Tower fell over and won't work now

It's a Compaq Presario SR1115CL. We knocked it over on it's side, and now we can't get it work. We tired the recovery that is build in and once it runs, it states it cannot locate the system start-up or set-up file and states that I must use the original set-up CD. I don't have that CD. If you need to know exactly what it states, I can get it and resend this. I do not know much at all about PC's, so talk slow. I did take the side off and checked for loose connections, didn't see any.

Thanks Curt

Re: Tower fell over and won't work now

There's a partition on your hard drive that has a recovery section. it is from here that you create "start up" disks my wife has a presario sr1503wm and we created a set of ten start up, recovery disks for it. you can go to the compaq-hp site and download the drivers necessary to boot up the machine using a different computer. I think compaq offers six floppies to get you going again.

Audio out connector broken need help

The only way out if to get to the Motherboard and replace the connector pin. For this you will need to open the sides, remove the mother board. Only if you have good soldering experience with the desolderring tool this can be done.Other wise you may have to loop the connectiion from the motherboard to a inline connector pin. The work on the board must be undertaken only if you are experienced to do the replacement without damaging the board or else loop as suggested above. Hope you try this out. Good day

Compaq presario sr1115cl wont power up

Remove the power supply after everything is unplugged and take it to your nearest electronics store. They should have a tester there. This is probably the problem.
