If the computer has or had a "Certificate of Authenticity" on the bottom, something that has the Windows XP key on it, then you have a license to run a copy of Windows on that machine. One way would be to go to eBay and buy a Compaq restore CD. You might have a hard time finding one that's made specifically for your computer.

There may be an easier method though. Many laptops have a complete recovery disc stored on the hard drive, which you can use to burn your own copies. If you follow this and find the Recovery Creator program, your laptop is one of these:

Click Start--> All Programs --> System Recovery --> PC Recovery Disc Creator .

If you don't find that, then another tactic would be to contact Compaq. Most companies will have copies that you can purchase for a fee. CLICK HERE TO GO TO COMPAQ'S SITE TO BUY ONE.

good luck.

Hi!! I have a Compaq Presario that a friend gave me a while back that used to work and start up..but it doesn't now and I haven't been on it in months. It keeps saying that: Windows could not


The "Win32 config" system folder and the files within it are crucial to the Windows Operating System's stability. If any of these files become damaged or corrupted, you likely receive error messages. Fortunately, Microsoft puts the files to repair these problems on the installation CD that comes with your operating system. The original install disk offers a quick way to repair the system. Damaged files are replaced in only a few minutes.

Insert your Windows CD into the computer drive. Restart your computer. On startup, look for the message, "Press any key to boot from CD" and press "Enter" on your keyboard. You should see the blue "Welcome to Setup" screen. Click "Enter" on the "Welcome to Setup" screen. Read the "Microsoft Software License Terms," then press "F8." Use your arrow keys, go down and select the Windows installation you want to repair. Press "R" for "Repair." Windows will now start to restore the Win32 System to your computer.

It says i need a windows installation disc and it wont boot i dont have the disc what can i do


You could buy the installation disc for Windows 7 and upgrade if you haven't done so already.
I understand from the web page specifications for this computer that it came with Vista, originally.

My laptop is dead.hard disc ok,ram ok,battery ok


Hi,
sounds like you need to replace the motherboard. It maybe cheaper to buy another laptop. Go to Compaq website and inquire on their discussion forums. Check out the motherboard price on HP and ebay. Google is your friend!
Cheers,
Steve
PS You could dismantle the unit and see if their is any visible damage, but motherboards tend to be difficult to repair.
