Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

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.

Check that you hooked up all the power supply connections. Try a new motherboard battery as the old one may be dead and the bios is not working. You are evidently not getting a post beep signaling that the cpu, ram, video are good.

You cannot use the restore disks from those other systems to do a restore. Even though you may be able to extract the XP install files, you won't be able to authenticate it because the disk is OEM and reads data off of the system it is supposed to install on.

If you have an emachine, contact them for the restore disk, or search the internet for a restore disk for your model. Some people sell them, even on ebay.

and download the latest sound driver. It sounds like you are using the old Compaq RPC software and Compaq was bought out by HP years ago. All driver updates on HP/Compaq systems should be downloaded from HP.COM

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.
Thanks.

It sounds like the Hard disk has failed. You might be able to replace it if you can get one from a computer swap meet. but you are likely up for a new PC.

Hp Compaq Dx6100mt


NOTE: you are using a PC that is from 4 years ago. Any number of things could be wrong with the set, which includes the audio chip.

Now, did you install the appropriate audio driver? Assuming you bought this thing off fleabay, did the seller at least gave you the original system restoration disc? If he did, try the audio driver from the disc first.

You may also refer to this thread.
