We were using windows xp home,,and i need to upgarde it,,what can u suggest???


It depend about your hardware...
If you have new computer (memory, big HDD, good procesor) Windows 7 is good for it.
Windows XP Home has problem with changing languages and it is limited for some network stuff. Windows XP Professional with all update and with AWG or Avira antivirus (free for home use) can be good enough with old hardware.
If you need safe surfing, Linux Mint (based on Ubuntu and Debian) can be the good choice.

I have been given a Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop but it has password that we don't know . It did not come with any type of cds. I need to wipe it clean but how do I restore the windows xp home edition?


Well, here's the bad news. 1) Windows XP is not supported any more by Microsoft. (2) You need the original CD's that previously installed XP on your computer. If you can't get them from the previous owner, then you'll have to try and find some original CD's and reinstall XP on your machine, from scratch. (3) If your computer has what it needs, an option is to install Windows 7 on your computer - it depends how old your computer is and if it has the necessary hardware.

Windows XP Home Edition - No Drivers.


vswright is right, you have to make a restore disk when you are happy that that system is running properly (this called system back up and restore) go to the HP support website (HP now own Compaq)
and enter the make and model of the pc and download the device drivers you need, if you experience any problems, get back to us

Windows XP OEM OS


Yes, you have to purchase a new copy of Windows XP... Or alternatively you can try a freeware operating system such as UBUNTU. It does basically the same stuff your Windows did, just with a little more flair! http://www.ubuntu.com/
