I find your post difficult to understand.

What settings are you looking for in the BIOS?

The Windows XP CD contains enough drivers to get your system up and running -- any others you need you can install afterwards.

it does not fill the screen, looks like a small screen in the screen, and it is also so in the bios. 15-inch type, but only a small box in the middle is used. 800x600.

under Windows crash during installation,

The drivers for VGA do not work:
fsvga.sys have a problem with the system and cancel the installation.

fsvga.sys = fullscreen runs.

I understand more now, thank you.

FSVGA.SYS is on the Windows XP installation CD and is installed automatically during Windows Setup.

You won't find any settings for it in the BIOS because that is mainly for detecting and configuring hardware, not for device drivers.

You may have a damaged Windows XP CD, or broken hardware inside your laptop. You should have it checked out at a repair shop.

Your laptop has a 16:10 wide screen format. I would expect the screen to not be full in the BIOS/ POST screens. That is normal.

You need to download and install all the drivers for that laptop and WinXP. Go to the link below for help with that.
