The best thing would be to do a fresh install of the operating system,Do you have an OS disk?

    Default behavior of Windows XP is that it automatically logs in if there is only one user account in the system and is not password protected.



    Here is a way to make XP automatically login to a user account.


    • Click Start, Run and type CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2

    • Uncheck Users must enter a username and password to use this computer

    • Click Apply.

    • Now, fill-up your user information and password there.

    By default, it shows Administrator. You need to input your username and password.

From where i can download HP Restore plus cd for dx2200


The restore plus cd only formats the drive and makes a partition, it does not load the OS or repair it.

The set up disk will do the same thing when you reinstall the OS, you can format and make a extra partition if you want, but the OS auto makes a small partition for the booting record.

If you have a problem you need the set up disk or to use the HP backup and recovery manger.

I want to restore my hp compaq dx2200 microtower to factory setting but i lost the cd what can i do to restore it for free


Check to see if there is a recovery partition on your hard drive. Usually this will be hidden unless you know where to look for it. Here are the steps:
  1. Go to Start Panel
  2. Right-Click my computer
  3. Click manage
  4. This will open a seperate window with the title computer management on top of it
  5. In the left pane you want to look under storage and select DIsk Management
  6. This will give you a snapshot of your hard drive, if your hard drive is split into more than one partition and that partition is at the least 5-8 Gb, chances are you have a recovery partition. Run this check then let me know what you find
If you do have one, then let me know and I will walk you thru the process of booting from this partition

Trying to restore back to factory what can i


When you purchased the computer, you should have received a set of "System Restore" CD-ROMs. Use them.

If you have lost them, telephone HP/COMPAQ, and order a replacement set of "System Restore" CD-ROMs. The cost could be $20 for the set, and $20 for courier-shipping. When the disks arrive, use them.

P.S. Backup all your music/files/bookmarks/contacts before doing the "factory" reset.
