Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have Compaq presario desktop which seems to be eating up HDD space. The main partition is 290GB.I have a preinstalled Vista home premium OS, MS Works, Office 2003 and an Epson all in one Printer. The only files worth talking about are Music(1.37GB) and Pictures(339MB)-hardly setting the hills on fire. The system is showing the C drive to have used 39.1GB. Can this be true? Best regards, Ewan.

Hi Ewan
Vista is a massive install which takes over 7GB from a clean install, after updates it takes considerably more space and top of that are the programmes that we all like to use like nero, office etc, keep an eye on how much hard drive space you have on the boot (C:) partition because overfilling them can cause system crashes, back up as much music, vids, docs and pic as you can. You can also delete the temp files using a programme called ccleaner.exe which is freeware

You need to format the drive so back up all docs etc that you want to keep and then boot from the install disc (make sure it's an install disc NOT an upgrade) then you will see an option to format and partition the drive. The problem is that Vista is an upgrade from xp, and it won't allow you to downgrade.

HP doesn't offer specific driver downloads for your computer. It came preinstalled with Windows Vista, however the computer has standard hardware. You can go the the manufacturer's site and download the drivers for each peice of hardware.

  • Motherboard: MSI MS-7525
  • Chipset: Intel G31 Express 
  • Video: Integrated graphics using Intel GMA 3100
  • Audio: Realtek ALC662
  • NIC: Realtek 8101E 10/100 Mb/s (Gigabit Ethernet) Integrated LAN

To make recovery partition for vista


If that's a brand new model damroo, the recovery cd should be a software that you can click on the desktop, it should say something like HP PC System Recovery or something similar. For a complete guide, try checking this out. It should be similar in making recovery cd on XP/Vista.

Hope this helps.
