You can buy a copy of the CD by contacting HP from website, or calling the phone number in laptop documentation, that is the easy way.

The other way is using a generic windows CD corresponding to the licence printed on the sticker at the bottom of your computer. You will need to download and install drivers afterward.

Remove hp recovery


That would not be wise, if you remove the recovery partition it will be impossible to reload windows, unless you made a backup recovery disc.

Locate the factory image drive


The Factory Image "D" drive (part of the computers hard drive) is the recovery partition It is sectioned off from the main "C" drive on the computer, you need to save your programs to the C drive. The D drive only has enough space on it to hold the recovery information (an image of the factory settings) and little else, you will need to use recovery discs to get the information that you saved to the D out of there since you can go into the D drive and delete anything.

Recovery drive


Usually (since drive d is another partition) you would boot to it by means of startup, the laptop should say something about, to enter a menu here press F6 or something similar. So when your computer turns on, press the f12, or f8 or f2 keys and see if it gives you a menu (the recovery option would most likely be in there). Beware to PLEASE backup your files before formating and turning everything back to as it was :) . Also, you should seriously consider asking Compaq for a recovery DVD, they are usually free and they are livesavers if something goes wrong with the partition on your lappy.

Prior to re-installing your OS, backup all your documents..
Insert your recovery disk cd on the cd rom drive and reboot your pc.

As it reboots press any key to continue so it will boot from cd and delete the partition, create a partition and active it.

Then install the OS which goes to C:\ drive. After the installation is complete install all the drivers and the applications. You can go to the manufacturer's website and download others drivers as needed.

Activate Windows then go to Microsoft Update

Recover problem


This can happen if the Recovery Partition is corrupted or the Hard Drive is bad.
 First, I recommend you to check the Hard Drive using the Hard Drive test utility available in the BIOS by following the steps below :
Start or restart the notebook and start tapping the F10 key.
This will get you the BIOS Setup window.
In this. go to the Diagnostics or Tools tab where you can find the Hard Drive test utility.
Select using the Up/Down arrow keys and press enter to start the test.
Make sure that you complete the Full test which may take around 80 minutes to complete.
If the Test result is Pass, we can come to a conclusion that the issue is with the Recovery Partition which is corrupted.
You need to purchase the Recovery Disks for your Notebook in this situaiton.
Contact HP Chat Support to get the exact link to order the Recovery Disks for your Notebook.
However, if the Test Result is Fail, you need to take backup of the data in the Notebook and replace the Hard Drive with a new one.
Hope this helps...
