Is a compaq presario 5000/8000 quick restore cd compatible with a compaq presario 2175us laptop?


I guess not. Drivers for compaq presario 5000/8000, are not the same as those for a compaq presario 2175us laptop. Now, actually that "notebook" looks to me rather outdated. You won't lose anything by trying. Worst case, format hard drive and install Windows XP SP3. Try to search internet for missing drivers.

I have an old Presario 5000 series PC, hard disk crashed, bought a new hard disk and tried to use the Quick Restore CD's to Restore to Factory settings. Can't seem to boot up from Disc 1 of the Quick...


For boot from disk first you have to set first boot device option in BIOS.
for that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom.
then save settings then insert recovery diks in rom then check.
Then it boot from disk if your disk and cd.dvd rom works fine.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

Compaq restore cd


Hi mithz.
I'm not you people.
(Please keep track of the user who you ask a question too).

When you installed windows 2000, (If you formatted the entire drive during install), you might have taken out the small partition that holds data for a system restore. No version of windows likes
you going backwards. In order for you're system restore CD's to work you'll need to format the hard disk drive. Windows will not install if Windows 2000 is found on the drive. The fastest way to get Windows 2000 off the drive without deleting any other partitions Compaq installed would be to go to the hard disk drives manufacture's site & download their setup tools/utilities. You'll be able to creat a bootable floppy disk that will function in a dos-like mode out side of windows. You'll be able to format the Windows 2000 partition. Once that is done you will be able to incert the restore CD (s) & install Compaqs windows XP.
You may need to pull the drive in order to see who made the drive. EX; Seagate, Smsung, Maxtor ect. Here is the link for Seagate. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools
Every manufacture has similar bootable floppy software.
Read the instruction provided by the manufacture on how to create the floppy disk & how to run it.

Good Luck!

Compaq presario 5000 not booting up right.


Does the Compaq logo appear when you try to start the computer? Try pressing F10 several times after turning on the power. This should start the "recovery console", which will give you some options for restoring Windows. If the recovery console doesn't start up, there is a good possibility that your hard drive or power supply module may be defective. In that case, you will probably need professional assistance to diagnose the problem.

hmmm..interesting question..compaq always makes this an unusual issue. I'd say you'd need the restore disk, yes. You might find them through this link, but you'll need to do some digging, methinks.

Restoring OS on presario 5000 series


you need to format the whole hard drive as it's the hidden restore partition that is giving you problems, but you may not be able to format it using the XP cd or restore disk. You may have to use the old FDISK as this may be the only way to restore the hidden partition. You will need a boot disk, see below link for win98 as this is what you will need to fdisk, then follow instructions on bottom link, as it's too long to type in here. http://www.bootdisk.com/ http://www.pcanswers.co.uk/tutorials/default.asp?siteid=8§iontypeid=7&subsectionid=606&pagetypeid=2&articleid=6046&page=2
