You are getting blue screen because of compatibility issue. go into bios (press f2 on start up) and change from sata mode to ahci compatibility mode 'probably in the advanced section). you should then be able to boot from xp cd. remember to get your xp drivers from the hp website.

Hi,

You cannot downgrade Windows 7 from Windows XP by not reformatting the hard drive. You need to Remove Windows 7 first, before installing Windows XP Operating System. In order to use the Windows XP CD to fully reformat the Hard drive, follow the steps on the link below.

How do I restore my toshiba laptop to factory settings without the disk?


If you do not have a Recovery disk, you may be able to purchase one from Toshiba.
The other way is to format your hard drive and re-install Windows. Use a Windows installation CD; it must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop.
You will also need to download the device drivers for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB support site, make sure the download the correct XP or Vista version of the device drivers which matches the Windows version you are installing.

You do not need to format the hard drive, you can restore the computer to the factory setting factory settings means your computer would go to a state as it was on very first day of purchase.
If you want to restore the computer to factory settings and you have window vista, start tapping F11 at the startup of your computer and your computer would be restored to factory settings. If you have window XP use F10 at the startup.
However, if you want to format the hard drive, you can format it and you have already downloaded all of the drivers.After formatting, first install network drivers and then remaining others. Also, I would suggest you not to install the drivers for BIOS.
