If Compaq doesn't have one no one else will either.
Have you tried the recover clean up utility? Available as a download (link below)
My guess is that if it will not restore something is wrong with the hard drive. Have you contacted HP to ask them what it means?
Another option is to buy and install windows and download the drivers from Compaq/HP.Same link

Code Purple is a problem exclusive to HP's, the easiest solution is to avoid them. However, it's already too late for you as it was for me. Basically it's an attempt to force you to pay them to service or upgrade your PC, or if you didn't learn the first time, buy another. Here is the most concise answer I found, tried to translate into plain english.
***PLAIN ENGLISH QUICK AND EASY FIX FOR ALL SYSTEMS****
***Windows 7 code purple or Windows Vista code purple***
With the code purple error on the screen, press shift+f10 (the shift key and the F10 key (at the top of the keyboard) at the same time) to open a little screen called a command prompt. (So, you get a little black screen with white text that says something about your Windows verison first and a little ways down you'll see "C:\>". It's all ready for you to start typing.)
Type the following line, just as you see it here...
so it will look like this C:\>notepad C:\hp\bin\checkdmi\checkdmi.cmd - Note the space between notepad and C:\
You will see the text for the file listed in a window using a simple text editor.
Go to the beginning of the text. Press enter to make a space. Type this...
So, whatever comes after, the first line looks like this...
Save the file and exit notepad and restart your PC. You are good to go
NOTE: From my experience. If you received the Code Purple error during the restore process; after saving and exiting notepad, press and hold the power button until the PC shuts down, wait 15 seconds then restart. If you get a message during start up select "start windows normally". If you don't shut down using the power button and wait for the "windows was unable to finish........", you will likely get the same error again when the system boots. I don't know how to get back to the Code Purple error without doing the restore process again.
