Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
Ok when I put in the compaq recovery cd and shutdown and then turned it back on,
I got this error:
run-time error R6003
-integer divide by 0
and then it just stops right there,
it won't give me the option to reinstall windows
In my experience, weird errors like this are usually caused by bad RAM. I have to wonder why you are reinstalling in the first place, was your Windows installation corrupted and running funny?
If you have access to another computer download and burn the memtest86 utility and run it on your Compaq Presario 5000. If the memory shows any errors you will have to replace it (if you have more than one stick, test each module one at a time as likely only one stick went bad).
If you do not have access to another machine, pull your memory out one at a time and try to run the restore disks again until you can identify the bad module. Once you remove the bad one, the restore CDs should run smoothly, albeit somewhat slower because of the lower memory count.
Since you already completed the first attempt to run the recovery CDs you may have corrupted the installation on the HDD to the point where you have to do a full install. This would lose all your data and programs. Perhaps it might be better to experiment with a spare blank HDD first as the data files might still be recoverable from your original HDD.
Please post comments on your progress.

Tips for a great answer:
and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "HP
Support" or "Compaq Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support).
Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating
system when requested. Look for Manuals and search them for System Recovery.
