Re: compac presario 1500

You need to reboot using the first disc in the series. Make sure that the AC adapter is plugged in, and check your bios settings and disable any power managment settings, in order to prevent the machine from going into standby, sleep, etc.

You should be able to make it through the entire series. If you can't, you may need to contact HP for a new set of discs, or if you have an HP authorized service provider, such as a Staples, Best Buy, etc; they can usually get the CDs a lot faster, and usually at the same cost, or maybe a little higher.

This means that the data inside the D drive is gone. If you had deleted the D drive data or had gotten rid of this partition then your outta luck in trying to restore your system back to factory settings (getting windows reloaded).

All is not lost if you are willing to pay HP/Compaq for their restore CD's this will get your laptop and running again. I paid a copy of these CD's 3yrs ago and cost me $45CDN to get them.

Recovery disk

I have recovery CD's for presario 700 series, works for most Compaq laptops and desktops, I can E-mail them to you or if you give me contact info I'll mail them to you.

through e-mail they are sent as an image file and will have to be Burned on cd by cdrw and burning software. So if you prefer the easiest is to just load the cd's i would mail you.

contact info
