    i have the same computer and the same problem, it only reboots itself when i try to open a cd.... the only thing i can assume as to i have checked and recheck everything i can think of is that just maybe the power supply is overloading,, if anyone has this same problem please let me know if you figure it out. thanks

Windows does not boot up unless i have system disc i have reinstalled xp but it stops and says boot from cd put in system disc xp everytime i try to start it up then it will start i take out the disc and...

Have you let the machine complete the install? There are a couple of reboots with the disk installed. Don't press any buttons during the reboot the disk will transfer to the harddrive when appropriate.

You also may have a corrupt boot record. Next time try booting from the CD. When the system comes up, select recovery console (R). When you are asked for a system to login, press enter. Enter the administrator's password if asked. At the prompt, "c:\windows>", type fixmbr.

INstall the hard drive, if the hard drive came with a cd, put the cd in the drive and boot the laptop. When you see it say "boot from cd hit any key" do so and follow the prompts. This software will "initialize" the disc and install for the first time. Once the disc is "officially" installed take the hard drive disc out of the drive and replace it with Operating Disc. Reboot the machine and again look for the "Boot from CD Hit any Key" hit any key and let the system load windows. You only have to hit the key one time when it says "hit any key" even if during the windows install, the system may reboot but it still may need the disc in the drive, if you see the heading "boot from cd hit any key" dont hit any key any more....just let windows finish loading. When windows finally reboots, sometimes up to three times, then you can take the disc out of the drive or take it out if the operating system instructs you to. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair

How to format and install windows xp to presario c700?

First things first - you are aware that formatting will lose ALL information on your pc (including possibly some of your drivers) Make back up copies of everything you will need including your driver files. Also (sorry don't have time to look up the spec of your particular computer) are you sure that your computer has a processor/memory to cope with XP.

Assuming you have the disk to install and not a restore disk or an update disk. All you need to do is switch computer on, put cd in the drawer, shut down and reboot. The disk should automatically run. Follow the on screen prompts (quick format is normally fine) delete/create any partitions you want and basically leave it to it's own devices. At one stage it will appear to shut down but reboots itself. You WILL HAVE TO HAVE A KEY (the numbers to verify your disc). Eventually your screen will look kind of normal and you will be told what stage your install is at. Again follow on screen prompts.

It's not difficult to do but If your not at all sure about what you are doing be very wary
