Compaq Presario 5WV270 Has No Oprating System

I have a Compaq Presario 5WV270 that had widows me on it, And I lost the hard drive on it. So I reformatted the hard drive, Now I have nothing on it and cannot find recovery disk and really cannot afford it now if I did find it. But i do have a Windows 95 disk, So how would I go about putting that windows 95 on the computer?

Installing windows 95 on your pc would require you to have a bootable disk (either a floppy or cd)
insert your bootable disk and go to bios settings --> once you start your desktop pc, press Del key
then go to Boot menu and select your frist boot to floppy or cd (wherever your bootable disk is) then exit and save changes.
once your pc boots from the bootable disk goto C:
then make a directory (let's say Win95) --> C:\md win95
then press enter
then goto that directory which you've just created ---> C;\cd win95
then press enter
then copy your windows 95 disk on this directory
once you finished copy, run setup
be sure to remove your bootable disk the next time your pc restarts or change the boot sequence (again in Bios settings) to your harddrive as first boot
hope this helps

I am attempting to replace the orignal monitor for a compaq presario with a dell flat screen. how do i change the driver for the monitor


You should not need a driver for the monitor to work, as long as you are using Windows XP and above
as this OS will , or should work with all monitors.
In windows update, you will probebly get offered a driver for this monitor, which you can download and install if you wish

Need to upgrade from Windows ME to Windows XP or Viesta


Yes you can upgrade to windows xp service pack 2/3 without problem. I recommend you update the bios (rompaq) from the revision on the compaq site, and install at least a second
SDRAM 256mb memory module in it first or it will run slow and hang up frequently. I've been running mine on XP for years, still using it now;) (with 384 memory-one 128chip and one 256 chip)
