I have a Compaq desktop PC , model no. " (AK)

you will have to google the make/model. I recommend you use Gateway instead of compaq as only gateway results show if the model-only is googled. I don't believe that is a compaq, nor does it follow their normal 'naming' schema.

Once you locate the manual you will search it for the BIOS password reset instructions. That model may also have the Hard drive locked, once you are able to enter the BIOS you can follow the manual's instructions to look-for, and if found, clear any Hard drive password.

Note: Clearing the BIOS passwords will have no effect on any Operating System password on your User Account, (if any.)

Where can i locate reboot disc hp compaq presario 2023wm .

Use the above link , and chat online with a customer service rep, give them your compaq model information along with the correct operating system and they can send you one to your home. Hope this helps. Otherwise just format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system again, just make sure you have a good copy of windows xp or vista before you format the hard drive.

Only shows compaq on screen

I work with Compaq computers now and usually your problem points to the hard drive. I know Compaq's will stay on that screen if the hard drive has failed. Try another hard drive would be my suggestion.

Hope this helps.

Error loading operating system

If you take a hard drive for one computer to another the windows wil have to be reinstalled as windows looks at the hardware configuation and if it doesn not match, will not run. If the 20 gb hard is working , reinstall it then using backup software back it up to another hard drive.That will work. Personally I use" Acronis true home" software to change a hard drive but their  are other  wil also work. Some  backup and transfer softwware even come with the replacment hard drives.
