Hi, I have an HP slimline and it was working fine until a program i installed drivers was not compatible with vista so i decided i was gonna just use xp then later upgrade to windows 7. My slimline didn't come with any software to reinstall or anything so i used my dell reinstallation cd and installed a fresh copy of xp inside my driver. I delted two partions. Factory image and the C drive [main one].
So after i install i get the Blue screen of death. So i keep on getting it, and i reinstall it again and i still get the blue screen. i dont know what the problem is . can someone help me?
I I had vista home premium on my hp slim line i bought it refurbished so no software came with it.
A couple of weeks ago my brother installed this software that was completely uncompatible. [Giga Studio 3]
it was slowing down my computer so i decided i was gonna install a fresh copy of xp into my computer.
The install works fine but while im browsing my computer it BLUE SCREEN OF Death Me.
When i installed it i had my MBOX usb audio device hooked up and my portable hardrive hooked up.
You are supposed to create your own recovery media... in fact you should have been prompted to do so. That is the FIRST thing you should do when you pull the computer out of the box and see that there is no recovery media with it. There should also be a restore partition that you could use to restore (there's a prompt to push F10 for system recovery at the POST screen).
Ahhh... now I see from your post that you deleted the factory restore partition.
