Disk error failure for hp presario sr1910nx. how can I fix this? I brought a new hard drive but I received the same disk boot failure. I do not have the system recover CD.

If possible it will be good if you can get help from the HP service centre.. or call the service call centre. Check on website for information of the nearest centre and make an appointment .
You can also send it over after consultation. I recommend this to save money/time on unnecessary purchase without a confirmation and then getting sttuck when we want material( software) from HP.
So decide on my advice.

HP/Compaq P4 2.8 GHz Desktop PC alarm is going off. my computer won't start up and there is a 'light bulb' icon that is flashing red

This is a Beep code for Memory Failure or System board failure. Mostly this should be due to RAM ( System Memory ) failure. Try reseating the Memory.
There will be two Memory modules in the system, try booting with only memory module and if it works. the swapping of memory does not help, the system board must be faulty.
