Compaq / Hewlett Packard Support Website. Make sure you have correct Compaq model (ie: Presario 5000). You should have a partition on the hard drive markes "system restore" or the likes. If not, you should have the O.E.M. (CD-ROM) that came with the system that will also let you re-install the operating system. A word of caution, if you try and re-install the O/S without the orgional CD-ROMS you may not have all the correct hardware drivers.

Problem with satellite a85 wireless and dvd not working


If bothe of these problems occurred relatively close together then I would say you've been infected. Run AVGFREE, MALWARE BYTES and SUPERANTISPYWARE. Once the operating system is clean, then goto Start, Run and type SFC /scannow. This commands will put back drivers that were corrupted. Be sure to have the orginal Operating System CD at hand.
