Hey, i seem to have a very big problem with my laptop. I have down graded it from the Original Vista operating system to Windows XP. As i think it is a better operating system for the computer.

The problem im having is when ever i turn it on it will load my POST but wont boot into windows, i tried loading into safe mode but it crashes and resets and when i try to reformat the computer tells me It can not find any HardDisks installed when obviously i know there is .

Im guessing its a big nasty virus or something as my other deskptop got the same problem but i was able to reformat it, strange.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Added note: The laptop worked for 6 months previously on XP so the downgrade is not the cause of the problem.

Any questions please ask.

hi,
go to the BIOS, in the boot menu, change ACPI to IDE.
