I need a recovery disk for my Compaq Presario SR2020NX XP media Center 2005. I got a virus and the only way to restore my desktop is to insert a "recovery disk". Do you by chance have one I can...


The Compaq SR2020NX has an on-board system recovery tool that can be used to create recovery disks. Unfortunately, on many of these models it was not clearly stated that it was the user's responsibility to create recovery disks, so many people did not do so.

You might be able to launch the onboard system recovery by tapping the F11 key when the computer is starting up. Some of the HP/Compaq models from this time frame allowed that option, but not all of them.

If the F11 key does not work, you will need to purchase a recovery disk set. HP/Compaq no longer sells them for this model, but I did find a link for a place where one can be purchased, which appears to be legitimate. http://www.hpandcompaq.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage_images.tpl&product_id=4899&category_id=2&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=2&vmcchk=1&Itemid=2

Good luck, and hope this is helpful!

Need a reboot disk for compaq presario 1278 series cm2070 model 1456VQLIN does not have an OS


Most Compaq's come with what is known as "reimaging" or the OS already installed on a partitioned part of your harddrive (which is locked) unless you go in and have your computer do a System Recovery to factory settings...
Know that if this is your only option, then you will loose everything you have on your computer up until you got the error message...

Ok, first things first..
What were you doing before you got this error?
Are you able to boot to your start up screen and get to System Restore? If not and all else is lost, then follow the following instructions

1. Restart the computer "Press key, it's up above your 0 for recovery" message is displayed
on the screen. Then select Recovery Manager. Then your Recovery Manager will come up

2. Choose Advanced Options.
3. Choose System recovery, and then click Next. It will instruct you to reset your computer to Factory Settings...all you need to do is follow the Recovery Manager Wizard options and click next and next and so on... let me know if this works....

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..

If you have compressed the hard disk drive using the Compress drive to save disk space option under the Properties menu for your hard disk drive and have performed a non-destructive recovery or a system recovery, the following error message may appear: NTLDR is compressed. Press CRTL-ALT-DEL to restart. This error message is resolved by following these steps:
  1. Insert the HP Recovery Tools CD or Compaq Recovery Tools CD into the CD drive on the computer and restart the computer.Wait for the HP Recovery Tools CD or Compaq Recovery Tools CD window to open.
  2. Select Run Microsoft Recovery Console , click Next , and then follow the onscreen instructions. NOTE: If you are unable to open a recovery console, follow the Alternate steps .
  3. Press R to repair the Windows XP installation using Recovery Console.

  8. At the prompt, type: exit
  9. Press the Enter key and immediately remove all discs or diskettes from the computer to allow the computer to restart.The error message should be resolved.
Alternate steps NOTE: These alternate steps work for HP and Compaq desktop PCs with Windows XP and a recovery partition. (M0st HP and Compaq PCs with Windows XP have a recovery partition on the hard disk drive.)

  1. Turn on the computer. When the initial logo screen appears, press the F10 key repeatedly until a message about starting recovery appears.
  2. At the Recovery screen, click Advanced Options and then press the Alt and D keys at the same time to go to a command prompt.

  7. At the command prompt, enter the drive letter followed by a colon (:). For example, H:
  8. At the command prompt, enter the following: cd \windows\system32
  9. At the command prompt, type the following: compact ntldr /u <the drive letter>:\ntldr For example if the drive letter was H, you would type: compact ntldr /u h:\ntldr
