Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
A Repair may fix this
if you have an installation CD not just a recovery CD?
A repair won't lose any data, other than Service Pack (if not on CD), any Windows Updates and unsigned drivers, which will need to be re-installed afterwards.
Stay offline and do a repair dnt go online without a firewall enabled. After that you install all Critical Updates next.
How to Repair
1.Boot the computer from your Windows CD.
2.When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen press [Enter] to start the Windows Setup.
Note: Do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", you Do Not want to load Recovery
3.Accept the Licence Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
4.Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press [R] to start the repair. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.
5.Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will then continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.
if the problem continues after doing this then change the ram you are using that meana the ram should be part of the problem
i think this should solve the problem
