I want to re install xp but it says setup did not finf any harddi


It sounds to me like the reason your computer has crashed is because your hard drive has failed, or possibly that your boot sector is corrupted.
Try holding down the F8 key when you turn it on. A recovery screen should appear. A full factory reset will result in lost data. Just follow the instructions. If the screen doesn't appear, your hard drive is suspect.

Non-system disk or disk error


Your laptop isn't seeing your hard drive to boot up the system. You need to replace the hard drive.

How to install win xp sp2 from cd on hp 530 laptop


1 - Place CD in the Drive
2 - Restart PC and go into Bios by pressing Del, F2 or whatever instruction the start up screen says.

3 - Go to Boot configuration and set it to Boot from CD
4 - Save and Exit
5 - Follow onscreen instructions untill you get to the Windows install screen.
6 - You may have to create a partition (Drive Letter) on your hard drive if nothing was there before, you can assign as much hard drive space as you want to this. If your not sure just use all the space available. This will be your C drive.
7 - Pick the drive you just created and install windows on it using the on screen menu. It will ask you if to format the drive, say yes and use NTFS not FAT as NTFS has more features.
8 - Just say yes to all questions asked after this point.

When windows is installed it will ask you for a CD key and to activate by going on the net, I'm afraid I can't help you with this.

Hi,? my machine has an error of loding operating system it's hp 530,it brings this informationn (no hard drive were found ,so it is not detectiting any hard dirve installed.


The most likely explanation is that your hard drive has failed. You can try removing and reseating it. Failing that, borrow one for testing or buy a new one. As a last resort, try putting the hard drive ( or even the whole laptop ) in the refrigerator overnight. Really! :) If this restores operation even temporarily you definitely have a bad hard drive.
