hi I'm working on a friend's HP pavilion but cant seem to come up with the right combination of buttons to get me into CMOS. And while I'm here the problem with the machine is that it will recognize format and partition the HD but it wont let XP install on it. Same problem with a diff drive in it too, I'm bout to throw the whole thing out the window. any help would be appreciated thanks

Often it's the F1 key. Press it right after the splash screen if there is one. What happens when you try to install XP and how did you format the hard drive. Are you installing using a full XP CD or a recovery disc?
