My laptop wont boot up


Listen, chances are that your OS is corrupted beyond repair. Suggest that you complete wipe clean the drive , format it to ntfs standard, and then go about with a clean install of windows.

And if your laptop originally came preinstalled with an OS other than win 10, I would suggest that you go with the original OS.. Win 10 will no doubt cause you headaches you do not need or want.

Oh, and before you go any further make sure that there is nada wrong with your hard drive - do diagnostics on it to make sure.

Would like to wipe the harddrive clean and reinstall my games etc but do not want to not loose the original drivers and os system I can see the manual but is on the computer i want to do this with. is it...


Surgically removing is teeedious
Leaving just the os and driversJust find your data folders and start purging but watch out ad remove programs can get sticky so with a backup you can dabble all you want.

How do you wipe the compaq presario m2000


I'm not sure if you are wiping it to start over or to sell/give away.

Many newer machines have a Recovery Partition, usually your "D:" drive.

Access the System Recovery partition from the Start-All Programs-System Recovery-System Recovery Menu. Following the prompts will allow you to reformat the computer and reinstall the operating system and all software as it came from the factory. From that point, if you don't want any of the factory junk, you'll need to uninstall it yourself.

If the Recovery partition is missing, (usually a D: drive) , then you'll need to have the original Recovery discs which were created when the computer was new.

If you simply want to wipe it, use a disk wiping tool. Many hard drive wipers, cleaners or shredders can be downloaded at no cost. Visit Downloads.com to search for these programs that are designed to wipe your hard drive. Once you have downloaded a disk wiping program, install it on your computer. Each program will have a unique graphical user interface (GUI) and directions for use. Follow the directions for your selected disk wiping tool and run the program to wipe your hard drive. The program will make sure that all files and data have been completely erased by overwriting the entries multiple times.

Replaced hard drive. All installed Windows programs start up and others are gone. How do I reinstall. I have program disks for Win 98, Win xp home, win 2000 pro and a few others. There has been no problem...


Any "add-on" programs (Adobe Reader, Winamp, Audacity, OpenOffice) must be "reinstalled" onto the new disk-drive.

If Windows is re-installed and running, then you _can_ give it away;
perhaps, the new owner will want _NONE_ of those "add-on" programs to be installed.

A black screen with a blue box asking to ENTER CURRENT PASSWORD


If you can get a windows 98 disk just to format the drive you can reinstall without any problem .the thing is that if you do a clean install the drive needs to be complely clean of the os so if you start with win 98 than win you install your system disk you should have no problem the thing is when you do a reinstall some time the drive is not wiped clean just reinstalled over and you still have the same problem soo try to find win 98 or have someone make you a boot disk it will contain fdisk which is a disk format utility than install you restore disk this should work good luck let me know what happens

Restore Disc


You can purchase the restore disks from Compaq directly if they still have any in stock. You can go to their website.  I would not recommend reinstalling 98 on the computer. You would be better off wiping off the system and installing xp on it being that 98 is old and no longer supported.

 

Hope this helps you
