Have you check your bios set up to make first boot as cd room?
press delete or f2 button when the computer start go to booting selection and set first boot to cd room, if you have done this way and still won't boot try to change your cd room or windows cd, it seems your cd room or windows bootable cd is bad, and also try to clear your memory (ram) by erasing your ram from dust by using a pencil eraser, to fix your windows problem without re-install your windows you can try to put your hard drive (which contains windows xp) in another usable computer, make it as secondary master or slave (to do it you can replace cdroom and change with your hard drive) ,after that you can check on my computer tab if your hard drive has detected. check in what drive is your hard drive (for example d)then go to run type cmd, type your drive which contains an error windows (D:) after the path was located to D: (your hard drive that contains an error windows) type chkdsk /f /r then enter, wait till the process done, it will take about 20-30 minuets and it will repair your windows

Can i install windows xp on Laptop Hp 630


I'm quite sure you can install windows xp on your current laptop, but computer specifications do matter. Anyway, this is how you would do it:

1) Insert the windows xp cd or dvd and restart your computer.

2) When starting up your computer, you should get a screen with the manufactorer's logo. There usually is a bit of text in one of the corners of the screen that sais which key to press to go to the "boot menu" (unless you're on an apple computer at the moment, in that case google for "Boot Camp windows xp".)



3) Press this key while you see the screen mentioned above, and you will see a menu in which you'll have to navigate with the arrow keys.

4) As this is different for various manufacturers, look around in the menu a bit until you find something along the lines of "boot from cd"

5) Make sure you activate this, and restart your computer.

6) Now your computer should start up from the windows xp CD.

7) Follow the instructions of the installation.

8) Repeat step 2-4 and deactivate the boot from cd.

9) Done. You should have windows xp installed on your machine.

How To Repair Your Operating System


A Repair Install will replace the system files with the files on the XP CD used for the Repair Install. It will leave your applications and settings intact, but Windows updates will need to be reapplied. Here is how to run an OS Repair using the Operating System CD in XP, Vista, or 7:


Windows XP

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below:

3. Press ENTER to start the Windows Setup.
4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup.
6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.


Windows Vista

If you have a Windows Vista installation disc, you need to restart (boot) your computer using the installation disc. If you do not restart your computer from the disc, the option to repair your computer will not appear.

Here is a step by step picture guide.

If you have a Windows Vista installation disc:

1. Insert the installation disc.
2. Restart your computer.
3. Click the Start button, click the arrow next to the Lock button, and then click Restart.
4. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.


Windows 7

1. If a startup problem is detected, Startup Repair will start automatically and try to fix the problem.
2. If the problem is severe enough that Startup Repair doesn't start on its own and you can't access the System Recovery Options menu on your computer's hard disk, you can get to the menu and start Startup Repair by using the Windows installation disc or a system repair disc that you created earlier.

How do i fix error ofoo:0244 and ofoo:1a44 (msg block 16867582, 46028639 & 111595250), please? I get these codes when I start my pc


Hi,
I would suggest you first try the Start Up Repair for Windows XP.
1. Just insert the Windows XP installation CD that came with your computer then restart the computer.
2. You should get a prompt to start the computer from the CD drive, if not you need to enter BIOS settings to set the start/boot up mode so that your computer will boot up first from the CD.
3. When you see the blue screen, let the computer load everything and when it's done choose "To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER"4. Press F8 to agree to the License Agreement 5. Choose "To repair the selected Windows XP installation, press R"
Windows will then start the repair process. Do not worry all your data and settings will be retained.

If above solution does not work then,Use Recovery Console.
1. Just insert the Windows XP installation CD that came with your computer then restart the computer.2. You should get a prompt to start the computer from the CD drive, if not you need to enter BIOS settings to set the start/boot up mode so that your computer will boot up first from the CD.3. When you see the blue screen, let the computer load everything and when it's done press R to repair Windows XP using Recovery Console4. On the Recovery Console, choose the installation you would like to log on to (for example c:\Windows)5. Type Chkdsk /p /r on the Recovery Console and your computer will begin to check the hard drive for error and recover data.6. Once Chkdsk is completed, type exit then press Enter. Computer should restart. No need to boot from CD at this point. You can take out the Windows installation CD.

Hope this helps. Glad to be of service.

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.
