I am trying to do a system recovery on my Compaq Presario SR2050NX in order to give it away. I have tried using the F10 System Recovery function and have also used "Start, All Programs, PC Help &


Recovery/Restoration Disk

Yes, I read what you stated

In order to remove all your personal information; at least in the extent you have indicated; you need the Restoration Disk,
or a Full Installation disk. As in a new genuine copy of Windows.

Restoration Disk is a LOT cheaper than a new genuine copy of Windows.

[Microsoft makes one Master disk. From it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold to the consumer]

Going with information from the US;
The disk is free

The shipping and handling is not

$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Have the Serial Number written down to give to the nice representative.
This is located in the white Service Tag, on the back of the desktop computer.
S/N = Serial Number

Restoration disk installed, when you are asked choose Full Install.
Destructive Installation

Takes the computer back to Day 1 from the factory

All your personal info is gone

Now let's talk a minute
Your personal information isn't really gone. Even with a 'shredder' program that writes 0's and 1's, hundreds of times over the information on the harddrive, the information is STILL retrievable.

FBI and other agencies, have pulled info off of harddrive's that have been used by drug cartel's, that the computer was in a purposely bombed out building.(Drug lord/s did it)

The harddrive's were BADLY burned, but there was still enough info left.
Bye-bye bad guy's.

To TRULY get rid of any personal info on a harddrive, take it out, smash it with a hammer until very flat, and then burn it.
MAYBE this will do it.

What are the chances of someone, who has the know how to remove your old info?




Really?

I need a recovery disk for my Compaq Presario SR2020NX XP media Center 2005. I got a virus and the only way to restore my desktop is to insert a "recovery disk". Do you by chance have one I can...


The Compaq SR2020NX has an on-board system recovery tool that can be used to create recovery disks. Unfortunately, on many of these models it was not clearly stated that it was the user's responsibility to create recovery disks, so many people did not do so.

You might be able to launch the onboard system recovery by tapping the F11 key when the computer is starting up. Some of the HP/Compaq models from this time frame allowed that option, but not all of them.

If the F11 key does not work, you will need to purchase a recovery disk set. HP/Compaq no longer sells them for this model, but I did find a link for a place where one can be purchased, which appears to be legitimate. http://www.hpandcompaq.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage_images.tpl&product_id=4899&category_id=2&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=2&vmcchk=1&Itemid=2

Good luck, and hope this is helpful!

I need a recovery disk for a HP Compaq D51sp2.4


You need the disks from HP the model you have is a EVO d510 SFF you will need the configuration tag number and the serial number. 1-800-227-8164 If they aren't available from HP try a third party by googling d510 recovery disks there may be some third party suppliers for them. The third party are usually a little more expensive.

The recovery discs I made on day 1 will not work. HP doesn't seem to have Recovery Disc Kit anymore. Where can I get the original W-XP ?


Last time I checked you could still get the Restoration Disk, for your HP computer. (Or Compaq, since HP bought out Compaq)

Did you go to HP Support, and click on Contact Us, in the upper left corner of the page?

After you do so, you will be taken to a page that offers you options of contacting them. I advise using the Call option. Nice to speak to a human being!

I would have the serial number for your computer handy. This is either on the back of a Desktop computer, (Next to the Windows Product Key), or up on the side of the computer case.

It's on the bottom of a laptop, in the white Service Tag (s/n is Serial Number)

The last time I called for a Restoration Disk for a Compaq computer from them, it was free. The shipping and handling was not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

The Restoration Disk just has the needed basic Windows files necessary to repair the registry. After you install the disk, you may need to go into BIOS Setup, then to Boot Options, and set the first boot device to CDROM. Sometimes Windows is a 'funny animal', and you have to force it to see the Restoration Disk.

After the computer has booted off of the Restoration Disk, I suggest you click on -> Repair, when the option comes up.

Clicking on Fresh Install, will wipe your harddrive of any downloaded, (or installed by you), programs and applications. It will also wipe off anything have in your My Documents folder. (My Pictures, My Music, My Videos, and documents)

I need a recovery disk for a compaq presario sr1439uk


COMPAQ is now part of HP.
Access:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=469063

and select XP or VISTA.

Sometimes, the Recovery Disks are available for download.
But, sometimes, you have to telephone COMPAQ/HP, and give a credit-card number -- they will ship replacement disks for free, but will charge you $20 for shipping.

Factory image recovery on hp error 0x4001100200001005 when useing the recovery disk to go back to factory only loads up to 33%


I had the same problem with the recovery cd getting to 83% and giving me the 0x4001100200001005 error. I did 2 things. I cleaned the disk it was erroring on and also removed the ethernet cable from the adapter. I have been working for 4 days on this and parsing the internet for answers. Finally it worked. I don't know if it was the cleaning of the disk...which did not look dirty, or the unplugging the network cable.
