Ok, you need to put a new Op system on the computer, (I assume you want XP) If you have an older HP computer that came with XP on it, you probably already have the discs

Now keep in mind, you will probably have to go online and get the drivers for a lot of your hardware (modem/ethernet port, wireless card, maybe even your touch mouse)

HP recovery disks don't boot!


Sounds like you need a windows vista operating system disc. The recovery discs set your system back to factory settings like when you first brought it home from the store. But to me, the system is bloated with all the software and trial junk that you don't need. If you can get your hands on a Vista Operating System Disc, then do a clean install from it. Just make sure your Certificate Of Authentication (COA) sticker is readable so that you can activate the vista once you've got it loaded. If you can't get your hands on a system disc, take it to a computer repair shop, I would think you could find one that will load the operating system for $60 or less.

My son's HP530 laptop freezes at start-up at the HP "Invent" / Intel screen. I've tried to boot from the DVD/CD drive with a Vista install disc - but no luck. Any advice?

At this point the issue could be several thing. The problem could be with the motherboard or the memory. Even a problem with the hard drive should cause the problem.

The first question I have for you is that you stated that you tried to boot from the VISTA CD. So did you actually get to the option to boot from or did you just put the disk in the drive to see if it would boot. Also did it go back to the HP screen.

The next thing to check to see if there is any of the system lights on and/or flashing. With notebook computers these are used as diagonisic light to help show where problems are with the notebook.

I installed xp as 2nd os with vista and now neithe of them works right--How can I take xp off and reload vista--I do not get a vista cd with my computer


You need to call your manufacturer and order a vista cd. Then you need to clear your hardrive using the partitioner provided with your vista cd. After that just follow the installation procedure

Vista & xp service pack2 sinultaneously.


Not both. If you have the Vista recovery, go ahead and load it first, then load the XP by creating a new partition on your harddrive. Now you have a dual boot machine, and will need the XP device drivers. Not sure if you have them or not, so here is a place to get them.

Low disk space recovery D


Option 1: Vista itself requiers a large amount of memmory, consider switching to a less demanding operating system like Windows XP, If you prefer the Vista look you can get themes that make Windows XP look like vista (Remember: you will need to backup files which you wish to keep).

Option 2: Insert you vista disk and follow on screen instructions to modify which vista components you want on your computer or use the add/remove windows components wizard on you computer, you may find there are parts of vista you do not require.

Option 3: Continue what you have already started.

Ram on the HP 530


Yes a 512 or RAM can run a Vista system but it will be much slower so if you want to be able to use the Vista systme to the fulless better if you upgrade the RAM of your computer to atleast 1 GIG of RAM but 2GIG will be much better so Vista will work smoothly....
