Question about Compaq Presario 5070 (117815-004) PC Desktop
I have an older Compaq Presario 5070 desktop and I'm running Windows 98. I go to the quick restore page and pressed full restore and typical restore and my computer does nothing. I've run into this problem before and only solved the problem after weeks of trying over and over again! I even tried reinstalling Windows 98 a couple of times. The reason I'm even trying to perform this operation is to debug my system and start fresh. I'm trying to avoid costly repairs if I can. It was suggested that there may be files missing. HELP!!!
What size is yous hard drive and is the windows installing it'self properly and the other problem is have you got all the motherboard drivers if not then the system will become unstable and the hard drive will need to be format back to manufactures default as the files thet were on drive are burrired deep and the only way to get rid of problems is using a program called kill disk then using your win 98 start-up floppy and fdisk the hard drive then partition then format the hard drive then install windows on then all other files for motherboard and graphics and other devices. it should take you about 1 day to get back on line with pc up and running. hope this helps
