Hi,
Compaq provides restore cds with the system. How old is your machine.
If they donnot have the restore disks , you can purchase a retail copy of windows XP, and the rest of the driver softwares can be downloaded from the compaq website.

You can visit the following website for more help on the issue

Hi,

If you press F10 or F12 while you are booting, it should bring you to the recovery partition. If you are installing on a new harddrive then you can use any Windows XP CD as long as it is the same version of XP (Home, Pro, Media). Check your certificate of authenticity to verify which version you have. Make sure you download any drivers you need for the installation from the HP/Compaq website for your computer.

Compaq pressario start up problem


you need to do a scan disc in tools for the hard drive. it need to be set to auto fix and it will then say it will start on next startup. shut down and restart and just leave it to do its stuff. it should fix it. failing that you need a system monitor system installed like winfix that can detect windows faults and fix them.

COMPAQ PRESARIO M2000 RECOVERY DISC WILL NOT LOAD ON NEW HARD DRIVE


The issue here to be quite frank is the hard drive needs the compaq image before the recovery disk can be loaded. This provents people from taking there compaq disk and getting wise and installing it on multiable computers what authors call piracy.

What you need to do is have compaq NOW HP send you out a IMAGE recovery disc usually when a hard drive crashes they send you out the hard drive with the IMAGE.

The other solution is purchasing windows 7 upgrade and going at it from there.

Thanks hope this helps please do not shoot the messenger and leave postive feedback and ratings.

Claification to my problem with compaq pressario


Hi. Azrul here. Here is 2 of my best solution for your problem:

1. Online support from your PC's manufacturer. Restart your PC using a Windows XP/Vista CD and download all the related drivers for your PC online (you will need your compaq presario model number for this)

2. There is also an option to purchase the restore disc online. Depending on the age of the PC that you purchased, just google for "Compaq" or "Hewlett-Packar"and get the restore disk from there.
