Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
I bought my computer from goodwill so the operating system was wiped, I got a version of windows me because I was told it was most compatible. But when I put in the disk it dosnt prmpt me to load it I cant figure out what the problem is. All the screen says is "there is no operating system found on hard drive" then after a few seconds it says "there is no operating system on any other devices press any key to retry" well thank you hope to hear some good news back.
Start ur computer
hit delete to enter setup
go to the second title of the setup ( i forgot wats called heh..)
go to first boot device and choose cd rom
exit saving changes and restart ur pc
u will see the phrase ( hit any key to boot from cd)
hit any key and start the installation.
ps: try to get windows xp sp2 ...its good

For some reason the Bios wont allow the CD ROM to recognize and CD at startup. I have tried many cd's from win98 to winXP, both burned and factory discs, ISOs and setups. Nothing works. These things are boxes of crap if you dont have the recovery CD;s.
