When you used it before, did you have all three CD drives connected? If not, try unplugging two of them.

You can burn one in some cases if it hasn't already been done. Usually computers don't come with recovery discs anymore.

How to do system recovery on compaq presario 5000 windows me


Starting a Recovery Turn on the computer and immediately begin pressing the F10 key repeatedly until a Recovery Screen appears. You can also start a recovery from recovery discs, or from Windows. For more information refer to Performing a Full System Recovery in Windows XP . Back to topRecovery is taking too long If your computer stops responding after using the recovery program, do the following:
NOTE: If the computer appears to have stopped responding after restarting from a recovery, please wait, it may take several hours or longer to complete the initial Windows XP setup process, especially if a recovery was run from a recovery disc set sent by HP. A Standard recovery may also take longer, depending on how many files are stored in user accounts (like in My Documents ).
  1. Exit the stalled recovery process by pressing the POWER button on the PC until the power turns off, this takes approximately five seconds.
  2. Before recovering, disconnect personal media drives, printers, scanners, cameras, camera-type memory cards, and other devices that did not originally come with the PC.
  3. If you are using recovery discs, be aware of the following items:
    • If you created the recovery discs using Recovery CD Creator, be sure to run the recovery from the same drive that you used to create the discs.
    • Clean the discs with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth wetted with distilled water. Wipe from the center of the disc to the outside edge. You may also use disc cleaning kits or disc restoration kits from your local computer store. These kits produce better results than using cloth and water.
    • You may also use available CD/DVD Drive cleaning kits to clean the laser reading lens of the CD or DVD drive.
  4. Try running a full system recovery again from the hard drive by turning the on the computer and pressing the F10 key until a Recovery Screen appears. This performs the recovery from the hard drive.
  5. If the recovery stops when recovering from the hard drive, use the section Disc errors occur during the recovery process to eliminate errors on the drive. Try recovering again after the disk errors are removed.

Hi:
Your only choice to get recovery discs now is to order them thru the HP/compaq website. They are not too expensive, and it is about the only ;thing you can do since someone already used your option on the display computer you bought.

Nothing happens when I insert the recovery disc


when it tells you to take out every disc, leave the recovery disc as it contains the files needed for it to recover your system to factory specs
