From what you are saying i would try installing on different hard drive, as it sounds like file corruption is playing a big part of your problems. If it isnt the hard drive then it may be one of your ram chips

Installing XP SP3 pro on my presario C700


Most likely you have a SATA drive which windows is not detecting. Restart the setup and press F6. You will need to use another system to download the SATA drivers and save to a disk. Then when prompted you can insert the disk. You can also upgrade to XP professional which will almost always recognize the SATA drives. Good Luck.

On March 6, 2008 Microsoft released Service Pack 3 (SP3) for Windows XP. Service Pack 3 contains all of the important Windows updates from previous service packs as well as additional updates that were released after Service Pack 2. To install Windows XP Service Pack 3 from the Internet on a home desktop computer use the Windows Update feature. CAUTION: If you have an HP Pavilion, HP Media Center or Compaq Presario desktop computer that has an AMD processor, your PC might encounter a startup problem after installing SP3 (or SP3 will not download from Windows Update). Before attempting to install SP3, install sp37394 - Microsoft Windows XP SP3 Upgrade Utility for systems with AMD processors . For more information, the following support articles from the Microsoft Web site can help: 322389 - How to obtain the latest Windows XP service pack (in English) 936929 - Release notes for Windows XP Service Pack 3 (in English) NOTE: One or more of the links above will take you outside the Hewlett-Packard Web site.

How can i install windows xp sp3 in compaq presario cq60-104tu.


Ok it must be one of this problems:

1) you had vista, you wanted xp for whatever reason. you are doing a fresh install using the service pack 3 disk. there is hardware combatiblity issues and must stay with vista. this is becoming more common with the life of xp coming to an end.

2) you had xp and are reinstalling and hardware has failed.

3) you had service pack 2 or before and are updating your service pack and there is some issue with hardware or software.
