Restoring Winxp - Can't finish installation.

  1. I had a problem: X024 Stop Error. I could not figure out how to fix it so I used the Compaq restore disks which formatted the HD and reloaded XP. So I am doing fine and I get to the area where it asks to register so I continued on through the registration. Microsoft could not be contacted and HP had a web page that you can not close. If I shut off the computer and restart, it just goes back to the same thing. Any ideas on how I can get out of this ridiculous situation??

    You have to register Windows XP before you move on (it usually can be done via internet) but, you might have to call Microsoft.
