well i've been trying to help a neighbor out with her computer,where everytime she starts it up, it'll go through the process stating compaq with a little loading bar,then that blue screen appears. Also tried it in safe mode and it does the same thing. She also doesn't have a recovery disk. The computer is a compaq deskpro with Windows 2000 pro also says Windows NT workstation 4.0. that she doesn't have a disk is there anyway download one w/o having to buy? any other option here? Also with taking computers apart and together I have no idea how to do that,if something was wrong inside.

If you can get the message from the blue screen, the would be a great help. Normally you can contact Compaq/HP and after verifying ownership, they'll send you a disk for a nominal fee. Your operating system might be too old and not supported anymore. You'd have to call and ask

Hello,

You can solve problem of blue screen by formatting and reinstalling your operating system.. Make sure that you have backed up your important data before formatting your computer system otherwise you are left with nothing. If still problem does not solve, then remove un-used programs and software from your computer system..

Hope the information works for you.
