Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

1 Answer

Windows XP will not load.

I was trying to update Windows XP & ended up installing Windows XP Home & Windows XP Pro on the same partition. Now I can't get past an error page. I can get to the dos prompt but I can't figure out what to do from there. Can I uninstall XP & fix it. If so, how do I uninstall?

Ok. If you do not want to backup your files/documents, you can simply access a Windows XP CD from the internet, by visiting this link. When you get a copy, simply put it in the drive and boot up the pc. Then follow the instructions on the immediate screen, which is either press DEL, F8 or Esc. Then, look for a boot option and change it to CD/DVD Drive....

Then, let the CD boot and let it run through and follow the onscreen instructions. Then, you will have a so called brand new pc/installation. Be sure to format your drive when it asks...

If you want to back up some of your stuff, go to a flea market and look for a computer place...

They should have small hard drives.

Anything above 10GB should be good, unless you want a large drive for yourself.

Just install a version of windows, and copy all the stuff you want to back up, then you can format your regular with the version of Windows you downloaded...

If you need anything else, let me know...

If the link i gave earlier does not work, try this one:

I recommend you do a clean reinstall XP Pro using the Windows XP Pro installation CD. Delete all the partitions and create a new partition.

This is generally how your format the hard disk and install Windows.
First you need a Windows XP or Windows Vista installation CD and the product installation code, which is printed on the Windows label on the bottom of your laptop.
Boot up with the Windows installation CD start and follow the instructions to install Windows.
Next Delete the existing Windows partition.
Next Create a new partition.
Next format this new partition - Format the partition in NTFS not a quick format. This will prepare the Windows for a clean install.
Next create a User(name) and company name (normally Home is all you need).
Further into the installation, you will be required to put in the Installation code.

During the final stages of installation you need to create an User or Users that will use this computer.

When you finished installing Windows you need to install the laptop's device drivers. You need to use a computer with Internet access to download these drivers from the laptop manufacturer's WEB site and install these drivers on your laptop.
Next connect a LAN cable to the LAN port from your computer to your DSL or cable modem and you need to Activate the Windows installation on the Microsoft WEB site.
Next up need to upgrade Windows from the Microsoft WEB site including Service pack.
Next you need to install your programs

You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Reloaded xp pro on dell lap and then the blue screen of death and now nothing except error loading os Please if you can help I know very little about computers so bear with me...


Just about every prebuilt system. Dell, HP, Compaq, e-Machine ECT.
Place a small hidden partition at the front of the primary hard disk drive.
This partition is about 2MB to 4MB in size. Within this hidden partition are drivers. If you need to reinstall your operating system you will need to use the manufactures restore CD's. On the other hand if you are trying to install another operating system like, (An upgrade or a full install of another OS), though it may appear windows is installing it is not. Hence the blue screen. Once you delete this hidden partition you can install or reinstall the operating system of your choice. There are two ways around this. 1.) Download and run a program called, Darik's Boot and Nuke for CD and DVD 1.07. This allows you to create a bootable CD or bootable floppy disk. Download link below;
http://download.cnet.com/Darik-s-Boot-and-Nuke-for-CD-and-DVD/3000-2094_4-10151762.html
This program will remove/delete everything including hidden partitions.
This program has been updated so you can remove the hidden partition without harming your current windows.
Once completed you will be free to install any operating system.
2.) Run Darik's Boot and Nuke to remove the small hiddion partiton.
Boot to your windows CD. Carefully read the screens that come up. If you have personal data in your operating system and don't want to loose that data than follow these instruction. During the install of windows, you will come to a screen where windows will show you the partitions on your drive. If your drive has a min of 50 to 60GB of free space you can create another partition within the free space and install windows fresh. Once windowsw has been installed and updated you can now copy and past all your personal data to the new windows.
When finished, click Sart, Run and type " diskmgmt.msc " and click ok. In windows disk managment you can now delete your old windows partition. If you need help using diskmgmt.msc just open the link below;

Removing partial install of 2nd os


You should be able to do a SYSTEM RESTORE to a point before the XP Pro installation.

Start the machine and start tapping the F8 key until the boot menu is displayed. Use the arrow keys to highlight SAFE MODE and press enter. If you are given a menu to choose which Windows to boot into, choose the Home edition. Windows will load with the minimum drivers. Your screen display will be 640 X 480 and the icons will be large. You will eventually see a window advising you that you are in safe mode, click OK or NO. Click NO. That should open The System Restore function. Choose to restore the system to an earlier date. A calendar with be displayed. The BOLD dates are the ones that you can restore to. Choose a date that was before the date you tried to install XP Pro. Follow the prompts and the restore process will run and reboot your computer. Following the reboot, the installation will complete and Windows will open.

If you have installed a service packs or updates after the restore date you will need to install them again.

Good Luck! and please let me know how this works out for you.

Hal.dll corrupt or missing


Does the Hard Drive have Windows on it? If not, install the Windows Me Floppy disk. Select Run With CD-ROM Support or RUN With Out CD-ROM Support. Any of the two. After it gets done loading. type the following. fdisk

It will ask you do you want to use extended Hard Drive use? Y/N
Press Y. Then you'll get a screen with 4 options. If Windows is on there type 4. And see what it says on your hard Drive.

If you wish to erase Windows and reinstall it, click 3. to delete the partition and it will ask to restart the computer.

Restart the computer and reload to the fidisk screen and press 1. and it Will install a partition "Not Windows" After the Partition is installed restart the Computer and remove the floppy. If it comes up saying No Operating System found. Then the Hard Drive is set to install Windows.
The cheapest Windows XP you can buy Is Home Edition for $99.98, witch some stores still sell, like BestBuy.

If you want to send the Laptop to me I can install Windows on it for you. I have Windows 95,98,ME,2000 Pro, XP Home, XP Pro and Vista Home Basic. Thats if you don't want to spend money on Windows. Just pay for shipping.

Cannot Re-install Windows from Recovery DVD's ACER 5610-4179


Hello,
Your recovery disks must be scratched or files are corrupted. Since you have successfully installed XP Pro, why not stay with it as it's better than Home?
If you have a restoration partition on your C drive, you may be able to revert to your original configuration from it. And if you insist on XP Home or only have a valid product key for home, you can borrow a disk from anyone who has a good copy.
I hope this helps.
