Question about HP Remanufactured Compaq Presario SR1130NX 2.1 GHZ Athlon Desktop PC with 512 MB RAM and 160 GB Hard Dr... (086753090819)

1 Answer

I have a Compaq SR1130NX computer. It had some major problems, so I was reformatting the computer, or so I thought and I put in the Quick Restore CD for my older computer I used to have which was Windows 98. Needless to say - it won't do anything and I am now stuck with the computer unavailable. I looked at the little packaged I got with the Windows XP computer and it didn't have any restore CDs. Is there any way that I can get a set so I can restore my computer to my manufacturer defaults?

If you can gain access to another computer and then the web site to get to Compaq's web site I would.
A) have the model and serial # with you.
B) Go to their support page and or Tech support page.
C) They may have an instant Tech/talk message page where you can talk to a Compaq tech with instant messenger.
If not you could just send them an E-mail with your need to get the restore disks sent to you. You may have to pay a small shipping fee but they should be able to get them to you.
Some one told me that they were able to get a restore disk/software from the web site. You may need to have a large USB drive or a Flash memory card to load this recovery software on.
Worth the try!

Quick restore compaq


Some COMPAQ computers have "dedicated" about 8GB to 10GB of the space on the disk-drive for a "system restore" partition.
Backup all your data, serial-numbers, and your important files/bookmarks/music, and restart the computer, and choose "system restore"., to reload your 'C:' drive, putting it back to the "factory" settings.

Compaq cpq 5410us ran a factory restore from disk that came with computor when done it says remove disk and turn off computor tun back on and get nothing any ideas ?


What you will need to do is reboot the computer with the cd out of the drive. When the computer starts up you will need to hit f5 or f7 to get into the system bios. You will see a list of boo table devices choose cd-rom. put the cd in, power down computer. Turn it on and it should boot from cd and allow you to do the factory restore.

Having major issues with reformatting Acer Aspire One


Sure, calm down. You need to get a bootable cd like UBCD. This cd not only boots, but installs a cd driver, allowing full access of CD Drive in a DOS Environment. Check out the UBCD website, download it, and turn the computer on, with the cd in the drive, your computer will boot, so boot the cd, when the options load, hit the key "r", and windows will repair.
Good Luck

I wan to reset my pc compaq


Hi sa_honey0902,

If I understand you correctly, I think you mean reformat. If so, and if the compaq cd's came with your computer, then you can slip in the cd, reboot the computer and follow the instructions. Important Note: before doing so, make sure you back up all pertinent files.

Good luck.

How to reformat ibm pc


Hello Gerjoy06

Thanks for the good thoughts. :)

If yours is a Recovery or System Restore CD provided by IBM w/ that particular model computer, then, no, you will likely not need the OS CD.

I have seen some instances where the OS CD and the recovery CD were needed. So, I can't be certain w/out knowing the model and, possibly, the serial no. of that computer. Chances are, however, that you will not need the OS CD.

Please, make sure that you have backed up all of your data as the restore CD will format your hard drive as part of the System Restore process.

I also recommend that you download all the latest drivers from IBM/LENOVA for that computer and burn them all to a CD-R disc before you begin the restore process. It could save you some trouble.


***************
Please, let me know if this response was "Helpful" or a "FixYa" for you or, of course, if you have additional questions, etc on this topic.

If I did not answer your question satisfactorially, plz, b4 assigning a "Thanks for Trying" or lower rating to my "Solution", let me know. I may have misunderstood you or the problem you are experiencing.

In any case, I will work w/ you until your problem is resolved or diagnosed. I promise! :)

Thank you
