Now forgive me skrillek but which hard drive are we talking about the drive from your machine to her machine or her drive to your machine??

IF you are using two different OS's then of course the receiving machine will not work.

Hmm mate you have got me there the only way that I can think that could happen is if the XP was originally on your machine as the XP OS (if OEM) would be tied to that board

Just out of interest can you get into the BIOS on your sisters machine?

The broken laptop is xp and my working pc is windows 7, I took the hdd out of the broken laptop and formated it on my working pc. Then installed xp on the laptops hdd on my pc. Then I ran the laptop hdd on my pc and it works, I then put it in the laptop and it still doesn't work

I could be wrong here but I think the HDD should be in the laptop when you install the OS for it to work on the laptop. What was the initial problem with it that required a new install?

Hmm Boozad I am thinking what copy of XP is involved here an OEM in which case it is tied to the laptop board and if it is a retail (very rare animal) how many times has it been usd?? To be honest if the XP is retail and has only been used once it should install on that drive if it is the only one hooked up. Therefore it is going to be tied to that other board so what happens when the drive is returned to the laptop and even if it works is it going to work for very long??

I am going to ask anyway but is this laptop really worth it? and not forgetting the end of support for XP is just around the corner

Everybody seemed to avoid this question, and maybe it was the right thing to do, but I want to make sure everything is checked out: did you try booting into safe mode?
As other people said above, you might just need to send it to a service so they can install the XP that is tied to it, but as far as I know, when that is involved, there usually is a partition on the HDD from where you can fresh install the OS (at least that's how it goes for w8 being tied to the board, as my laptop is, for some reason -.-)
