Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
Pls Help!!! I have a Compaq Presario computer. Every thing was authentic and licensed etc,. I had someone to work on the my computer and it was working. Now, when I turn the computer on, it says "Copy of Windows must be activated before you can log on. Yes or No? When I click "yes" it says "Problem is preventing Windows from accurately checking the license for this computer." ERROR: ox80004005.
XP was added and it was not authentic. Pls help me if you can. What do I do next?
I did think Windows Xp even run on a 64K memory!!
the reason you are getting the error, because the size of meomries.
Here is the thing, lets say you get a working copy of the Windows Xp, and installed it. your machine is going to about half hours to come up, it is going to take longer if you go on the Internet. (5minutes per page).
by the way presario 5000 dated back to Win95. maximum memory is 512MB. which is minimum requirement for WIndows XP.
The cost for upgrade your machine to minimum specification is not really worth. you are going to have to get a new one soon.
the reason for this, is all of the software and Internet web applications are running at a 2007-2008 software, the machine you are using will never be able catch up to it. (todays standard).
My suggestion: if you can affort it, get a new or refurbished one with minimum specification (e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you want the specs.) you will be much happier.
