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.

You can try to back up all your files to another hard drive and better format your hard drive and reinstall everything back..

Hope that helps..........

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.

Wtf?? again


Hi. Azrul here. You can get into bios and select to boot up using your CD as your first boot priority.

But if that is not possible, just contact compaq or Helwett-Packard for a restore disk.

Maxtor harddrive jumper setting


If you only have a single hard drive (or multiple hard drives for that matter), you should leave the jumper setting as "Cable Select" or CS.

See if this PDF matches your hard drive:

hmmm..interesting question..compaq always makes this an unusual issue. I'd say you'd need the restore disk, yes. You might find them through this link, but you'll need to do some digging, methinks.
