|It turns on and it'll stay on for about 60 seconds when I try booting a CD, if i go into Setup "bios" it'll stay on and not cut off. |
like for instance it'll load windows XP setup and will stay on until it gets right to the part that says setup is going boot windows which is just where all the drivers have loaded my XP Cd is patched for installing on it's Sata Hard Drive.
The computer isn't that old it was design or well originally came with Windows Vista but I didn't buy it from HP so there is no warranty. I just don't think it is over heating "I'll check on that to see for sure" but I think maybe it is a compatibility issue or some such that prevents it from installing XP, and I don't own a Copy of Vista, I got it from Ebay but the guy said it had been fully tested under Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit with a master drive and worked but I just have Win7 Pro x64, and WinXP Pro x86.
I still have time to send it back for my money but really I don't want to, I'd rather get it to work.
Also it's only a 32bit PC and doesn't support 64bit OSes
