Question about Compaq Presario C700T Notebook
How do I reinstall windows xp and overide the software thats is currupt? I purchased this computer from a friend and the original xp that is install go messed up by a teenager with porn sites and limewire? Can I reinstall xp without buying a disk. The computer came with xp already install but no disk?
You can install from any XP install disk provided that you use the same version install disk, this could be X08 or X10 or X11 (this is printed on the label which is attached to the bottom of the laptop. Also you need to enter the product code which is also printed on this label during the installation process.
You need to activate the XP licence and install the various device drivers that are not working (eg. video, audio, modem, NIC etc.) You will need to go to the manufacturer's WEB site to download the Windows XP drivers for your model laptop from another computer in order to do this.

You can try a few things...
1. Uninstall any suspect programs ... Go into Control Panel, Add Remove programs and remove them.
2. Buy and install good anti-virus software ... this will remove threats.
3. Create a new account with Administrator rights and delete all old accounts.
4. Download Spybot Search and Destroy and Adaware. Run the scans on these programs they will remove alot of spyware.
5. Run System Restore, (from Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools) Restore your computer as far back as you can....
and ... keep your laptop away from pesky teenagers!!!!!
