Serial Number Issue

When I attempt to install my system disk it ask for the Compaq computer product serial number.  I located the serial number on the back of the laptop...but the program says it is not valid.  I have tried with the caps lock on and off.  Could you please help me?!? Could the serial numbr be incorrect?!?! Do you know of a serial number I can use to run the program?!?

Thank You,
Sheila

The only Serial that I know of that should be asked for is the Windows Product Key, This should be on a microsoft sticker on the underside of your laptop, if it is not there check your documentation as it may be there instead.

    Hmmm, I'm not sure....but I've only ever known these things to ask for the Windows product key

    Hmm it is possible that the serial is incorrect. or that there are confusable digits, IE I & l & 1, O & 0, B & 8, S & 5, some fonts make distinguising between these characters nearly impossible (especially for Cap I Lower case L and 1)



    Try substituting any confusable characters.



    If that fails, you may need to call Compaq to see if they will give you a serial to use or a bypass code.

How do i get a serial number so i can finish installing a quick restore disk?


for support and drivers go to http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-how-to-buy.html
Normally serial numbers arrive with the product, maybe the serial number of the Notebook would suffice. Can't understand why a serial number did not arrive with restore disc.

Is an emachine boot disk W2828 compatible with compaq presario desk topS4000v series?


No.

When Windows is put on a computer it assigns hash values to certain major hardware components;

1) Processor
2) Motherboard chipset
3) BIOS program, version, and date
4) Harddrive
5) Graphics chipset

Instead, I would like to post that you can get the Restoration Disk, for your Compaq.

THE disk.

On the back of the desktop is the Serial Number in a white Service Tag. S/N = Serial Number
Only give this to an authorized HP representative.
(HP bought out Compaq)

In 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.

Write the Serial Number down to give to the nice representative.

Part Number There are literally millions if not billions of different part numbers used by companies today. Because of the vast quantity of part numbers and the frequency of those numbers getting changed or referenced to other numbers, Computer Hope is unable to offer its customers with third-party part numbers.
If you are looking for a part number we recommend that you contact the computer company or the company responsible for supporting your product. You can find a listing of companies and their contact information on our company listing.
If the company responsible for your product is no longer in business we recommend the below.
  • If you do not have any numbers, but have the product or part you wish to replace, ensure that no numbers are listed on that part. If a number or name of company is listed on the product see the next section. However, if no number can be located we recommend you take the product to a local service center, repair shop, or the place of purchase for additional assistance.
  • If you are able to locate a number, attempt to search the Internet with a large search engine for that number. If you are unable to locate that number we recommend you take the product to a local service center, repair shop, or the place of purchase for additional assistance.
  • If you are only able to locate the name of the company who made the product, attempt to contact that company directly to see if they can provide you with a replacement. See our company listing for contact information.
Also see: Part Number (PN) Computer Hope dictionary definition.
Manual Because of copyright laws and the inability to have all manuals for all products, Computer Hope is unable to send or make copies of any manuals.
Many companies will provide a lot of their documentation in electronic format through their website. If you want an online version of a manual or instructions that you can print we suggest you visit the manufacturer of your product web page.
If you would like a hard copy of a manual or would like to locate a manual for your product, we recommend you contact the company responsible for your product and/or the company you purchased your product through. A listing of computer companies can be found on our company listing section.
Also see: Manual Computer Hope dictionary definition
Warranty Information If you have questions regarding the length of your warranty, how to purchase an extended warranty, what your warranty covers, and/or any other related warranty information, we recommend you contact the manufacturer or developer of your product and/or the place where you purchased your product. A listing of computer companies can be found on our company listing section.
Refund Information Computer Hope is not associated with any third-party product nor does it sell any third-party products; we are unable to handle any request for refunds of a product or provide anyone with additional information about a refund. To obtain this information you will need to contact the manufacturer of your product and/or the place of purchase. A listing of computer companies can be found on our company listing section.
Rebate Information Computer Hope does not provide or deal with any rebates. Therefore, if you have a question in regards to rebate information and/or why you have not received your rebate, you will need to contact either the manufacturer of your product and/or the company responsible for your rebate. A listing of computer companies can be found on our company listing section.
Serial Numbers Unfortunately, with the billions of different serial numbers and manufacturer numbers, we are unable to provide support and/or information on a product by its serial number. If you are looking for additional information about a product by its identification number, we highly recommend you contact the manufacturer of the product or look for information about the product on Computer Hope by searching by the manufacturer or type of device name. For example, instead of searching for "Serial Number 12345" it may be easier to search for "Maxtor hard drive".
If you are looking for a serial number for a particular software program you will need to contact the software developer or producer of the software program; Computer Hope will not provide any type of serial numbers or other registration numbers to any users. See our underground section for additional information to why Computer Hope does not provide this information.
Finally, a serial number for a hardware device such as a computer or printer can almost always be found on the bottom or back of the device. If you're trying to find the serial number for one of these devices try physically examining the device. If you're still having issues locating it the contact the manufacturer of the product for additional assistance.
Billing Information The Computer Hope web page and its service is a 100% free service and therefore does not bill any of its users. If you have questions regarding billing or changing the type of billing for a service it is recommended you contact the company you are using or have purchased a product through.
Missing or lost CD, disk, or install file If you've lost one or more of your installation CD's or diskettes you must contact the developer of that program to obtain a new copy. Computer Hope cannot send anyone copies of the disks or downloadable files over the Internet of the program regardless if you have purchased the program.
