Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
Compaq Presario 5400us. Had Windows Xp, now has Windows 98.
The memory is supposed to be 20 GB. It is only 1.9 GB.I have tried all of the things that windows HELP has suggested. Nothing worked. Nothing has been removed or added to the computer.It works fine except it doesn't have the correct memory. Installing windows took up half of the memory. It has a memory card in it from the factory.When XP was in it it had the correct memory.
Use windows 98 to make a rescue disk (3 1/2 floppy)
use that emergency disk to repartition and format the hard drive. You can probley use fat16.
