I have just gotten a Compaq Presario, S4020WM, it is used and but not fired up for 2 or 3 years. I was able to download XP3 which surprised me because I couldn't update it. I tried to put IE7 on also and it failed. When I go to Microsoft Update site and click or either express or custom it searches as long as you let it and if I try to close IE or go to another web page it locks up and all I can do is shut the computer off,I can do that much. I can let it search and open another IE. It is about the same with downloading IE7, I can get up to the install page and it locks up, searches as long as you let it. Yesterday I had both going and nothing. I am in the proess of doing a Compaq recovery right now. Anyone have any advice?
