Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

HP Compaq Presario C5170 Desktop

I have an old computer I want to give away to my child's pre-school. I went to get on it and take off my very old stuff, but when attempting to log in, I had the problem of a forgotten password???

I thought there was a jumper on the mother board that can be moved to remove the password protection scheme, and I can't remember how to do it nor can I find an online manual. Compaq gave me the boot due to how old the PC is. What do you recommend as a solution whether it be a jumper or some other means to get around this problem???

Thank you Chuck

When is the best time to start your baby in daycare


Daycare and pre-school are different things in most countries. The former is just that: care only. The child is kept amused but not taught anything in particular. You can put a child in these as early as they will take it, but it isn't a good experience.

A good pre-school will have a program which teaches elementary motor skills like climbing and assembling things, paying attention, social skills like helping and not bashing each other when upset, and so on. These places will usually require mainly that a child be toilet trained (with an occasional accident), and they should group them by age.

It can be quite expensive either way.

Is an emachine boot disk W2828 compatible with compaq presario desk topS4000v series?


No.

When Windows is put on a computer it assigns hash values to certain major hardware components;

1) Processor
2) Motherboard chipset
3) BIOS program, version, and date
4) Harddrive
5) Graphics chipset

Instead, I would like to post that you can get the Restoration Disk, for your Compaq.

THE disk.

On the back of the desktop is the Serial Number in a white Service Tag. S/N = Serial Number
Only give this to an authorized HP representative.
(HP bought out Compaq)

In the US the disk is free.
The shipping and handling is not.

$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 1-800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Write the Serial Number down to give to the nice representative.

Outside the US,

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html

After you install the Restoration Disk in the computer, and when asked, choose Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

How can i unblock myspace from school computer


Your school has a pretty good reason for blocking myspace in school.

To unblock this, you can use a proxy but I am pretty sure that your school may have blocked proxy websites already if their security is good.

try this one : www.nakatago.com

But the shcool's IT may still detect it and block it right away.

I have a Compaq Presario SR5350F which suddenly has started shutting itself off after being on for about 5 minutes. I ran the test stuff and it didn't show anything wrong with the hard drive or processor....


First thing to do if you have not cleaned the inside of the computer is give it a good cleaning. There may be enough dust inside that it is overheating. Reply if that is not the problem.
