Question about Compaq Presario 1200 Notebook
I'm not sure what I removed.
Can you reinstall a fresh copy of Windows? Or maybe go to the start menu and do a system restore? It sounds like you removed a file related to links. Each desktop icon is a link to a file of one kind or another. It is a bear to fix that unless you're a programmer. If it was me, I'd install a fresh copy of the operating system and set it up specifically for her.

set the bios/cmos to boot first of your CD drive. get your support discs and restore to original. your hard drive OS has failed and needs to be re-installed. the problem maybe is that when you do that option you will get all your data erased. your solution to that since you can still get the data on the drive when used as external is to back it up. then full restore your system.
if you dont have your restore kit, you can use your Windows OS to fix it, repair option when you boot from CD.

Please see link for Detailed instructions. Its simple as unscrewing a few screws and sliding out the hard drive.

Unfortunately, it's as I suspected. Your hard drive is bad or had bad sectors and that's the reason why you are unable to use the recovery disks. How old is your system? Is it still under warranty? If it's not under warranty, the better news is that, you can purchase a new hard drive and at least you'll just be out the price of the hard drive.
Anyway...I can help you with the type of hard drive you need if you want to go that route.
Let me know what you think...
