Hi,

From the description of the problem, it seems that some critical files needed to run the Windows operating system are either deleted or corrupted.

To resolve this issue, you will have to re-install the operating system using the Windows setup disk.

For more help and clarifications, please feel free to reply to this post.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Can I use a compaq persario without a mouse? I am not sure if this is the right model. It just says compaq persario and has windows vista. the mouse died.


If you computer is a desktop meaning it has a computer tower and a separate monitor on it its called a desktop computer and you really need a mouse for it, but if its a laptop/notebook those that are slim and without any tower for it you can use it without any mouse since it has a touch pad that you can use as a replacement for your mouse.

Lost factory disks for my Compaq Persario sr1103wm know were I could get a new one?


Most HP and Compaq desktop PCs that ship with Windows Vista and XP do not come with recovery discs. Instead, they use a partition on the hard drive. To access a hard drive recovery, turn on the computer and repeatedly press F10 (XP) or F11 (Vista) until a Recovery window opens.

A compaq persario 700 (used) given to me as a gift. I cannot locate the power button to turn it on.


The power button for this computer is in the center directly above the keyboard. If pushing it does not activate the machine you have to check to see if your power supply is connected. Also verify that all cables are intact(not frayed etc.). Also, Use it on AC power before trying to use battery power.

Persario


if you still have the compaq recovery disk simply use it the same as you have done in the process, it will install all drivers as well, all of your backup might be useful depends on the file you have stored, say documents which by any means can be restored again, if you dont have the recovery disk you can download any particular device that isnt working and reinstall or update the driver from compaq's website.

Unmounable boot volume


This is an operating system error, and you will need an operating system disc. You can try to repair or reinstall the operating system, but most likely the hard drive has failed and will need replacing.

Compaq presario 700


your operating system wasn't found because kill disk wipes your hard drive clean.
You have to re-install your operating system, all the drivers, and any programs that you might want in your computer.
Boot into the BIOS (tapping the delete key during initial boot-up should get you there, or follow any instructions on the bottom of your POST screen to get into "set-up") and make sure your DVD/CD drive is the first boot option, then put your operating system disc in the drive, and re-boot...the drive should read your CD, and boot from there.
