Sure..go to my computer, and see if it's there..if not, then control panel, system..and check to see it's on that device manager list.

that fails..get the geeks to tell you where they hid it.

Need recovery disc Compaq Presario SR1500NX


It's easy to get the Restoration Disk/s for an HP computer, Margaret.

May be able to guide you on here with repairing your computer also, and leave the 'GEEKS' at Best Buy to twiddle their thumbs, and make money off of someone else.

On the back of your Compaq Presario SR1500NX Desktop PC, is a white sticker.

Service Tag

You need to write down the Serial Number, to give to the nice representative on the phone, for HP Support.

(ONLY give out to an authorized HP representative. Do NOT post on a world-wide forum such as this)

S/N = Serial Number

In the USA call the toll free phone number - 1-800- 474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The Restoration Disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

Not in the USA?
Use HP Support Worldwide,

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/hp-information/summary/ww-support.html

When you receive the Restoration Disk/s, turn the computer on, put the disk in the optical drive's tray. (CD/DVD Drive)

Drive closed let the disk load.
WHEN asked click on - Repair (Non-Destructive Installation)

This will repair the basic Windows files.

IF, you have a virus, AND cannot get rid of it, you'll have to take the computer back to Day 1, when it came from the factory.

This will be a Full Install. (Destructive Installation)

NOTE*
ALL of your personal information, AND any programs you have installed, will be GONE!

The computer will be back to Day 1 from the factory, and before you put anything on it.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

Was the Geek Squad's disc being detected? Or did you just take them your disc to see if they could get a computer to recognize it? If not, then you may just need to change some settings at Boot for your computer to start booting from your restore disc. I've never personally dealt with the Geek Squad, but I would not just take their word for something. I've had several people very unhappy with the outcome of letting them service their computers. I've talked to other people who were very happy with the Geek Squad service. Try taking your disc to a local computer shop and ask them if they can put the disc in their computer to see if it is a functioning Restore Disc. MADHATTER COMPUTERS

How to install ram in 9680c. can't get at the motherbooard


If you cannot access the motherboard, you cannot install any ram in the computer. I suggest you take it to Geek Squad or contact the computer's manufacturer to see about upgrades.

When I turn My Computer On The Screen Just Goes blue. What Do I Do?


Microsoft Windows is reporting some sort of error.

Take your computer to "The Geek Squad" or to some qualified technician, along with the original set of CD-ROMs that are used to re-install Windows. Be sure that the technician does a "full-backup" of all your files & music, before wiping the disk-drive, and re-installing Windows.

Every time i put a cd in the cd holder it ejects - different cd's and the same problem


the cd drive on your model has a safety feature, where if the drive lens is too dirty or scratched it will refuse any cd inserted. an apple repair store or a trip to geek squad 1-800-geek-squad may be necessary. thank you for using fixya!

Geek Squad Backup Disks


Usually you just put the first backup disk in the CD/DVD drive and restart/reboot the computer.
If it does'nt boot up you have to go in to the bios settings and change the boot sequence so that it boots from the CD/DVD rom instead of the Hard Drive. When it's finished the restore task you can either leave the bios settings as they are, or change it back to boot from the Hard Drive. Sometimes the backup/restore disks will put the PC back to the same as the day you bought it, which means completely wiping the Hard Drive and reloading the Operating System (Windows) and any programs that where installed at the time the disks were made. If you can run the backup/recovery from within Windows there will be a program in the Programs list on the Start menu. That way you usually keep anything that you have added since you bought the PC and it just reinstalls the Operating System to restore it back to it's original condition.

Hope this helps.
