OS software can be purchased via Best Buy, Wal-mart, or any computer electronics store. If you're just looking to reset your PC to original settings, their may be a recovery application buried in the ROM of your PC.

Compaq SR1650NX HARD DRIVE MESSED UP RECOVERY DISK WON'T WORK REPLACED HARD DRIVE CAN'T GET BIOS TO RECONIZE HARD DRIVE SHOWS UP IN BOOT BUT NOT IN MAIN HP SAID TO INSTALL NEW OS HAD OLD 98SE LOADED WORKED...


Are you trying to set up a raid configuration? If not I would reformat using the 98 disk and reinstall. (You may be able to skip installing 98, try installing xp first and it should ask for the disk containing the software (win98) that qualifies for the upgrade.

I am not able to find lan driver for my compaq presario f733au, OS is win XP, can anyone help me plssssssssssss


This is HP.com/Support, and the Drivers and Software download page, for the Compaq Presario f733au laptop,
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3645611
(HP bought out Compaq)

I see they don't offer a LAN driver separately. It's located in Windows XP.
You might try the -> HP Update and HP Software Update-Critical Security Update <-
,under the Software-Internet Access heading.

I suspect you'll need the Restoration Disk. (I'm assuming of course, that you don't have this disk, as -> Many computers are sold without it. When you first get a computer now, you are advised to make a backup disk, the very first time you turn the computer on. How many of us do that?)

To the right on this page you'll see -> How to Order Recovery Disks <- in blue. I suggest you click on it, and order the disk.

I ordered one about a year ago. I didn't use the email option as it was too slow, I called them. MUCH faster! However this may be your only recourse, if the nearest HP Support Center is too far away, for you to call them. (Australia?)

The disk was free at that time. Shipping and handling did cost, though. $17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship. (In the US)

Should you get the disk, I suggest you do a -> Repair, Not a Fresh Install.

You may also want to try using a free source, to download drivers from. I use DriversMax.

Is a compaq ipaq h3835 compatable with vista


No, you do not need an upgrade. You'll need to be download only "Windows Mobile Device Center" to your Vista PC instead of ActiveSync. (ActiveSync is not compatible with Vista, instead Microsoft changed the software a bit called "Windows Mobile Device Center" and can be downloaded from Microsoft's website.) Your Vista PC should also recognize your ipaq PPC without needing any driver CD. I hope it helps.

Laptop hard drive


You can restore your computer to its original glory (once a new Hard Disk Drive is installed) using the original Operating System (OS) disk that came with the computer (applicable to Gateway, Toshiba, Dell laptops; other brands make you "burn" a copy on your own). I call this the "oops disk" because it restores the computer software back to factory default. If you got the laptop second hand or don't remember which buried box in the asthmatic attic has those old CD/DVD's - then you can do one of the following:
A. Contact the manufacturer to obtain a new set of "Restore" or "Recovery" disk(s). They will charge small Fee + Ship/Handling. [Tell "Sylvester" from Bangladesh "Hello!"]
B. Purchase a legal copy of an operating system (XP or Vista) from a local retailer (such as Best Buy) and install it [or hire a Geek Squad Agent to install it for you - much faster, less headache!]
C. Grab opportunity by the horns and steer into a fun project of installing an open-source (free) Linux-based OS such as Ubuntu or similar. [Happy learning!]
D. RECYCLE the computer and buy a brand new one, complete with operating system and manufacturer's warranty. ["OOOO, VISTA!"]
In ascending order of cost: C, A, B, D
In ascending order of time-investment and learning: D, A, B, C

HINT: if any or all of this solution sounds remotely confusing (e.g, you don't know how to install a HDD, etc) - hire someone to do it. I don't change my own oil because it's messy and less convenient. So, please support your local Geek Squad Agent and enjoy your free time!

Three things you can do:
1) Change your configuration back to what it was when the PC was new. Then reinitialize the PC and change it back to the desired configuration.
2) Purchase a "retail" copy of whatever OS you want to install. Do not buy an upgrade version, as this might not work without having an os installed before installation.
3) Buy a new PC. Not much of a fix for your PC, but this option can save a lot of time and hassle.
