    insert Windows xp disk & restart your laptop, then press any key to boot from cd to start the installation.If this one does'nt works then by inserting bootable cd & executing command format c:/q will format your previous installation.

    Yes, and if after format Windows still complains in anyway shape or form, than your system if not working at 100%. To ensure the best experience of using Windows (that sounded like Microsoft sales rep speech, sorry about that), Windows OS will only on system that it judges wordy to run on. Terrible choice of word, isn't it :) Sorry, again.
    But yea, that statement is true.

    if you are getting a blue screen before windows XP can load from the CD then you have a hardware fault it seems.

    although your a little hard to understand. Have you booted from the CD or just try to auto-run the CD when you have booted windows ?

    is the XP CD a real copy, i.e. you didnt burn it to a DVD and are trying from that, was thinking maybe corrupt DVD maybe.

    only other couple of things i can tihnk of is to remove the HDD and insert it into another PC to format it.

    or

    boot from an external DVD drive to see if that works

    you sure its a BSOD you're getting and not the windows xp installation page which is also blue when it starts up ?

    if it is a BSOD the you should be getting an error code on the page if you post that code here we might be able to help more as the code is specific to the error

    well since it's already toasted.. can boot xp off the cd and select recovery console- type fixboot c: at the command prompt

    then restart and format/install like normal..
