I need to know how to restore my Compaq Presario 2700 to factory setting because it has crashed.


If you have the original recovery disc for the laptop, then I would re-install your operational system to bring it back to factory setting. If you do not have the disc go to www.compaq.com for customer support to see if they have the disc available.

I have an old Presario 5000 series PC, hard disk crashed, bought a new hard disk and tried to use the Quick Restore CD's to Restore to Factory settings. Can't seem to boot up from Disc 1 of the Quick...


For boot from disk first you have to set first boot device option in BIOS.
for that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom.
then save settings then insert recovery diks in rom then check.
Then it boot from disk if your disk and cd.dvd rom works fine.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

Dell inspiron 6000 windows crashed


Oh boy... without disks, theres not much that can be done. the OS disk has diagnostics and repair capabilities. If your computer does not have a restore partition, then your best option is call Dell and ask for restoration software. it will likely set you back a couple hundred bucks, but you might be able to negotiate a lower price.

I have a compaq presario v-2000 and want to restore


Unfortunately, without the restore disc, she will not be able to do a system restore. You could mail her the disc overnight or something via USPS or Fed Ex.

I hope this helps :)

Best Regards,

James

My Compac Presario F700 will not come up, I just get a blank screen even in safe mode. When I press F10 it runs through programs and stops at crcdisk.sys? How do I reset system?


If you have the software disks that came with the computer you can use those to restore the system. Or use the windows installation disc to repair/restore windows.

Are certain restore disks interchangeable?


Unfortunately you cant use a vista restore disk for a XP operating system.

You could install vista on it and then use XP compatibility mode for whatever programs you want to run. Simply right click on the program and select the compatability tab..change to XP.

System restore disk to download


I understand that you want to download Restore discs to download.


I regret to inform you that the Restore Discs are not available to download. I am afraid that you need to contact HP to get the discs. They will provide you weblink to purchase the discs online.
