Ok I goofed and need help to fix my error
Have a compaq laptop - given to me because her daughter locked her out of it - so a free laptop. I have no disks.
Attempted a reinstall of windows XP - it said I needed to erase what was there so I did then it wanted me to re partion and it named this partion as f:
It went thru the windows reinstall and them presented a screen for a compaq system restore to orignal settings so I choose this. Now once the laptop boots it goes to a blank screen w/ just a blinking cursor. Can anyone help me?

Thanks, Suzy

What partitions do you have now and how big are they? You would need C: for the Windows and D: for your data, no more. What are E: and F: for? BTW, this is an XP forum question.

Suzy:

Turn that laptop upside down and look at the sticker on it.

What is the model name(Presario or something else)?

What is the model number?
