... save all of your wanted data onto other media, loves letters, pic's etc

... try tapping <F9> key @ bootup to evoke recovery

... if it exists it should wipe your drive to factory condition with the correct serial intact..... but ALL other data unsaved love letters will be toast!

"I cant install xp setup like as my new laptop."

Does that mean you are using a WinXP CD that didn't come with that laptop?

Is there an XP COA key affixed to the bottom of your laptop?

It's possible that it may not be genuine

Are you running other MS products, like MS Office?
