Best advice here is to get the windows 7 operating system as windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft and updates are no longer forthcoming
a factory recover may require a re-entry of the registration code so you will need to get that from your friend..

SOURCE: hi i have a hp compaq nc8000 and i want to

I download all the drivers from the HP web site. Took a brand new 160GB hard drive and installed Windows XP Pro. I then proceeded to install all the available drivers and softward from the HP web site. The Altiris Recovery Software allow for the creation of a recovery partition.

If you never had a recovery partion on your laptop, pushing buttons won't do anything for you. The F11 key is used for Altiris Recover Partion. I've done this to my TWO nc8000 and would consider buying a 3rd nc8000.

SOURCE: I am trying to restore

Try holding the Alt key and tapping F10. That should put you into the restore partition. If this doesn't you may need to use a USB DVD drive and a copy of Windows.

Hi. I want to know if I can upgrade my Compaq evo d300v motherboard with an E6550 Intel Dual Core cpu?


Hi,

I don't think you will be able to upgrade to that CPU. Your motherboard is a socket 478 and the E6550 requires a socket 775. Sorry.

Cheers

Lost factory disks for my Compaq Persario sr1103wm know were I could get a new one?


Most HP and Compaq desktop PCs that ship with Windows Vista and XP do not come with recovery discs. Instead, they use a partition on the hard drive. To access a hard drive recovery, turn on the computer and repeatedly press F10 (XP) or F11 (Vista) until a Recovery window opens.

Bios setting problem


This happens because Windows is corrupted.

You need to start the computer with a windows install disk, or a factory recovery disk inside to reinstall the system.

Get a windows install disk and reinstall the system.
