    When you boot into Windows normally, press Ctrl + Alt + Del.

    Click File.

    Click "New Task".

    In the box, type explorer.exe and hit Enter.

    This should popup the taskbar.

    ---------------------------------------------------

    Next, Click Start.

    Click All Programs.

    Within this subfolder, you should be able to find an "HP" or "Compaq" folder -- within that, look for an option to create a Recovery Disk.

    Once you find this, launch the software and create a Recovery Disk.

    Once you've finished this, please let me know.

    The Compaq Presario C500 series laptop has 44 models listed at the HP/Compaq support site.

    Advise us what the product number(P/N) and model number(M/N) on the sticker is so we can determine the exact model you have.

    The C500 series appears to be about 6 years old.
