Re: system restore disk for HP compaq Presario 1700 help
Hi, you may need to set your laptop to boot from the cd/dvd. you will need to enter the bios and check the boot priority. power the laptop as soon as you power on press either F2 or F10 to enter the bios (you have to be pretty quick with the F2 button). once in the bios look for the heading BOOT or BOOT PRIORITY F5 or F6 willchange the boot order.
hope this helps

Compaq and HP are having issues with certain model computers, mostly boot failure and not recognising the wireless card. Go to the website and see if your model is listed.They are doing a free one time fix for these models, even if out of warranty.
Many things can cause a computer to bog down over time, including how well it was maintained, how often disk clean ups and defrags were performed. All Windows updates installed. Anti Virus kept updated. Too many programs loading when the computer starts. Unnecessary services running. Spyware, etc.
If you want a well performing laptop it would be best to start with fresh install of Windows.
