Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
u just posted a solution to a problem which i am experiencing also you said:
reinstall the OS ! Just overrite it over the previouse xp so u won;t lose data ...
..most probably u are missing some files ... .. or u have virusez issues. Ofecourse there is the posibility of hardware mallfunction, but considering microsofts reputation ... probably thats not the issue ...
but how do i reinstall the OS and overrite the previous windows. how do i do this?
OS - operating system ...
u boot the system with u're windows xp cd (check that the bios settins specify that the first boot device is the cd-rom). And then at one of the installing steps u will be asked where to install the OS (on what partition). Give it the same partition on witch u have the xp installed now (C usually, so it's the first partition). When it will ask u aboaut formating the partition, select: leave the partion intact(or something like this)...
u should also have: a try reparing option before this... u can try it also ... but in my experince is **** ...
i hope u understand ...
by the way, whan u are fed up with windows u can try linux ! Infinitly more stable and no worries for viruses and **** ....
