Question about HP Compaq nc8230 Notebook

1 Answer

Compaq desktop I installed Windows XP on my Mother-in-laws computer,with my windows set up disk from my dell computer. I tried to activate her Windows, and it ould not let me. I called and they told me that the product ID number that I enterd was the wrong one. They said I needed to contact Compaq and get the right product code. How do I contact them, and why is the prioduct code wrong. Also, just to tell you, this computer came from a large corporation, in case that would have anything to do with it.

Cant use my computer cause i dont have a windows activation key.how do i get one or get past this?


See the package box, or the side casing of you CPU(for desktop) or at the bottom of your laptop a sticker indicating the license of your product or serial key.

If you do not have any of those, then you'll need to buy a new one, try to contact microsoft for more details

Yes you can install another windows on it here are instructions for windows XP they are almost the same for just about all versions of windows past windows 2000.
  1. Start your computer from the Windows XP CD. To do this, insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive or DVD drive, and then restart your computer.

    Note To boot from your Windows XP CD, the BIOS settings on your computer must be configured to do this.
  2. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press any key to start the computer from the Windows XP CD.
  3. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to start Windows XP Setup.
  4. Read the Microsoft Software License Terms, and then press F8.
  5. Follow the instructions on the screen to select and format a partition where you want to install Windows XP.
  6. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the Windows XP Setup.

Claification to my problem with compaq pressario


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.

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.
