I had no idea where to post this, since I'm new, but I hope it's in the right spot...
Anyway, I have an old Compaq Presario 5000. I tried getting it to work the other day, and all it does is shows the Compaq screen, then Windows Me, and then it just goes to my backgroud on my desktop, but in grey. Nothing shows up besides the background. No start menu, or desktop icons. I figured I should just clean everything off of it and start over, but I don't really know how to do that (since I can't get to the start menu). Is there anything you guys suggest? I don't just want to throw it away, and I know Windows Me 2000 is old. I was thinking about upgrading it, if that is at all possible.
