What operating system you are using before installing windows xp. If it is windows 98, Your restore cd will restore windows 98. if you want to restore to factory settings pls boot from the restore cd and format the harddisk. Becareful, this will erase your entire data on the harddisk which cannot be recover. If you are using licenced (not pirated) windows xp boot from it and reinstall windows xp so that you can run the os smoothly. But in either case becarefull when you are formating, it will destroy entire data and you may endup in soup. feel free to revert back for further quiries

Is a compaq presario 5000/8000 quick restore cd compatible with a compaq presario 2175us laptop?


I guess not. Drivers for compaq presario 5000/8000, are not the same as those for a compaq presario 2175us laptop. Now, actually that "notebook" looks to me rather outdated. You won't lose anything by trying. Worst case, format hard drive and install Windows XP SP3. Try to search internet for missing drivers.

My quick restore doesnt work for my compaq presario 2700t labtop how do i get it to work


Hi

Do you mean your system restore, sometimes the hard drive will not be able to restore your laptop to a earlier time because of file corruption.

You can try and google the problem to see if anyone else resolved this issue or you will have to save your data and re-install windows and the drivers again.

cheers

Did a system restore of compaq presario 5000 computer. cd/dvd player will not play gaming cds


See if it would play regular cd, then see if it would play dvd's. The reason is because most gaming cd now and days are dvd's and maybe your dvd-rom has a driver issue or the laser head isn't reading it. So try that first, then see if the drivers for the cd/dvd rom is working properly in the device manager. It may need a dvd coded software, try installing like powerdvd or something. If it still ain't working, and it can't play dvd's then your cd-drive could be history

I have been given a Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop but it has password that we don't know . It did not come with any type of cds. I need to wipe it clean but how do I restore the windows xp home edition?


Well, here's the bad news. 1) Windows XP is not supported any more by Microsoft. (2) You need the original CD's that previously installed XP on your computer. If you can't get them from the previous owner, then you'll have to try and find some original CD's and reinstall XP on your machine, from scratch. (3) If your computer has what it needs, an option is to install Windows 7 on your computer - it depends how old your computer is and if it has the necessary hardware.

What is the largest hard drive (in GB) I can install in my Presario 5000?I'm trying to use a 160 GB drive and I can't get the OS to load on it. Any ideas on what could be the problem? Thanks!


The 106GB drive looks fine. When you installed the drive did you make sure you set up the drive and cables correctly? If this is the only drive in your system, there are two settings to check.

First the cable connecter on a ide drive should be black, not gray.

Next the drive has a set of jumper settings and it should be set as cable-select or master, not slave.

If those items are ok, then is your O/S CD a restore or a release of windows? A restore cd might be a problem if the drive is not formatted. Most O/S cds will ask if you want to format the drive and setup partitions.

If none of this works, provide more information.
if it works PLEASE LEAVE SOLUTION FEEDBACK.

I hve a compaq presario 5000 desktop. It will


if you can view your desktop and use the menus, go to start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore, if you had enabled this option earlier then you can restore the system to an earlier known date when you system worked.
else you can try installing winXP again, try the option to "Update" when the install option comes on.
else start PC, before the WinXp screen comes on press F8 key, use the Safe Mode to start PC, if you can see everything then shut down and restart in normal mode.
