Hard Drive Self Test Error #1 - 07 Fail & Reinstalling Windows XP
This problem started with a bad driver file from my printer. I was able to get my desktop to work, but it has crashed my laptop.
I have been trying to reinstall operating system (XP) on my Compaq Presario V2000. I deleted the partition and did the slower version of the formatting the partition. It game back with an error message that there was a partmgr.sys driver error. It suggested to disable the BIOS memory options by starting up in safe mode. I had no idea how to do that, but when I was there ran the hard drive self test and came up with test error #1 - 07 fail. I also reloaded the setup defaults for the PhoenixBIOS.
How do I fix this problem (the self-test and ultimately getting my computer to accept the reinstall)?
