I did post another comment since that first one with the $199 question, and hope that you got that.

Since then, I did a little research on pricing, and there appear to be few alternatives to the $199. The only instances where the pricing was lower appear to be either original or SP1 versions, which would require substantially more time on your part to update. So, I think it is a choice between reverting using the restore CD, or unfortunately paying the $199. In either case, I would recommend doing a full backup of at least your data files, and any other software that you may not have handy, just in case something goes wrong with the solution. Best of luck!

Trying to restore my computer back to factory defaults without recovery disk


You can press F10 and you will get the option to take the computer to system console and then follow the steps and if you have the CD with you then follow the steps below

1 Shut down your computer and restart it. Watch for the Compaq logo, then press the "F1" key to enter setup.
2 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.
3 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.
4 Shut down and restart the computer. The Presario will automatically boot from the CD and begin the recovery process.
5 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.
6 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.

When i use the recovery cd for emachine w6409 it hang's up on wild tangent games. ital-ed for 2 hours


Fortunately you don't need wild tangent games for your PC to run correctly, Your restore CD should have options for either installing or NOT installing bundled software, choose that if possible or find a CD with a matching operating system and use that to install. You will need to have your CD-Key from the back of the Emachine handy. Don't worry, your PC will still pass verification and activation as long as you use your original license key.

You can format-it and install-it again with the serial number from your backside of laptop. You should have one with Windows XP or something. Install from any windows cd and use your serial key. After that you have to activate your windows and make the updates.

Dell Latitude D505 XP Driver Recovery CD - Restore Disk


Dell doesn't realy have a "recovery" CD. What they shipped is a re-installation CD of the original OS (OEM edition). If you don't have this, you can probably download it from a torrent site and install the OS again using the installation code from the license sticker on the bottom of the laptop.

Hello - not certain if you received this information, as it was posted on the primary page...

Do you have a backup from before the upgrade was done? Or, in the alternative, do you have the original CD / restore CD that came with your PC?

What is $199 for? If you had a valid license for the program, there should be a way for us to find a solution without purchasing it again. It may mean a call to Microsoft...
