Yes, if what you are inquiring about is the original Operating System, and all softwares that you received on purchase that may have come pre-installed on the computer etc.

Some of the newer computers that you buy may not come with any CD's at all, and they have special products installed that allows you to fix problems with your computer from them, rather than having to use the CD's like earlier computers. However if these products are not helpful the Manufacturer will send you the original softwares on CD or DVD to assist in repair your computer.

**Some of the manufacturers may charge around $30 to get the disks.

Compaq presario system recovery


Hi,

When the initial blue HP screen appears, press the F10 key repeatedly until a recovery menu appears. The progress indicator that first appears does not indicate that a recovery is taking place. The progress indicator represents the time before the recovery process is started.

When the Recovery screen appears, click Next, and then click Yes to perform a normal, non-destructive recovery.

To perform a destructive recovery, click Advanced, and then click Yes.



CAUTION: A destructive recovery will format the hard drive. This will delete all the information on the hard drive and reinstall Windows XP and the original software that came with the computer.

After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup.


NOTE: It may take a long time to complete Windows setup. This time varies and may take over an hour, depending on the amount of files that were stored in the user account folders (Like My Documents and the Desktop.

Note:Dont foregt to backup your important files/documents.
Hope this helps !
Thanks..

My system did an automatic update. Now I get a message that says that my backweb-137903.exe has been moved and so my HP center does not load. I looked for the file but it is not present on my PC. I also...


This error message probably occurred, because a spyware removal application incorrectly detected the Updates from HP Connections or Compaq Connections client software (developed by BackWeb Technologies), as spyware and improperly removed it. Since only part of the client software was removed, the errors displays because the software cannot fully open when Windows starts. Updates from HP or Compaq Connections is a messaging service that comes pre-installed on HP and Compaq desktop computers. The service provides product notices, support updates, tips, and special offers specifically for your model of HP or Compaq PC. If you no longer want to use Updates from HP or Compaq Connections, HP or Compaq Connections can be uninstalled through Add/Remove programs. If you still want to use HP or Compaq Connections to receive information regarding your PC, complete the following steps: CAUTION: Performing a System Recovery replaces system files and original software with the files that originally came with the PC. This process may move or remove certain files, like those stored in My Documents. Before performing a System Recovery backup important files and the files stored in the My Documents folder.Be prepared to reinstall software that was not originally included with the PC. You will also need to reconfigure an Internet Connection and obtain all critical Windows Updates, Virus definition updates, and anti-spyware updates. To resolve this error, reinstall the Updates from HP/Compaq Connections client software by performing a standard recovery:
  1. Remove all connections from the PC except keyboard, mouse, monitor and power cable. If any internal hardware such as a video card, or sound card has been added, they should be removed or disconnected.
  2. Restart the computer and press the F10 repeatedly after the logo screen appears.
  3. Click Next when prompted.
  4. Read and respond to the screens to recover the computer.
After the computer is recovered and you have completed the setup, you can do any of the following items to prevent the error message from displaying:
  • Adjust the settings in the spyware removal application to bypass the Updates from HP or Compaq Connections client software.
  • You can uninstall the Updates from HP or Compaq Connections client software before using your spyware removal application: Uninstall Updates from HP or Compaq Connections client software by clicking Start , Control Panel , Add/Remove Programs , Updates from HP/Compaq Connections , and clicking the Remove button. NOTE: If you remove the Updates from HP or Compaq Connections client software, you should visit the product support page for your PC model, HP Support and Drivers Search , for the latest information and software updates.
HP does not consider HP or Compaq Connections spyware software. If spyware removal software detects BackWeb as spyware and you would still like to remove HP or Compaq Connections, it should not be removed through the Spyware removal software. Instead, uninstall BackWeb using Add/Remove Programs as shown above.

What is setting the pc back to factory settings mean?


2 WAYS

Restore default factory settings in setup - Only recover the seetings of your motherboard (date and time, pc health, etc)

Restore Software factory defaults - All hard drive is reinstalled, original software of Dell. Programs like MS Office, all of your data have to be reinserted in the computer.

I didnt understand the "over the phone".

See ya
