I would not post your ip address to either of these online. someone with a small amount of routing skill could cause some damage with that info. just saying. i have no answer to you question just trying to help you otherwise.

HP Office... | Answered 13 hours ago


well that is so easy to answer,
first off you are not using real HP disks are you.
sure. its old Blue Microsoft disks right,
and when you do that wrong, you get no HP chip drivers and lost more missing, even top row, fn keys dead, not just audio.

XP is a dead OS. for 3 years now, zero updates and is now a virus magnet extream.
nx9010 note book shuts down, all 3 os install different. !
old XP runs a very old and very DUMBB seteup.,exe
the newer OS run WINPE for setup.exe. vastly better and boots and loads the OS totally different.

Xp can be installed many ways, not one stated by you.

1-insert, HP install disk in CDROM drive and click, setup.exe running in a XP explorer window, live install
2: boot to HP install disk.
3: boot and hit F11 run HPs on HDD restore partition.
4: same as a above 1, or 2, but is Micro soft disk (wrong, you did it wrong, do not use mS disk) if must ask how, its a long long long story. ive done it all ways, 1000s of time. now since first PC.s ever.



if booting to XP , right or wrong CD. (its a CD right<)> or a stick
that too not stated,
it boots and you answer questions, then it starts copying
if it stalls that means, the CD is bad.
or PC is bad, you do know there are 3million transistors here to fail right? bad HDD, bad Mobo, and more. lots more
even the CPU can over heat and will shut down.

Personally I avoid all CD nows, they sux'd then and do now more.
make and ISO of your CD, (ask its easy and free)
then burn the ISO to a 4GB or bigger uSB memory stick using free RUFUS app.
boot to stick. on my HP hit F9 and pick Udisk USB. boot
bingo no more CD errors ever again.

i bet bad CD. seen it vast times, endless , but not today. too savvy now. to mess with any CD, if you copy it to ISO and get CRC errors
its a bad CD.
end pain.

the problem with real old PC most cant boot to USB
or must be BIOS flashed updated to get that.
ill now ill try to learn what yours can or can not do.
lacking ,what is there now.
but id do this first. go in to BIOS BOOT PAGE

What is the default boot order? The default boot order settings for the computer are configured in the factory. The default boot order for HP notebook PCs is listed below.
  1. Floppy disk drive
  2. Optical drive (DVD, CD-ROM)
  3. Hard drive
  4. USB device (see this?) bingo, can boot and install any OS here
  5. Network adapter

hmm seems a lil odd it appears that maybe your internal computer hard drive is failing or that its not properly connected if its happened recently with no internal computer changes then its definitely the hard drive failing on you
