    You will probably need to download some drivers from the Compaq website. First let's ask - Have you "powered it up"? Did you get a "bios" screen? You will have to see how much room is in the Hard disk drive of the unit to figure out how much room you will need to choose and install an Operating System. I'll stop at this point to get your response to the questions.
    Hear from you soon.

You will need to install Windows XP or Vista by putting a Windows XP or Vista disk into the drive and then restarting the computer and running the cd. You can buy Windows Vista at any store that primarily carries computers, such as Best Buy.

How to Fix Registry Errors and Optimize PC?


The Windows registry is a database that stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. The registry also provides a window into the operation of the kernel, exposing runtime information such as performance counters and currently active hardware. Registry is so important that Microsoft suggest users not to edit it, or it will affect some functions of the system even cause system crash.


The most common registry error is DLL errors. If users frequently install and uninstall software, it can also leave some wrong uninstall entries in the registry. Some anti-virus or anti-spyware will false report and destroy DLL file of some soft ware. Without DLL file, the program will pop up some strange message and can’t run. Also, Control Panel can’t remove DLL files of soft ware. If these DLL files stay in registry, this will cause system errors. Day by day, registry is full of junk files and the computer will run slowly and...

I have a acer aspire 5515 and all of a sudden it is running very poorly and slow


I am assuming that you are running windows on this machine.

The problem could be spam ware or registry errors. I would try these steps and see if it helps to speed it back up.

First Back up your data!

Next check your antivirus software to make sure it is updated and scan the machine completely.

I would then try downloading some spam ware remover software from Adaware or spybot. A lot of times when I have computers that are running slow at work scan them and find a lot of hidden spam ware that accumulates from the internet Removing this spam ware will make it run faster.

I would also recommend, after running the spam ware removal software, and anti virus software, running CCleaner from http://www.ccleaner.com/ it is free and will scan your registry for errors due to installations and installations that have taken place over the years.

Also you may need to run the defragmenter from CCleaners web site as well. I find it works better than the included one in windows.

I you do this and it does not help you can try backing up your data and reinstalling windows from your recovery disks. If you do a fresh install and it is still slow you will have to look at sending in your laptop for repair.

I hope these steps help.

Need a product key for microsoft word 2007


The only way you can get a product key is if you bought the software, it should be on your case. If you don't have a case or anything like that you need to call Microsoft and purchase a key from them, typically running 3 to 18 dollars depending on the program.

Can't get the set-up screen to come up with F10 or anything else!


There are many solutions for your problem. The one I know is to download the soft pack from the section "Software - System Management " that let you create a bootable floppy setup.
It is common for Armadas get the hidden partition with diagnostics and setup erased in formatting tasks.
Well then, download the "Computer Setup for portables" in that section. Before that you need to know the code of your laptop, that comes underneath it.
For example:
Compaq Armada 1700 Notebook PC 6233/S/3200/D/M/1
then
Microsoft Windows 98
then
Computer Setup for Portables
download sp and extract files, and use Make Disk.

If you use XP, try download version Win98 / Win2k.

Good luck.

Various problems issues with my laptop soft ware hard ware


hey there,

1. you cant delete something that is from a read only file. it is impossable to do.

2. you have 2 do a degrag every week to make sure you have enough space.

3. you need 2 go into add or remove programs to uninstall your printer software. putting the disk back into the laptop is trying to tell the laptop that you want to install it but it already knows that you have that program in your system already.
