Question about HP Compaq Presario V5000T Notebook
Bought a laptop, got the show computer since they were out of stock. Geek Squad promised to remove all Best Buy stuff ... wipe there stuff out like it had never been there. Got it home, found all kinds of Best Buy stuff but didn't affect functionality, had plenty of space, didn't bother taking it back. REGRET!!! Fast forward two years ... I NEED THE SPACE!!! Don't know what to do. Don't know what I can wipe out & what I need for the computer to work. Can't take it back to store & don't want to pay someone to do something this simple. Please help!! What can I do to get all this stuff off? What exactly do I NEED to keep the computer working??
Use a boot able copy of RIPLinux 6.2 go into your Compact bios (F10 key) and set CDROM as first device to boot up.
Boot 6.2 and execute GRUB loader. Select (Partition #2) and wait.
You will see a Compact screen appear with a restore to factory. Just wait while it reformats partition #1 (yes you will lose all the BB junk).
When done you will have a factory set operating system XP Home or Pro.

Well Colleen, I thank you for writing this as detailed as possible, You can always run a disk cleanup, (Start > My computer > Right click C: > Properties > Disk Cleanup, Under General Tab)
That will get rid of junk, Or you could Defrag the computer
(Start>My computer> Rightclick C: > Properties > Tools Tab > Defragment now)
Defrag will take all sorts of junk in a file and sort them in a folder, giving your computer more memory, You could also manually delete everything by going to the root of it all, Or you could buy more memory.
