Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Hi, i have recently got a hp pavillion dv5000 laptop given to me, unfortunately it has no operating system on it, i have an xp disc to install but when i try it gets to the point where it says press any key to boot from cd, so i press a key, then it stays on that screen for a few mins then comes up with some big *** error message, can anyone help with this problem or maybe give me some advise as to how i can fix this? any advise would be much apreciated...


Answers :

Yeah, hp sucks because it takes a special disc, if you want a good free operating system, try linux, its free and kicks A$$, you can order a free ubuntu cd at https://shipit.ubuntu.com/

you may not liker linux at first, but give it a while and you will soon love it, and there are many different "flavors" of linux, try it out
It sucks but HP laptops can only be installed or reinstalled with a HP recovery disk. If you try to use anything else you get a black screen or a error message.
