My original Laptop HDD failed. I have replaced it and not being familiar with installation, made a mistake on using original XP Pro CD. Cannot access to install.I think I made an error on F2 and selected incorrect boot sequence. I get no response from HDD to get started again to format HDD. Have Imade a total and final error.Is there anyway back to reboot?

Hi all, Thanks for your contributions to my problem. All instructions were carried out as suggested. Absolutely no response what ever. I needed more professional advice; apparently the graphics chip on the mother board was causing the problem. Too expensive, I wanted it for my granddaughter and her son, he has just started school and they communicate with the school via e mail. Now left with a new HDD.

Thank you all once again
