Step 1: right click the my computer icon on your desktop and go to properties.
Step 2: go to the advanced tab and click the startup and recovery settings button
Step 3: Choose your best OS from the drop down menu, then uncheck the box next to "time to display list of operating systems"
this should take care of it.

My Compaq Presario 5000 series (year 2001) is running extremely slow. I was told to use the original disc and start it over again. I do not have one. Where can I get one?


what operating system have you got? You can load Windows XP clean on it and download drivers from hp.com . How much Ram have you got in the PC , maybe upgrade RAM?

Will a IJ1200 printer work with a compaq presario 5000? We are small church..whose printer IJ600 stopped working and we see a Ij1200 on-line at ebay. Betty


It's not an issue of your computer, but rather your operating system. If you're running XP, Vista, or 7, it should not be a problem. Just download the drivers for this model from HP.com and it will identify the printer.

Either your Hard drive (hd) crashed or your hd cable or port is faulty. if your software is corrupt boot with a boot disk (assume you are using XP or Vista), press R on the blue options screen. you will be given a black dos prompt screen. Type in fixboot and type Y for an answer.

Have Windows ME,seems to be outdated. Do not make software for it anymore. Would like to upgrade to Vista.Can't hook up anything to it. Have to be Vista or XP. Which is better for a Compaq Presario 5000


The Compaq Presario 5000 is not powerful enough to run Vista so XP is your best bet. I assume you have the standard 512MB RAM which will be fine for XP Once you outgrow that you'll need to go for more powerful hardware. By that time the new Windows 7 should have been officially released.

Error loading operating system


If you take a hard drive for one computer to another the windows wil have to be reinstalled as windows looks at the hardware configuation and if it doesn not match, will not run. If the 20 gb hard is working , reinstall it then using backup software back it up to another hard drive.That will work. Personally I use" Acronis true home" software to change a hard drive but their  are other  wil also work. Some  backup and transfer softwware even come with the replacment hard drives.
