Unable to get windows xp to fully boot up - Compaq Presario 4090US (470016-303) PC Desktop

    Do you have the recovery disks? You need to replace some files that are corrupt or unreadable. The stuff you need will be in the packets that came with the computer. Or you can use your copy of XP. After the system is up you can make a recovery disk (a boot disk). On my machine there is also a way to bot in safe mode by pressing F12.

I am unable to install windows XP. is it possible to install windows XP along with the Windows 7 that is already installed........ suggest me asap


If you want to have both windows 7 and windows xp installed on your computer, it is advisable that you first install windows xp. You should allways install the oldest windows version first. To install windows XP on your computer you need the installation cd. Boot your computer with the Windows XP installation cd, maybe you have to enter bios to set cd to boot first. Let me now if you need more information.
