Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
Please, my laptop is so slow, want tto backup, reformat and reload.Please Help George
1. back up
suggest you get yourself a USB hard drive, bigger than the size of all your important files. if you have 20GB of important files, get a external usb drive of atleast 60 or more I don't know if they actually sell that small drives anymore just make sure you have enought room.
2. get the the windows installation cd
with the windows installation cd you can format the hard drive in the setup
3. while in the xp setup
after the format you can install the windows on the computer again right away.
you may need to get drivers for your computer ones the windows is installed again.
you will need to find the correct model from the bottom of your laptop, and the drivers are available on this page
