You have to go into the system BIOS and make the CD drive the first boot drive.

I believe accessing the BIOS on a Compaq is F10.

    What CD are you using? It has to be a bootable CD.

Is a compaq presario 5000/8000 quick restore cd compatible with a compaq presario 2175us laptop?


I guess not. Drivers for compaq presario 5000/8000, are not the same as those for a compaq presario 2175us laptop. Now, actually that "notebook" looks to me rather outdated. You won't lose anything by trying. Worst case, format hard drive and install Windows XP SP3. Try to search internet for missing drivers.

Its not possible that BIOS can reject any USB device, you can use USB DVD in case if the BIOS is not accepting it so you can try to restore BIOS. Just go to the BIOS screen and look for the option to reset it. Normally it done by F9. Thank you.

Compaq presario 1260 keeps asking for disk, stating disk needs replaced and then hit any key


This is a warning that you have a hard drive going bad. You should probably get it into someone soon or you may loose all of your data.

Can i restore my compaq presario cq60 notebook to factory setting without cd ? its vista


hi.
there are two ways to completely restore settings of a computer:
1- enter Bios of your notebook (by pressing "delete" repeatedly") and select restore to manufacturer's settings.(or load from manufacture settings). THIS CAN RESTORE SETTINGS OF YOUR HARDWARE.

2- for restoring settings of Windows:
restart your notebook and before windows starts up (showing "windows starting") press F8 repeatedly.
then choose "load from last good configuration".

For boot from disk first you have to set first boot device option in BIOS.
for that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom.
then save settings then insert recovery diks in rom then check.
Then it boot from disk if your disk and cd.dvd rom works fine.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

Compaq Presario 1200


This means that the data inside the D drive is gone. If you had deleted the D drive data or had gotten rid of this partition then your outta luck in trying to restore your system back to factory settings (getting windows reloaded).

All is not lost if you are willing to pay HP/Compaq for their restore CD's this will get your laptop and running again. I paid a copy of these CD's 3yrs ago and cost me $45CDN to get them.
