My compaq presario 5000 wont turn on all the way, it says non system disk or disk error replace and strike any key

Hi Kelly,
your computer is trying to tell you that it can not find an operating system (e.g. windows) to start the computer with... that means one of two things... either A) your operating system (e.g. Windows) is corrupt or B) your hard drive is corrupt or not connected correctly.

For A) all you can do is reinstall windows either from the installation DVD or from a Backup that you may or or may not have.

For B) make sure your hard drive is connected correctly. If you turn on your computer and you cannot hear/feel it running, chances are it is not connected to power. (Note: many newer hard drives are very quiet and hard to tell if they are really on or not). Another way to find out if it is working or not is to take it out of your PC and put it in a USB casing and hook it up to another PC, if it is in working order you should see it in Windows Explorer and see the data on it... If not then it is quite likely broken and you will need to get a new hard drive and reinstall windows on it.

Hope that helps.

My computer keeps freezing up in the middle of sites that I'm on. Can you advise me as to how to correct it?

Sounds like you might have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira.

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs..

My computer will not start up it tell me to insert a system disk. what is a system disk

Your computer cannot boot up because it cannot find a boot up program from any of your boot devices.
This fault could be caused by a faulty hard disk or you have a non-boot floppy disk in the floppy drive. In this case remove the floppy disk and boot up your computer again.
If the hard disk is faulty, replace the hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive, plus the computer's device drivers and your programs to get the computer operating again.

I have a dvd writer model LG GSA-E60L an when i install windows xp tells me that it is not digtally signed and also it comes up with error41 cant find hardware wont let me install and also i cant find my...

Code 41
Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)
Recommended resolution

A driver was loaded but Windows cannot find the device. This error occurs when Windows does not detect a non-Plug and Play device.

If the device was removed, uninstall the driver, install the device, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall the driver. If the hardware was not removed, obtain a new or updated driver for the device.

If the device is a non-Plug and Play device, a newer version of the driver might be needed. To install non-Plug and Play devices, use the Add Hardware wizard. Click Performance and Maintenance on Control Panel, click System, and on the Hardware tab, click Add Hardware Wizard.

On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.
