How to get back off the Compaq Presario sr5000?

Trying to add a small board with antenna so that my new computer can use the DSL box for our old computer 3 rooms away. Have removed all screws that seem reasonable (the bottom cooling fan fell into the computer when I removed its last mount screw). Back does not even seem loose tho. help!

Where is the boot cables on a compaq sr5000

Tell me what a 'Boot Cable' is, and I'll jump right on it

How was the phrase used to you?

Are you referring to the SATA data cables?
Are you referring to the IDE (PATA) cable?

Is this a reference to 'Boot Strap'?

Compaq computer running vista trying to add a printer message local print spooler is not running I have started the print spooler through admin tools but everytime I close the control panel it must switch...

Start the simple route: uninstall and reinstall the printer and its software. If the software is old, head to the printer manufacturer's website and download the latest driver package.
Meanwhile, track back to when the print spooler worked successfully. Was there any new software installed that may have caused the problem? A possible update from Windows, perhaps?

If you have a virus/spyware which it sounds like you do, you are going to be paying $200 for removal and about 129$ for a standard security setup! It will be cheaper to fix the problem, You are looking around a min. of $400 for a new pc and $149 for the full advanced security! Cheaper to fix it.
