If what you want to do is order discs to format your computer and reinstall Windows, then yes. Call 1 800 HP INVENT and let them know that you'd like to order a set of recovery discs. They'll probably want your serial number which is usually located on the back of the computer.

How to formate compaq presario5000


In order to format your PC all you have to do is boot from a source other than your hard drive so the drive can be erased. Typically you can use ANY windows install disk/cd if you have one laying around the house. In the case that you dont you could use a bootable cd like Ultimate boot cd.

 

Heres the link to it ...

I HAVE A COMPAQ HP DX6120 AND I DON'T KNOW HOW TO OPEN THE BIOS . I NEED TO FORMATE MY COMPUTER AND I HAVEN'T CD BACK UP THANKS FOR YOUR HELP


You can get into the BIOS using the F2 or the DEL button. You need to keep tapping it as soon as you turn the computer on.

To Format the computer you would need an Operating System Disk. Like the windows XP /Vista /Windows 7 disk...

You need to boot from any of these disks and then you will be able to format the computer.

I installed system mechanic professional and hit the drive scrubber button and wiped out my hard drive completely. i tried to install widows vista and i it won't allow it to install. i get a file error...


In that case it affects the file system of your hard drive that's why it fails the windows vista installation. In order to fix it you need to delete the partition of your hard drive and create a new one using a partition manager software.
If you can connect your hard drive into another computer you can perform a disk partition using the Disk Management (In Windows XP: Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Storage > Disk Management)

To help you with the procedure on "How to use Disk Management."

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000

Using Disk Management, after creating a partition in your drive, proceed to formatting.

I need to know how to instal the operating system on my Compaq presario 5000. It says no operating system found, & i don't remember how to instal one. can someone please help me out?


what operating system are you trying to install.
If windows. You need the disk. Then when you switch on the computer you hold f12 or f8.(should display on the bottom of sreen)this will take you into the bios. you need to change boot order to boot from disk. Then you have to format hard drive etc. this can be quite tricky to explain. From this point i think your best option at the minute is to type what operating system you are installing into youtube. theres tons of people showing you how to install operating systems

How do i format my hard drive on my old compaq 686 465mhz machine running xp sp2.Cant seem to get it to recognize f11, or other keys to get it to system prompt outside of windows.


This link will take you to Dell there you can make a boot disk you might have to change boot order to floppy drive first. This disk will give you the option to format fat32 or NTSF. Run fdisk to check the how your disk is partitioned.

Compaq restore cd


Hi mithz.
I'm not you people.
(Please keep track of the user who you ask a question too).

When you installed windows 2000, (If you formatted the entire drive during install), you might have taken out the small partition that holds data for a system restore. No version of windows likes
you going backwards. In order for you're system restore CD's to work you'll need to format the hard disk drive. Windows will not install if Windows 2000 is found on the drive. The fastest way to get Windows 2000 off the drive without deleting any other partitions Compaq installed would be to go to the hard disk drives manufacture's site & download their setup tools/utilities. You'll be able to creat a bootable floppy disk that will function in a dos-like mode out side of windows. You'll be able to format the Windows 2000 partition. Once that is done you will be able to incert the restore CD (s) & install Compaqs windows XP.
You may need to pull the drive in order to see who made the drive. EX; Seagate, Smsung, Maxtor ect. Here is the link for Seagate. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools
Every manufacture has similar bootable floppy software.
Read the instruction provided by the manufacture on how to create the floppy disk & how to run it.

Good Luck!

Restoring OS on presario 5000 series


you need to format the whole hard drive as it's the hidden restore partition that is giving you problems, but you may not be able to format it using the XP cd or restore disk. You may have to use the old FDISK as this may be the only way to restore the hidden partition. You will need a boot disk, see below link for win98 as this is what you will need to fdisk, then follow instructions on bottom link, as it's too long to type in here. http://www.bootdisk.com/ http://www.pcanswers.co.uk/tutorials/default.asp?siteid=8§iontypeid=7&subsectionid=606&pagetypeid=2&articleid=6046&page=2
