Hello,

i have got a blue screen when installing windows XP to my laptop. Read the other posts suggest to go to bios to change the compatible hard drive but my Bios is very basic i cannot find anywhere to set the compatibility.

Please help

Can you boot into dos and run chkdsk? Make certain your HDD media is not correupted.

Thanks
