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.

How to restore campaq sr1901wm with out a disk?/ i was told with a network key for this compaq i could use the restore disk from a gateway


You can use almost any restore disk to restore the operating system, but you must have a product key for that specific version of windows. Even then, it might not work if the manufacturer has coded that version of Windows to be one of their product keys. Also, even after you do restore the system, you will have to go to the HP (HP bought Compaq) website to download the drivers for your system.

Good Luck,

If you know how ?reset the memory and restart the computer
at the boot press F8 if the menu appears try last known good confiuration that worked if this does not work you need to format and reinstall the os the blue screen is and indication of driver failuer or hardware conflick and if the system.last good config will only work 1 time after that it will wipe out the os and you will have to restore from the restore disk,and the best way to do that is to reformat the drive and do a clean install ,but if you have windows there is a restore mode your disk will say press F2 to restore now

Wtf?? again


Hi. Azrul here. You can get into bios and select to boot up using your CD as your first boot priority.

But if that is not possible, just contact compaq or Helwett-Packard for a restore disk.

I Have a Compaq Pressario sr2013wm , which i preformed a system restore on. But i use a restore disk from a dell computer now the computer will not work any ideas?


Yes. it will not work. Only the restore cd that u created on this machine or supplied by the manufacturer will work. It is because of diffrences in hardware/OS. It is better to have a fresh installation. good luck
