How can get driver for Wind XP

There are no drivers user loaded, the instruction is in the cd / dvd disk drive already from the factory, but when you load the OS, it has some included... these have been known to become corrupt or filtered...
In case windows no longer recognizes the cd dvd disk drive, as if the disk drive driver were erased...

left click start in the lower left hand of the screen
left click run
type regedit
left click OK
Now the registry editor will come up
double left click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
double left click on SYSTEM
double left click on CurrentControlSet
double left click on Control
double left click on Class
double left click on {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
look on the right side of the window for upper filters
right click on upper filters
left click delete
windows will then ask you to confirm deletion
click yes
look on the right side of the window for lower filters
if you do not see lower filters, you may be out of luck on this one.
right click on lower filters
left click on delete
windows will then ask to confirm deletion
click yes
Close all the windows that are open
restart the computer

In many cases that solution worked, in some cases setting the system back to a previous time, using system restore, was able to reset the system to the time before the system stopped recognizing the drive.

I want to resore to default setting but have no disk the cpu was a hand me down.

Depending on the manufacturer, the operating system (e.g. Windows XP Home Premium), and the computer model, the Operating system may be restored in one of the following ways:
1. The restore information may be stored on the Restore partition of your hard drive. This partition is usually located on the same hard drive as drive C: but has different letter assigned to it. You must Click on "Computer" or "My Computer" and look for this "Restore" or "System Restore" partition, access it and run the restore program. If your computer doesn't have the Restore partition than use the step below.

2. The operating system may be restored by using a restore CD for the operating system of your computer. You may borrow this CD from someone. After you finish reinstalling your operating system, Microsoft may ask you to enter the product key. Do not enter the product key of the CD you just used, but find Microsoft Operating System product key on the label attached somewhere to the exterior of your computer, and enter this product key exactly as it appears on that label.

Start the computer.
Select the "old" system, and then repeatedly press F8,
until you see the Windows Start-Up Menu (white text over a black background).
Choose Start In Safe Mode with Command Prompt.
At the command-prompt, enter 'FORMAT C:' to "wipe" 100% of the files from the disk-drive.
When it completes, turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on, and boot from those original "System Restore" CDs.
It will load Windows onto your now-empty disk-drive.

The only thing to try now, is to get a Windows install DVD, put DVD in drive and boot from the DVD, then try to install with that, when you get to installing and it asks if you want to Format, do so, format Full NTFS. Then try to proceed to installing. If this too fails then you will need to replace your hard Drive, quite a simple matter.

Missing recovery disk for Composer 5100

The recovery disk is usually stored as a separate partition on the hard disk itself (Mostly in cases of laptop disks), so when ever you purchase laptops with pre-installed Operating System, The very first thing you do is create a CD/DVD recovery disk ie burn the recovery partition on the CD/DVD.
so that you can use the same DVD in case the OS crashes.
In your case as your hard disk was crashed and replaced ask the people from where you purchased the laptop/pc to restore it to the new hard disk, or purchase the Operating System.

hope this clears the doubt

Slow performance caused by unnecessary programs???

If your computer is running really slow, have you thought about cleaning it with windows disk cleaner? If your computer is otherwise working normally and you haven't loaded any programs that your want within the last couple of days you can also clean up your restore points and save loads of disk space. To do this go to Start>programs>accessories>system tools> Disk cleanup and tick the boxes that you want to clean for example tempory files etc then click on the tab that says more options and clean up system restore, it will still keep your most recent restore point. It will ask you if you are sure that you want to do this, click ok or yes. If you haven't done this before it may take a long time to open while it is compressing old files and determine how much space you will gain. But be patient, the longer it takes, the more space you gain because it is locating files that can be deleted. I hope this helps.

Xp boots and hang up on blank screen

Insert the original Windows XP "System Restore" CD-ROM,
and tell your computer to "boot" from it.

Does it boot, and get to a screen that asks you "do you really want to ...", or does it stop at a "blank" screen?

If it "stops", you have a "hardware" problem.
If it "asks", then either:
* your disk-drive has failed, or is about to fail,
* your installed copy of Windows is messed-up, and it cannot complete the "boot" process.

Take your computer to a computer-store, for more trouble-shooting.
