The Compaq Presario 5000 series came with Windows Millenium operating system. So, your Quick Restore CDs are really intended for WinME. You only upgraded your preinstalled operating system to WinXP. Upgrade it to WinXP again. You will not retrieve your data or files anymore. Sorry, "Full Restore" will erase all your files.
My hard drive crashed last week. When my daughter used the restore cd, Windows Me came up. The computer I have is a compaq, 5421SR 5000 series. It came with XP and the restore cd's. I also had pictures etc. which were lost. How can I get XP back and posssible my pictures?
