Call compaq tech support and have them send you a system restore disk for your pc. If it came with 2000, that's what the restore disk will have.

I hve a compaq presario 5000 desktop. It will

if you can view your desktop and use the menus, go to start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore, if you had enabled this option earlier then you can restore the system to an earlier known date when you system worked.
else you can try installing winXP again, try the option to "Update" when the install option comes on.
else start PC, before the WinXp screen comes on press F8 key, use the Safe Mode to start PC, if you can see everything then shut down and restart in normal mode.

Clean the drive so it can be put back to orginal factory

Compaq / Hewlett Packard Support Website. Make sure you have correct Compaq model (ie: Presario 5000). You should have a partition on the hard drive markes "system restore" or the likes. If not, you should have the O.E.M. (CD-ROM) that came with the system that will also let you re-install the operating system. A word of caution, if you try and re-install the O/S without the orgional CD-ROMS you may not have all the correct hardware drivers.
