What you have to do is when you turn on your computer you either have to hit esc. F2 F8 or F10. Whichever command that takes you to the boot menu. Make sure the Windows XP is already in the computer. Then you going to want to boot from the cd and make sure you have all the files and pictures that you want saved backed up somehow before doing this cause your computer will be re-formatted and when this is finished takes a little over an hour any problems that you had before should be eliminated and if not then its time to buy a new one.

Dell installed on compaq


Hi, you have to use the original CD installer for WinXP that came bundled with your Compaq Presario. Reinstalling with the use of that CD will overwrite all previous installtion (from Dell) and should correctly install the drivers as well. Should the CD be not available, you may want to try and call Microsoft Support and relay to them your problem. You may need copies of proof of purchase and other documents and/or the serial number for the WinXP normally printed on a sticker at the side, back (or underneath for a laptop) of the PC. Another way is to purchase a CD installer of WinXP SP2 and go thru the routine of installing it. Hiope this be of some help to you. Good luck.
