Having problems with your HP 530 Notebook PC ?

My hp530 laptop shows blue screen then it restarts when i try to install win xp it tells me that setup did not detect harddisk

Answers :

Hi, if you are using a SATA drive there maybe a setting in your bios to let the laptop know which drive you are using.(or you may need third party software from the drive manufacturer) if you are using an IDE drive i would check it integrity first by scanning or use a known good drive to test.Also try removing and reseating your ram.
