Put original Operating System CD into drive, boot computer from CD and start reinstalling system. When you get to screen that says you can press "R" to repair the Operating system, press "R" and see if it can fix the system. Once it's running, be sure to check for Malware (use Malwarebytes) and viruses (use Vipre-rescue) - and get a good registry cleaner (Cleanmypc) and clean up the registry. If repairing the OS doesn't work, then you'll probably have to format and re-install everything. Being a Compaq, watch the screen for a "Restore" function, and follow the prompts.

My first method will not lose you date, the second one will. Restoration will format the drive and you'll lose everything.

Good luck.

Wont boot up,black screen.message on screen says,invalid partitio


When you power up your computer, the system examines the master partition table to determine what volume to use to boot up the operating system, and detected invalid information within it. This is caused by an incorrect or missing active partition.
To resolve this issue, consider the following steps:
  • Boot up the computer with a Microsoft Windows 98 boot up disk or Windows XP recovery console. Select the correct bootup device before you do that.
  • At the DOS command prompt, type in: fdisk
  • Question - Do you wish to enlarge large disk support (Y/N) ?
  • Enter: Y
  • Now to check for active partition, enter: 2
  • Look under the Status column. The active partition is usually assigned to the drive which contains your operating system.
  • If there's no active partition set, enter the number of the partition to make active
This must solve your problem.

Hi,
what you need to do, is go into the Bios. usually F2 at setup.
Or esc or delete. you have to press a few times at bootup.
Once in the bios screen, find the page where you can change the boot sequence. it,s probably set to boot from HDD( hard disk ) set it to boot from CD/DVD first then FDD Or HDD second.
when you save and exit, it will boot from the dvd drive, this will give you access, to use the cd drive first.
then re-install your operating system.
