go to hp's site, lookup the model and review the documentation for what options are available.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Did you try booting into safe mode? Were the recovery disks ever made? If not, there should be a utility on the All Programs menu which will allow you to create them. I'm not sure if it will work in safe mode though?

What do you mean there's no start menu? Could it have been set to auto-hide the taskbar?
