1. you can contact HP for a new system restore disc
2. you can purchase a windows operating system disc

If you choose number 2 , you may need to download drivers for any hardware that is not in the windows driver data base on the operating system CD

How do I set a Compaq Presario SR1403WM back to Factory settings


Step 1:
While many problems with Compaq Presario computers can be solved by less drastic means, there are times when the best course of action is to set the computer back to its original factory default state. Issues with persistent viruses or spyware often require this drastic step, as do problems with a corrupt operating system. Learning how to restore your computer to its original state is an important troubleshooting tool.

Shut down your computer and restart it. Watch for the Compaq logo, then press the "F1" key to enter setup. Press the right arrow within setup to go to the Boot menu. Press the down arrow to access the "Boot Device Priority" option. Change the first boot device to CD-ROM by pressing the down arrow until "CD-ROM" is displayed. Eject the CD tray and place the recovery CD that came with your computer into the tray. If you do not have a recovery CD, you can order one directly from Hewlett Packard. Shut down and restart the computer. The Presario will automatically boot from the CD and begin the recovery process. Select the operating system your computer shipped with. Many Compaq recovery CDs support multiple operating systems, so be sure to choose the operating system your computer shipped with. Insert the operating system CD when prompted. Enter the license key for the operating system when prompted. The license key is typically found on a small tag located on the top or side of the computer.

Will an optical drive from cq62 fit mine?


NO.

I sort of see your reasoning, but NO.
HP Compaq DC7700 Ultra-Slim Desktop PC, and Compaq Presario CQ62 series of Notebook PC DVD burner drive?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-For-Compaq-Presario-CQ62-TS-L633-SATA-CD-RW-DVD-RW-Multi-Burner-Laptop-Drive-/300725349252?pt=US_CD_DVD_Blu_Ray_Drives&hash=item4604a0ab84

Until I compared both units I would have stated NO.

Now that I have THANK YOU. I just learned something,

http://www.amazon.com/HP-Compaq-DC7700-DC7800-DVD-ROM/dp/B004574PEG

Referring back to the photo view, of the Compaq Presario CQ62 series of Notebook PC's DVD burner drive shown, the REAR view shows the connectors for the SATA power cable, and SATA data cable.

The connectors use the same L-shape design, and size that a SATA unit for a desktop computer, would use.

Case design looks to be similar also.

I believe you are Correct.

Clean the drive so it can be put back to orginal factory


http://h18000.www1.hp.com/cpq_support.html

Compaq / Hewlett Packard Support Website. Make sure you have correct Compaq model (ie: Presario 5000). You should have a partition on the hard drive markes "system restore" or the likes. If not, you should have the O.E.M. (CD-ROM) that came with the system that will also let you re-install the operating system. A word of caution, if you try and re-install the O/S without the orgional CD-ROMS you may not have all the correct hardware drivers.

I cannot download any cd or dvd on my Compaq Resario SR217ONX. Why?


Hmm...Something may be wrong really!

Are u able to copy from any folder within the hard disk?

Some viruses / malwares are preventing the copy function of the windows from working properly!!!
(So, try some good antivirus)

Also...one more info for u
   1. u must have sufficient disk space for copying files to hard disk:)
   2. if file system is FAT32, u may mot be able to copy files of size more than 4GB
   3. Try updating the firmware of the CD/DVD drive
   4. Try coming back here with more clues to ur problem :)

have a nice day

Tower fell over and won't work now


there's a partition on your hard drive that has a recovery section. it is from here that you create "start up" disks my wife has a presario sr1503wm and we created a set of ten start up, recovery disks for it. you can go to the compaq-hp site and download the drivers necessary to boot up the machine using a different computer. I think compaq offers six floppies to get you going again.
