    Welcome to Free PC Help Aaza

    When you tried to install XP did you set the PC to boot from the cdrom?

    Provide more information please.

        Have a look at this link here Aaza ok, this is the post screen and if you press Del you can get into the bios to change the boot order.

        Your post screen may be different and say press F2 for example.

            Try resetting the bios. There are two ways to do so, but in your case it would be easier to remove the motherboard battery. Unplug the computer and carefully take out the "button" battery on the motherboard. Put it back in after 30 minutes, plug in the computer and turn it on. As soon as you see the keyboard lights flash, start tapping F2 or DEL. This should get you into the bios (setup).

            From the bios, restore the defaults then change the boot order to cd first then hard drive. Pop in your XP cd, save the bios changes and exit. The computer should now boot to the cd and start XP's setup.

              ive taken out the the battery,for half an hour and replaced it again but the same thing happens.
              ive pressed f2 to try to get into bios,but i only get a long beeping sound.
              i have some more info of what the problem could be i remember when i got the pc,i noticed the fan wire wasnt connected i recconected it after the (pc wasnt on for long) could this mean i have damaged the proccessor?

                Hi
                How many beeps is it. For eg. 1 short 3 long.
                Is the CPU fan working?
                Is there any error messages on the screen.
                Also try a new Cmos battery(the one you took out for 30min).

                  If you're using a USB keyboard, try using a PS-2 one instead.
