Question about Computers & Internet
I suggest you use the Restoration Disk.
Start your computer put the disk in your optical drive tray.
When asked click on Non-Destructive Restore. (Repair)
If you click on Destructive Restore, (Full Installation), you will wipe out all personal documents you have saved.
Files in My Pictures, My Videos, My Music, personal documents you have created, and documents you have downloaded.
Non-Destructive Restore, or Repair, will repair the basic Windows files.
If you do not have the Restoration Disk for YOUR computer, you can order it from HP Support. (HP bought out Compaq)
In the USA there is no charge for the Restoration Disk.
The shipping and handling is Not free, however.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
This is the toll-free number to call in the USA, (24 hours a day, 7 days a week),
I am not familiar with support overseas, however here is the HP Support page for Worldwide,
Write down the Product Number, and Serial Number from your computer, to give to the nice person on the phone.
You'll find it in the white Service Tag.
The Service Tag will be located on the back of your computer tower, or up on the side.
