If what you want to do is order discs to format your computer and reinstall Windows, then yes. Call 1 800 HP INVENT and let them know that you'd like to order a set of recovery discs. They'll probably want your serial number which is usually located on the back of the computer.

Is there any software for boot manager?, because i dont have a hard drive for re-installing my HP compaq nc6220?


Hi, You need a Windows operating system CD or system restore CD that come with the computer. You need to format the hard drive and install windows. After that is complete you need to install all the drivers in order the lan controller, audio, and display will work properly. Get back to us if this information helps you solve the problem.

Problem loading os on compaq evo n610c


Make sure you start by deleting the old partition, and formatting C:. If it still locks up after that, then your hard drive is bad.

Reformat


(A) Try interrupting the boot sequence and telling the computer to boot using the last known good configuration. Here's how: 1) Turn the computer on, and press F8 repeatedly until the boot options menu appears (the menu items include "Start Windows Normally," "Use Last Known Good Configuration," etc.). Use the arrow keys to select "Last Known Good Configuration" and press ENTER. The computer should boot correctly.

if it dont this is the procedure given below to format the whole operating sys 1) Put the CD in the CD drive and turn the computer on. 2) As the computer begins to turn on, you should see the message "Press __ to enter setup" (it's usually F1, F2, or F4 - models vary). Press that key.
3) You should then see the Setup screen for the BIOS ("Built-In Operating System") - using the arrows, find the "boot disk priority" settings and select your CD Drive as the first priority.
4) Exit setup, saving changes (usually by pressing F10). The computer should then boot normally using the CD.

I can not install Windows on my Compaq Evo N620c


The quickest solution here would be to put the hard drive into a computer that has Windows already running, and format it through the operating system itself. I've run into this problem a few times, and when another computer wasn't available I would use a Linux boot disk to clear out all my partition tables, then I would load up with Windows XP and tell it to write a new NTFS partition. Do NOT select the 'quick format' option, you'll have to wait through the long one.

Cant install recovery disks after a hard drive reformat!


the recovery disk is designed to repair or restore a system to its previous factory condition and is not a full installation. the formating of your hdd would have erased all the data required for this process to be completed. you can try a recovery utility that may be able to help you at this link. the disk might not have been saved in an .iso format to tell the computer to run it before starting an OS. if this disk is recognized and runs on your system then you will need to attempt a recovery, which is unlikely since the drive has allready been formated many necessary system files may not be able to be restored. at this point a complete new install will be necessary.
Good Luck!

Compaq restore cd


Hi mithz.
I'm not you people.
(Please keep track of the user who you ask a question too).

When you installed windows 2000, (If you formatted the entire drive during install), you might have taken out the small partition that holds data for a system restore. No version of windows likes
you going backwards. In order for you're system restore CD's to work you'll need to format the hard disk drive. Windows will not install if Windows 2000 is found on the drive. The fastest way to get Windows 2000 off the drive without deleting any other partitions Compaq installed would be to go to the hard disk drives manufacture's site & download their setup tools/utilities. You'll be able to creat a bootable floppy disk that will function in a dos-like mode out side of windows. You'll be able to format the Windows 2000 partition. Once that is done you will be able to incert the restore CD (s) & install Compaqs windows XP.
You may need to pull the drive in order to see who made the drive. EX; Seagate, Smsung, Maxtor ect. Here is the link for Seagate. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools
Every manufacture has similar bootable floppy software.
Read the instruction provided by the manufacture on how to create the floppy disk & how to run it.

Good Luck!

Restoring OS on presario 5000 series


you need to format the whole hard drive as it's the hidden restore partition that is giving you problems, but you may not be able to format it using the XP cd or restore disk. You may have to use the old FDISK as this may be the only way to restore the hidden partition. You will need a boot disk, see below link for win98 as this is what you will need to fdisk, then follow instructions on bottom link, as it's too long to type in here. http://www.bootdisk.com/ http://www.pcanswers.co.uk/tutorials/default.asp?siteid=8§iontypeid=7&subsectionid=606&pagetypeid=2&articleid=6046&page=2
