Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
Since there is no CD in the drive the computer is attempting to boot of the hard drive and not finding the files it requires (unless you have it set to boot off a USB device before the hard drive).
You cannot simply use the recovery disk from one system on another because these disks install drivers specific to the hardware of the computer for which it is intended.
You need to find the CDs that came with this system or contact HP and order them. Please note that running a recovery CD will wipe all your personal data from the system (this may very well have happened already), since this drive will not boot, connect it to another system as a slave or use a USB enclosure to see if there is anything you can salvage.
