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.

Can i use a compaq system restore disk on an emachine? I don't have the boot up disks that i was supposed to create when i got this emachine, but i do have some old compaq ones, both use windows xp os...


You cannot use the restore disks from those other systems to do a restore. Even though you may be able to extract the XP install files, you won't be able to authenticate it because the disk is OEM and reads data off of the system it is supposed to install on.

If you have an emachine, contact them for the restore disk, or search the internet for a restore disk for your model. Some people sell them, even on ebay.

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,

Presario SR1123WM won't restore to factory


If Compaq doesn't have one no one else will either.
  Have you tried the recover clean up utility? Available as a download (link below)  
My guess is that if it will not restore something is wrong with the hard drive. Have you contacted HP to ask them what it means? 
Another option is to buy and install windows and download the drivers from Compaq/HP.Same link

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
