Why is it taking so long to back up files after installing Compaq recovery discs


it might be taking a long time because you have a lot of programs on your computer

try backing up to a dvd you can fit much more on dvd's
"blue screen" you might be running your computer over its limits by not having enough RAM putting to much strain on the CPU
add more ram or uninstall some unnecessary programs
you might be better of doing a full factory restore then back your computer up to dvd'sfrom there


Restart your computer now as soon as you hit the power button keep on holding Alt key & keep on tapping F10 key Alt+F10 it will open the recovery console select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction

(Note:this will erase all datas on the computer)
hope this helps you

Had to replace hard drive. Can't reboot using system restore disks. System recognizes new drive, but error message says disks are not for this computer. Got disks when computer was purchased. No...


You may have just recieved the wrong set of restore discs for your computer. Have you replaced the motherboard in this computer at any point? The discs look for a specific code stored within the motherboard bios to keeps people from using system restore discs to install an operating system on whatever computer they want.

You can try contacting the manufacturer to see if they will send you another set of restore discs. They often charge for these, however, if you explain your situation to them they may send you another set at little to no charge.

Hope this was helpful

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 :)

Claification to my problem with compaq pressario


Hi. Azrul here. Here is 2 of my best solution for your problem:

1. Online support from your PC's manufacturer. Restart your PC using a Windows XP/Vista CD and download all the related drivers for your PC online (you will need your compaq presario model number for this)

2. There is also an option to purchase the restore disc online. Depending on the age of the PC that you purchased, just google for "Compaq" or "Hewlett-Packar"and get the restore disk from there.

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.
Thanks
