    I suggest to get in touch with HP. I also don't fully understand what the problem is.

    Unhappy

    hp comes with a recovery drive on the computer. u are then supposed to download it onto a disk to create a restore disc. this way if my comp evr crashes i can restore all the original software on it. mynes jacked up and its giving me an error and telling me to abort the process whenevr i try and i think i lost the first 2 i made. i need new ones. some one posted the same problemo earlier and was able to get some, but his or her comp wasnt xp. mine is an hp computer with windows xp as its os. if i can get those disks u have no idea how happy i would be. my comp is fudging up on me and its loaded with so much stuff. my sis had the same problem and rebooted and now hers is like really good. if only i had known all the stuff about adware and spyware and viruses and etc. i know now. urg. sry took me so long to reply my comp's been acting stoopid. couldnt get on the internet.

    Well, If A Guy/Girl Didn't Mind The Not Having All The HP Software That
    Came With The Computer And Had An XP Home CD Key On The Back Of
    The Computer They Could Get A Hold Of An XP Home Install Cd Then
    Install It That Way. If The XP Home Disk Didn't Have The Drivers You
    Needed You Could Download Them From The HP Site. A Suggestion
    If You Like The Way That Sounds You Should Get A 98 boot Disk
    Or Installation CD And Boot Into Dos And Run A Program Called Fdisk.
    Use It To Get Rid Of Both Partitions And Then Create A FAt32 Partition
    With 100% Of Your Unused Space. And Then Format After You Restart
    The Computer With That Same Boot Disc. Then When You Install XP
    Don't Let It Convert The Harddrive To NTFS Tell It To Leave The
    Current Alone As It Is As A Fat32. Fat32 Is FAster Anyway. The
    Only Problem IS That It Can't Store Files Over 4 Gig. Not A Big
    Deal Unless Your Saving DVD Files To Your Harddrive. And If That
    Was The Case You Could Set Up Two Partitions Anyway The Fat32
    For You OS And Program Files And The NTFS As You Workspace
    Or Storage Partition. The Second Partition Comes In Handy So
    That If You Ever Have To Start Fresh Again You Don't Need To
    Lose All You Files Again. Like MP3's.
    One More Thing I Think This Is In The Wrong Section. This Is
    For win9x. But Oh Well.
