My Compaq Presario 5000 series (year 2001) is running extremely slow. I was told to use the original disc and start it over again. I do not have one. Where can I get one?


what operating system have you got? You can load Windows XP clean on it and download drivers from hp.com . How much Ram have you got in the PC , maybe upgrade RAM?

768 meg is the most you can put in the 5000 ..your system only has 128 meg so 768 would be a considerable improvment .... "crucial.com" is a great company to get reliable memory and information ... here is their page on your computer

Don't do it!!! If you are going to do such an upgrade, buy a PC Case. By the way, you can buy bare bones at Systemax for about $200 and include almost everything needed but the Windows.

Memory upgrade


First step : Make sure the memory you purchased meets the following specifications

"168pin PC133 SDRAM DIMM" which should be easily accessible from wherever you bought it.

If not, then you can find memory here. that the company guarentee's will work with your system. Also - You want to make sure the memory that was in your system to begin with is identical to the memory you are sticking in it to get it to 512MB Systems that are this old with "PC133 SDRAM" are very picky about what kind of ram you stick in them. Make sure wherever you purchase your memory from, has a guarentee that it will work in the make/model of your computer.

Have Windows ME,seems to be outdated. Do not make software for it anymore. Would like to upgrade to Vista.Can't hook up anything to it. Have to be Vista or XP. Which is better for a Compaq Presario 5000


The Compaq Presario 5000 is not powerful enough to run Vista so XP is your best bet. I assume you have the standard 512MB RAM which will be fine for XP Once you outgrow that you'll need to go for more powerful hardware. By that time the new Windows 7 should have been officially released.
