Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
I'm assumming the drive you are referring to was a partitioned hard disk drive where you saved files and installed programs. If this is where your Operating System was installed to then by deleting the drive you have in effect damaged your OS. Since many applications and program files are directly tied into the registry of your OS, in effect this means those files are damaged as well.
If you require files on the hard drive partition you deleted, I would recommend taking it to a data recovery service at your local computer store.
If not, you should take your operating system CD, load it into your CD drive, and when you boot your computer up at one of the bios screen choose to reinstall Windows. At this point you can format your old partition F when it prompts you to do so if you don't care about the remnants of any files that may not have been deleted.
Hope this helps somewhat.
