Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

Lost authentication code

I have an old Compaq 5015 that my son bought for college years ago. It was nearly unuseable and I found the quick restore disk and did a full restore. I didn't realize that an authentication code was necessary on the reboot. I've looked for the documentation, but can't find the code. Can you tell me how to get the code?

In your search window type in Craagle, they will ask you if you want to install the software, Install it because that software will get you the codes for anything you need a code for. its free. after Craagle is installed, open it and type in your model of computer and click search. It will find numerous codes to download, pick the one you want. you will also need a torrent downloader. Install U-torrent first and it is also free if you pick the earlier version. just type in those names in your search window and it will take you where you want to go. scroll up and down till you find the download. Good Luck.

Go to Start Menu, point at Control Panel and right click then select 'Open'.

First, check the programs you have installed. It's songs and videos right? Then, open "Programs and Features".

Take your time to select programs you don't need one after the other and click "Uninstall". Just leave Media players, converters and burners or special type readers/writers.

Secondly, check if Windows Update is doing a quick and silent one on your software. Still in Control Panel, click "Windows Update" and choose to turn off updates entirely.

Now, the baloon comes up at your task bar. Well, in that section of control panel, choose "Change the way Security Center" alerts me and uncheck "Updates".

Thirdly, Update your antivirus and do a full scan of your computer.

Fourthly, if you use Microsoft Security Essentials, you can have a restore point created automatically on each scheduled system scan.

In that way you can do a disk cleanup after such scan. To be on the safer side, keep "System Restore" on.

After a disk cleanup, check if your files are intact and do the disk cleanup option in the second tab of your disk properties "Clean Restore points" except the most recent.

I guess the System Restore option should be your point of call and disk cleanup to the most recent.

I hope this works for you.

For boot from disk first you have to set first boot device option in BIOS.
for that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom.
then save settings then insert recovery diks in rom then check.
Then it boot from disk if your disk and cd.dvd rom works fine.
Let me know if you need more assistance.

Can i restore a compaq armada 1952DMT without the disc?

Hi guy1121,

since this type of laptop is a very old one you should think about installing a Linux-system on it.

In case you're still having a genuine and unused MS Windows 98-setup disc you could also try to use that one to install and use your laptop with. In that case you should check before whether HP (they bought Compaq some years ago) is still providing drivers for the laptop and for its use with Windows 98 (which is not very likely).

Good luck and greetings from Germany,
