates or startup fixes or refesh fails.
as expected with all virus. (dah)

so why not use the HP.com media fresh install kit
google that, and win or ask HP. they will help, for sure.

only that works every TIME. unless.......
2: bad HDD ( a 10 year old hdd, what is its chances.. up grade to SSD now, sure)
here try the test
get a live boot CD/DVD, windows PE 8 or 10 , or linux live boot anything, (google live CD and learn)
does PC run good now, off CD/dvd drive? booted ?
yes, good, there is hope, see? see you can boot off
DVD or Usb sticks now.(UDISK)
so do the full fresh install of w7? next> if PC is good.?

as seen here

http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/Compaq-Presario-CQ50-Notebook-PC-series/3739787/model/3813492


here is the recover disk or stick page
