Every time I try to boot up to CD on my Presario V2000 it keeps trying to boot up to my lan, When not connected it goes to "Exititing PXE, but when it's plugged it it looks for media it can't find, regaurdless, I can't boot up to my XP home cd.
You need to go into bios by pressing F2 or delete at boot up. Once you are in setup you need to change the boot sequence to the cd drive as number 1 and the hard drive as number 2 then press F10 to save and exit. then reboot the computer and it will boot off the cd.
Hope this helps.

try to insteret you cd recovery from your laptop box...
if you cannot, restore your backed up data...
if you do not have any backed up data!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DANGEROUS,,, you will have to insert windows xp cd installiation then click the button that says Repair e.g F'' F;;
Have you tried to use a different browser to rule out IE (that has not been previously installed on PC)? Try Firefox (I prefer IE BTW), and if your internet starts working you know that it's your browser's. Also, you can check to make sure that there are no proxies setup in your IE. Click on Tools > Internet Options > Connection tab > LAN Settings (at the bottom) - once in LAN Settings, uncheck all the boxes.
If the boot priority in the BIOS setup screen is set to thr CD it
will open the cd door every time you boot looking for the BOOT cd.
It will not accept anything else, at that point except a boot cd since it hasn't found the operating system (windows) yet.
By "blue laptop" you mean "blue screen" DO a "Windows restore" or reinstall windows from the reinstall cd or Harddrive partision containing the restore files.
if you are trying to boot from a windows cd, the boot menu will be correct, but you need to press ENTER when prompted to boot from the windows cd, the fact that you have a dvd drive makes no difference, the only other problem maybe that if you are using vista the system cannot recognise the discs written format type
you cannot do this as the lan boot up refers to a workstation and server type setup where the operating system back up is saved on to a server incase of a system crash; which will not apply to your pc.
Well, you can install XP as long as you have a CD and your laptop has a COA with a key.
Hit delete, F2 or F10 to start the system in setup, change the order of boot devices to make the CD your primary boot device. Restart, boot into the CD and follow the prompts. After you complete your installation you can go to www.hp.com SUPPORT and DOWNLOADS and find whatever drivers you are missing. Take your time and you'll do fine.
