There is a small hole on the CD-Rom you can straighten out a safety pin and push it in there. It will eject the CD. Hopefully it will then fix your problem.

How to reset compaq presario to factory settings keeps going to repair computer


Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

or

If your Compaq Presario has major issues, restoring it to factory defaults may be the best course of action.


There are a number of situations when completely restoring a computer to its factory settings is the best solution, including resolving virus infections and corrupt operating system files.


Back up all of your user data to a USB thumb drive, external hard drive or other device.

The restore process will destroy all of your data, so this is vital to do.


Turn on your computer and open your CD or DVD drive.

Place the restore CD that came with your Presario into the drive and restart your PC. If you do not have a restore CD, you can contact Compaq to order one.


Allow the computer to boot up from the restore CD.

You will see a series of messages guiding you through the restoration process, as well as several warnings that all data on the computer will be erased.


Continue the restoration process, and follow the prompts as needed.

You may need to locate the license key for your version of Windows; that key should be located on a label on the top of the computer case.


Hope this helps

How to burn mp3-cd disc to cd-rom


the best way to burn an Mp3 disk is to pick which Mp3 files you want to burn and put them into a folder (the 2 best ways to know if the files are Mp3 are either to mouse over the files or to right click on the file and click properties) then insert your chosen CD or DVD into your drive. when autoplay comes up tell it to take no action or cancel. then click on my computer. then open your Mp3 folder and press Ctrl + A. right click on any file and then click copy. go back into my computer and right click on your CD Drive (usually (D:) ) and click paste. then Click on the CD Drive and find the button that says burn wait for it to burn and you should be done.

Presario SR1123WM won't restore to factory


If Compaq doesn't have one no one else will either.
  Have you tried the recover clean up utility? Available as a download (link below)  
My guess is that if it will not restore something is wrong with the hard drive. Have you contacted HP to ask them what it means? 
Another option is to buy and install windows and download the drivers from Compaq/HP.Same link

MY COMPAQ PRESARIO 5000 WILL NOT OPEN WINDOWS XP.


Does your desktop comeup and give any time before it shutdowns, say 1 minute or something like that,
You can log into safe mode and do system restore by pressing F8 once you power on the computer, but you need to keep on pressing till you see the safe mode option.

Disc full alert


Firts of all, your D: drive is usually your CD: Drive. typically the Hard drive is the C: drive.

Sooooooo.... Thats is kind of self explanitory. Save to your Hard Drive not your CD drive.

If your trying to Burn a CD then your trying to fit to much data on one disk. CD's hold about 700MB or 80min of music.

If it keeps filling up with random files and thing, then you may have a virus thats replicating itself, run your virus scan. back up your files to an external drive or burn to a disk if possible and re-install windows if the virus cant be removed by your Ant-virus.

Removal


take the side panel off the case. remove the power supply cable (4 pin molex) Remove the data cable (flat cable) you might need to snap off the front cover. remove the screws that hold the cd in the tower.
