I suggest you use the Restoration Disk.

Start your computer put the disk in your optical drive tray.
When asked click on Non-Destructive Restore. (Repair)

If you click on Destructive Restore, (Full Installation), you will wipe out all personal documents you have saved.

For example:
Files in My Pictures, My Videos, My Music, personal documents you have created, and documents you have downloaded.

Non-Destructive Restore, or Repair, will repair the basic Windows files.

If you do not have the Restoration Disk for YOUR computer, you can order it from HP Support. (HP bought out Compaq)

In the USA there is no charge for the Restoration Disk.
The shipping and handling is Not free, however.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

This is the toll-free number to call in the USA, (24 hours a day, 7 days a week),

I am not familiar with support overseas, however here is the HP Support page for Worldwide,

Write down the Product Number, and Serial Number from your computer, to give to the nice person on the phone.
You'll find it in the white Service Tag.

The Service Tag will be located on the back of your computer tower, or up on the side.

More info regarding this,

(Left-click on the + sign next to each heading, to expand it.
Example: Look on the product identification labels)

Flashing bios

I really don't support or believe in flashing the BIOS, but I will say that doing so will NOT make if faster in way.

Just be careful, people keep bricking and posting they have a dead system.

Good Luck

I have a Compaq Presario C501NR 32 bit notebook. My question is how can I use disk cleanup to free up 5.51GB of disk space? What can and can't I delete without messing up my system?

Using disk cleanup will delete temp files, cookies, internet files but that will not be nowhere close to 5.51 GB, you can use disk clean up to remove windows componets as well. You will have to decide what you need and don't use such as games, etc.

Is there a particular reason why you need so much space freed up?

That's a very nice and brilliant idea to have an intact data you must have a back up data. So my recommendation please repair or it is advisable to re-install your operating system to ensure your operating system will be 100% operational. Make sure you have your installer in operating system and your laptop drivers.

Lap top dell inspiron 6400, cant get into windows,

Have you tried doing a winXP repair:

XP repair
When you boot with the Dell Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If the repair does not fix it :

If you have documents you need,you would have to set the hard drive in an enclosure and copy the files over. Then you can run the Dell recovery disk . This will set it up as when it came from Dell.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
