Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
The best way to do this is to do a complete install of XP and wipe (format) your drive of everything else. You will need to back anything up that you want first though. Make sure you format it as NTFS
XP will run slow unless you have at least 512 mb. of ram and a 1Gig. processor. It can run on less but I do not install it on anything less because it will drag the computer down. More than I said is even better for it to run. If you need help loading it let me know. I will try my best to explain to you how to do this. You must already know since you tried already. Just make sure you do a clean install. Do you have the upgrade CD or the Full Version CD?
I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya not a helpful rating. These ratings let me be allowed to help you and others in the future. If you need more help, feel free to keep asking, but keep the original information so I can see it.
