Check the audio setting in the volume control in the accessories folder in the start menu.  make sure that all of the audio channels are switcched on, and thaty none of them are muted.  If this does not work, try uninsztalling the audio device in the Device Manager, and restart.

My HP d530 is infested with viruses and will not start up in safe mode. So I am trying to Perform a System recovery, but I have no disk.

If you do not have a recovery disk ..the fastest way and safer and much reliable is to reinstall it clean from a Boot-able disk with the operation system ...
After installing the clean operation system ..all you need is to get the drivers for the devices..(sound; video ;Lan card;//etc) from the HP support site ..and reinstall them for to be working proper..
During the installation you will have to format the Cpartition in order to get rid of all the viruses for sure ..
Here you will find an image file with a boot-able windows XP..that you will have to download using Utorrent or any torrent client software ..and after that burn it on a blank CD using NERO burner software ..
The actual burning is made just by double clicking the file with a blank cd inside..and the Nero program being installed on the computer ..
Here are the links in order for ..and Nero ..
just install utorrent first ..than download Nero and install it ..(be sure you insert the product key in the folder) ..and than download the windows xp image file from that link ..
when all that are done and nero installed..insert a blank disk ..and double click on the image file will bur a boot-able windows xp ..
with this cd you will be able to boot from cd and reinstall the operation system ..
after that here you will find the drivers you need for your computer ..

I can't remember my compaq administrator log on pass word. How can I reset it if I don't have a secret question?

Log into Safe Mode.

On startup, press F8. This will give you the 'bootup' selections for starting your computer.
Select Safe Mode. If you can get in, Press <CTRL> <ALT> <DELETE> and select 'Change Password'.

If this doesn't work, see if you can find someone that has a program called ERD Commander. This program will let you boot to the system and reset the administrator password.
