Recover CD can be purchased from Compaq. Contact them and provide details of the model number details etc.

    The recovery CD you need is specific to your model laptop, any recovery CD most likely won't work with your laptop. You need one for your model laptop from HP/Compaq.

I want to restore my compaq presario SR 1050NX to factory but it is asking for administrator password and I didn't put one on


Try admin or just hit enter. If not remove the battery from the mother board for 5 minutes and see whether it helps. If you haven't entered a password on BIOS there shouldn't be any problem. Also try deleting if you have any other users accounts on the system.

Good Luck!

Compaq presario sr1050nx will not power on and the green light just flickers.


I have the same SR1050NX compaq computer with the same startup problem. I suspect this from a code seeded in the system, so performed the system recovery for several times. The problem gradually came back, automatic shutting down with loger interval. I thought the bug is in the recovery system. But the floppy drive in the cmos is disabled without choice to be activated. So, I couldn't perform FDISK at DOS mode. For this computer, I wonder anyone knows how to activate the drive for boot order besides through the setup window.

Thanks very much.

Will a AMD Athlon 64 processor work in a Compaq Presario SR1050NX Desktop? My old processor Died and I purchased one of these off of Ebay, now just want to make sure it will work...


No Donnie, the motherboard for the Compaq Presario SR1050NX won't support an AMD Athlon 64 processor.

The reason why is;
A) The Processor socket on the SR1050NX's motherboard is a Socket A. (Also known as Socket 462)

Hp Support > Compaq Presario SR1050NX > Specifications > Motherboard Specifications >

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00072236&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=405454

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short.
Look to the right of the CPU heading:
Socket A (Processor socket)

This is the Socket A processor socket used on your motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_A

You can click on the photo of the Socket A processor socket, to the upper Right, to enlarge.

The AMD Athlon 64 line of processors came out after the Socket A, and used the Socket 939 first.
Then on to the Socket AM2.
(Socket 940 for some models)

Full format of compaq presario 2100


Most notebooks have a separate partition on the hard drive that holds the recovery media needed to restore the unit.
You can usually run this by pressing F10 during the boot up process. You may need to press it several times in order to get it work.
If that doesn't work, then you will need to contact Compaq in order to order the recovery media kit.

Start Normally (black screen with options)keeps re-loading itself


If you can't get into windows normally or into safe mode to try to restore the system back to a date when it worked properly then you'll need to wipe out the hard drive and start the system from scratch.

On my desk-top presario


HP/Compaq has had alot of power supply issues with this series of computers. Do you have another power supply you can try in this system? If the light is flashing rapidly, it is usually a power supply. Fairly cheap and easy to replace.
