Hello everyone. I just a reinstall of XP home on my laptop. I then installed the drivers CD successfully. After that I updated everything and the computer required to be restarted. When it restarted, it it went to a BLACK screen with a white bar across the bottom and it never went to the HOME XP screen. So, I threw the reinstall disc in and it then went. Thoughts? Advice? Thanks!!!!

Since it's a laptop...that means that you have restore/recovery disks prepared by a manufacturer, not a Microsoft XP CD.

There is no set standard on how these function, with each system maker following its own path. Your system documentation and the system manufacturer's website should cover how these disks work, known problems, etc.

Edit: Advisors are not the only persons who try to make helpful suggestions/comments. There are many more forum members...who contribute daily...than there are advisors. The forum is open and that means that anyone can help...or try to help...someone who appears to be in need of such :thumbsup:.

How should one approach this?

So you havent installed them,

if so like hamluis said contact the manufacturers or the store you bought the laptops to see if you can get a new cd not much else you can do really.

So the first time you did the recovery and installed the drivers it didnt work

If so maybe the recovery did not complete properly, pc's make errors as well

Is the PC working fine then
