I purchased a Compaq 5000 Series 5BW250 Desktop almost six years ago, and it's been running fine until recently. The computer seemed to be slowing down, and I decided to have someone back up my files, wipe the hard drives, and re-install Windows ME. The problem was that the Recovery CD that came with the Compaq could've done that for me. The hard drive was partitioned into C and D, and from what I've read on other sites so far, the restore files were on the D Drive which was completely wiped. Now I don't have the files needed to perform a "Factory Restore" on my Compaq. Aside from the Recover CD, I don't have any other CDs that came with the computer.
Where can I get the files that were on the D Drive that I need in order to perform that Factory Restore?
Thanks in advance for any help offered.
