If the computer is under warranty still I would contact Compaq for a replacement drive.

Generally when the drive door is stuck open it is not a good sign, the drive door is gear operated and it opened and does not close with light touch, then there is a problem with the drive mechanism.

If it is out of warranty then you can purchase a new drive for the computer at a local retailer or online.
the drive appears to be a standard IDE drive.

Looking where i can find the restore disk for a HP Compaq Presario SR1103WM please help me


Telephone HP, and order a set of the "System Restore" CD-ROM disks.
Probably about $20, plus $20 for overnight-courier delivery.

Trying to restore my computer back to factory defaults without recovery disk


You can press F10 and you will get the option to take the computer to system console and then follow the steps and if you have the CD with you then follow the steps below

1 Shut down your computer and restart it. Watch for the Compaq logo, then press the "F1" key to enter setup.
2 Press the right arrow within setup to go to the Boot menu. Press the down arrow to access the "Boot Device Priority" option. Change the first boot device to CD-ROM by pressing the down arrow until "CD-ROM" is displayed.
3 Eject the CD tray and place the recovery CD that came with your computer into the tray. If you do not have a recovery CD, you can order one directly from Hewlett Packard.
4 Shut down and restart the computer. The Presario will automatically boot from the CD and begin the recovery process.
5 Select the operating system your computer shipped with. Many Compaq recovery CDs support multiple operating systems, so be sure to choose the operating system your computer shipped with.
6 Insert the operating system CD when prompted. Enter the license key for the operating system when prompted. The license key is typically found on a small tag located on the top or side of the computer.

My Compaq Presario SR1103wm doesn't have cd-rom insalled. Or so the system tells me,I believe it because I can't get it to read one single disk.How do I install it?


If your not familiar with the insides of your cpu. You can purchase an external cd/dvd/rw drive and hook it up. usually with a usb or supplied cable. To install depending on type and brand just follow the instruction that come with it. They do work very well.

Lost factory disks for my Compaq Persario sr1103wm know were I could get a new one?


Most HP and Compaq desktop PCs that ship with Windows Vista and XP do not come with recovery discs. Instead, they use a partition on the hard drive. To access a hard drive recovery, turn on the computer and repeatedly press F10 (XP) or F11 (Vista) until a Recovery window opens.

Record music to cd


You need to get a program to burn your music to a disc. I recommend a program called "DeepBurner", it is free and very simple to use.
