Howdy and welcome to G2G:

When you say "boot from the disk" are you referring to the XP cd or a boot floppy??

Have you gone into BIOS to see what the boot options were set at??

The manual that came with the laptop should give you that info.. If not, most systems use the <delete> key during POST to get into BIOS..

Just watch the screen as it is booting.. it should tell you there what key to press to enter "setup" (BIOS) !!
