1) Service Pack 2 is a service pack, not an operating system - you first have to install XP itself, which you'll have to buy.

2) It's entirely possible that there are no XP drivers available for one or more components of your laptop, so XP won't install on it. (Linux probably will.)

Unistalling Microsoft VISTA HOME Edition


Are booting the laptop from the XP CD? If so it should just give you an option to delete partitions then format and install starts. If you try installing XP after Vista has loaded it wont let you as XP is older. Cheers from Scott

Webcam driver probably did not install properly.

Go to Device Manager. Unistall the Webcam. Reboot.

Vista will scan for new hardware, locate the Webcam and reinstall the driver.

Good luck.

Presario f700 drivers


You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to hp.com and search for the model of your Laptop.

Inferior security for FIXYA, 6YA, Verticalscope, and Torstar web sites reported repeatedly due to cybercriminals like the Indian spammers who have taken charge here. Inferior security at FIXYA and 6YA leave your financial and bankcard data and personal passwords at risk of being sold by cybercriminals in India. Toronto-based VerticalScope Inc. says six of the community websites it administers were hacked last month in the latest of a recent series of data breaches affecting Canadian online user information. The company says in an emailed statement an “unauthorized party” gained access to community member data for six of its websites on Oct. 17 and 21 and some of the data was disclosed online. It says the data did not include credit card or banking information but did include usernames, email addresses, encrypted passwords, user identifications, registration dates and IP addresses for websites including DIYchatroom com, PBnation com, HysterSisters com, ToyotaNation com, JeepForum com and WatchUSeek com. Alex Holden of Hold Security, LLC, says his American cybersecurity firm was able to intercept hackers’ attempts to sell data stolen from VerticalScope and tracked down screenshots containing current secure information to confirm the breaches had taken place. He says the attack was “rather sophomoric” and its success doesn’t reflect well on VerticalScope’s cybersecurity readiness, adding it’s unclear how many people had their confidential information stolen. VerticalScope, which is majority owned by TorStar Corp., says it has caused all of the passwords on the sites to expire and has notified affected users. It says the breach has been reported to the federal Privacy Commissioner, Toronto Police Service and the RCMP cybercrime unit. About 8,000 Canadians had personal information and, in some cases, credit card information, exposed in the massive Equifax cyberbreach that occurred in July but wasn’t reported until September.
