I have a compaq presario 5000 with Pentium III, 384 MB RAM, 40.0 GB hard drive and Windows XP Pro. Model is 5BW284. It was purchased Dec, 2000.
Let me know if I need to include a serial#.
For some reason, I had the hard drive on the FAT 32 file system. I recently converted the C drive to NTFS. I am already seeing a significant difference in reliability and stability.
I tried to convert the D drive to NTFS also. But the command prompt screen replied asking for the "volume label." Where the hell do I find the volume label? I looked all over the system for it. Apparently it won't let me convert to NTFS unless I find this label.
