How to install XP in CQ42 177TX since I've already formatted hdd to 1 part and wanna install XP.. it goes blue screen when entering windows setup.. just can install windows 7 only.. what should I do ??? [actually, I'm doing this because I want to check the problem between my graphic card and Operating System since I can't view 2 videos streams at one time and can't view .mkv video at Windows Media Player]

I think blue screen could be due to a hard disk problem or faulty RAM.

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.

Actually if you had a problem with your video card, you couldn't see anything at all. You're going the long way around. You need a special player to view MKV files or you can download the codec pack for windows media player from here.
