TAKE THE CD-ROM DRIVE OUT AND REBOOT THE SYSTEM. WHEN THE SYSTEM ARRIVES AT THE GUI SCREEN, GO TO SETTINGS FROM THE START MENU, MAKE SURE THAT IT HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE SYSTEM DEVICE MANAGER OR AT LEASE DISABLED. REBOOT SYSTEM AGAIN. CHECK MY COMPUTER ICON TO SEE IF IT IS MISSING. IF IT IS GOOD. NEXT PHYSICALLY REINSTALL THE DEVICE AS THOUGH IT IS A NEW DEVICE. REBOOT THE SYSTEM LET THE OPERATING SYSTEM DETECT THE DEVICE AND INSTALL THE SOFTWARE FOR IT. GO BACK TO MY COMPUTER AND SEE IF IT IS BACK IN THE CONFIGURATION. IF IT IS GOOD. OPEN CD ROM DRIVE PLACE THE DISK YOU ARE TRYING TO READ AND SEE IF IT DOES. IF IT DOES GOOD IF IT DOESN'T THEN YOU CD ROM IS BAD AND YOU NEED TO REPLACE IT.

Computer wont reboot


The issue is due to presents of earlier operating system files which are avoiding you to reinstall the os.
At this point I recommend you to clean the hard disk and then try for fresh installation. However, I am providing you the steps below:
Perform the steps provided in the below web site and then perform the Reinstall process

http://killdisk.com/downloadfree.htm

NOTE: The URL above will take you to a non HP Web site. HP does
not control and is not responsible for information outside
of the HP Web site.


After performing the complete format of Hard Drive, Reinstall the Windows XP.

To reinstall the operating system, follow the steps below:

1. Ensure that the CD-ROM is connected to the notebook.
2. Turn on the notebook.
3. Immediately insert the operating system CD into the CD drive.
4. Press and hold the Power button for 5 seconds to turn off the notebook.
5. Press the Power button again to start the notebook.
6. Press Esc key to boot from the CD when HP logo appears. Choose the first boot device as CD ROM and then click enter. The Welcome to Setup screen is displayed.
7. Press ENTER to continue. A Licensing Agreement screen is displayed.
8. Press F8 to accept the agreement and continue. The Setup window is displayed.
9. Press ESC to continue installing a fresh copy of the operating system without repairing.
10. Press ENTER to setup the operating system.
11. Press C to continue using this partition.
12. Select "Format the partition using the NTFS file system (Quick)", and then press ENTER. A caution message stating that formatting this drive will delete all current files, is displayed.
13. Press F to format the drive. The reinstallation process begins and may take several minutes to complete. Your Notebook will restart into Windows after the process is complete.

NOTE: When prompted for the product key, refer to the Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity located on the bottom of your
notebook.

I hope this information helps you. Please reply if I can help you further.

Boot problem


Did it boot at any time you had it?
How far does it boot from the hard drive now?
Are there any messages?
Are you trying to boot from the usb cd rom with an xp disk?
If you can do that, personally I would just reinstall windows.
Hard Disk removal is not a difficult process on a laptop. You can connect it to a pc with one of those external boxes for 2.5"drives, cheaply available. XP will not boot if you put an installed copy on another computer (unless it is exactly the same).
Worst case (a process I once had to do with a tablet pc) is to make a small bootable partition on that hard drive, put the xp install files on that partition, then put it back in the laptop and install windows from the small partition onto the rest. There are more detailed instructions how to do this, if you go that route.
If you take parts out of your laptop, make sure you don't give it a static shock by touching something grounded.
