What kind of windows you wanted to install? Compaq d5 are pentium 4 computers with maverage of 1gb of ram I believe. I would say install XP on it. Vista will do but will be slow. The link will be your guide in installing XP.

I have pc Hp compaq dc 7100 ultra slim, the sound card not working even I installed driver of card but the sound card not working yet.


Hello, was the sound working before, i would like to know

1. Your sound card might be disabled from the bios. Restart your computer and quickly press F2, F10 or Delete button to get into the bios to check.
2. Un-install your sound card driver completely and then re-install
3. Your sound may be disabled from within windows, check for the speaker icon on your taskbar and if the slider works.
4. Another hardware on your computer is conflicting with your sound card. Have you installed any recent hardware or software? if so remove them and see if it solves the problem
