Go to the Control Panel System HardWare and then Device manager Delete the CD burner and restart the computer. The Xp is supposed to find the device and reinstall it If this fails you will need the driver provided by Hp - unfortunately it is nopt available to download from the Hp website but you can order it by mail http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&dlc=en&product=60019&os=228 Good Luck

Hp1118x computer "crashed". (got message "boot.... error, insert recovery disc". Operating syst. CD, old aol CD, Norton CD, MSW critical sec updates CD, LOADED, and seem to be working. ...

Hp 1118x
what model?
a1118x? circa 2006 (11 years old?()
left off the "A"
a DESKTOP
now retired by HP
https://support.hp.com/us-en/retired-products

and by MS, Microsoft.com
dead product and OS
loading is SERIAL not parallel processes.
the OS is first
is your PC XP oS?
is it BSOD'ing with the blue screen of *****>?

driver recovery is not OS recovery at all.

the PC does not boot XP does it.
so if the F10 (or F10 )recover feature is dead.
power on F10 key or F11
the restore runs and fixes this.
if restore is dead
the HDD can be dead.
hard drive.
in this case you need, a new hdd and a real HP CD set to install XP, (microsoft does not sell xp now)
neither does, HP.


please post, full symptoms.
of the OS, first.
what is on the screen when it fails

all I know is
boot.... error,
if that is it, then it is it the hdd is dead
the boot files missing or the OS is corrupted full of virus as all XP machines are.

find a newer pc, with w7 is best , no really
or find a XP disk, (had to find 15 years ago made)


if you try to upgrade this pc, you will find the
realtek chips LAN dead. and they have no newer drivers.
a worning.... that is why its best to buy
all used computers (2017 view) with a COA sticker on the bottom with Windows 7 license or newer.
0r spend for ever looking for driver that do not exist.
LACKING HP media kit CDs that dont exist for w7
