HP Compaq Presario SR1123WM. I wanted to bring my system back to original factory settings. Well when this was done the operating systems and applications of every kind dissappeared. No Windows, no nothing. a black screen with a white blinking cursor. I contacted HP several times and purchased technical support with a promise it would be remedied. No such luck.

I borrowed a friends copy of windows XP PRO and finally got it up now, I have problems with the unblocking of VLK and passing WGA. With a constant freminder to take action to make windows valid. I JUST WANTED AND STILL DO WANT THE COMPUTER THAT CAME OUT OF THE BOXS!!?? CAN ANYONE HELP?? HP couldn't Thank you DESPERATE

    How do I set a Compaq Presario SR1403WM back to Factory settings


    Step 1:
    While many problems with Compaq Presario computers can be solved by less drastic means, there are times when the best course of action is to set the computer back to its original factory default state. Issues with persistent viruses or spyware often require this drastic step, as do problems with a corrupt operating system. Learning how to restore your computer to its original state is an important troubleshooting tool.

    Shut down your computer and restart it. Watch for the Compaq logo, then press the "F1" key to enter setup. Press the right arrow within setup to go to the Boot menu. Press the down arrow to access the "Boot Device Priority" option. Change the first boot device to CD-ROM by pressing the down arrow until "CD-ROM" is displayed. Eject the CD tray and place the recovery CD that came with your computer into the tray. If you do not have a recovery CD, you can order one directly from Hewlett Packard. Shut down and restart the computer. The Presario will automatically boot from the CD and begin the recovery process. Select the operating system your computer shipped with. Many Compaq recovery CDs support multiple operating systems, so be sure to choose the operating system your computer shipped with. Insert the operating system CD when prompted. Enter the license key for the operating system when prompted. The license key is typically found on a small tag located on the top or side of the computer.

    My compaq presario sr1123wm has crashed i think i got a virus how to fix it. i cannot go into safe mode and it won't let me access the jumpdrice


    buy yourself a new hdd (you can never have too much storage)... replace the one in there with it... reload windows onto the new hdd... you can then put your old hdd back in and save any files you really needed before formating... it my experience if you're careful the virus (if that what it is will not be able to cause trouble on the slave disc)

    good luck, rate if helpful

    Added a new hard drive to my desktop compaq presario sr1620nx and trying to install my operating system and its says no operating system found or corrupt partition and when i hit r to recover its brings me...


    You can't transfer the operating system. You have to reinstall it on the new hard drive. Most of the time the disks that come with a computer are just restore disks. Without the restore partition that comes on the hard drive that came with the computer, those disks are usually useless. Or if you want, you can keep both hard drives, and just setup the jumper settings on the hard drives so that the old hard drive is the primary, and the new one is the secondary. Then you will still have the operating system and you will use the new hard drive for storage.

    Presario SR1123WM won't restore to factory


    If Compaq doesn't have one no one else will either.
      Have you tried the recover clean up utility? Available as a download (link below)  
    My guess is that if it will not restore something is wrong with the hard drive. Have you contacted HP to ask them what it means? 
    Another option is to buy and install windows and download the drivers from Compaq/HP.Same link
