Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
I bought my computer from tecomputers so the operating system was wiped, I got a version of windows xp because I was told it was compatible. when the windows xp setup is finished and the computer restarts it does the windows xp setup again it keeps doing it again and again. well thanks you hope to hear some good news back.
Should be one of two things.
First: Make sure you remove the disk as Windows restarts as it may be on a continuous cycle even after Windows is done loading.
Second: You should check your hard disk for errors and have it repair any bad sectors. This is done by: Booting from XP and choose the Recovery console Once your in DOS (black screen
with a flashing cursor) type in the following commands exactly
" chkdsk /r "(this will check you hard disk for errors, it will take a
while depending on size of your hard disk). Then continue any additional disk repair options. If this all fails then the problem is with a bad hard drive and has to be replaced.
