    have you deleted your recovery partition?
    if you havent, you can still use the recovery feature in compaq
    pretty much the same thing
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    open up 'my computer' and look at the drives letters
    if you havent renamed em, it will resemble:

    3 1/2 Floppy (A
    Presario (C
    Presario_RP (D <------- recovery partition
    etc., etc.

    thats to see if you got the partition
    (and you cant really delete it by accident or anything)
    but to do the recovery, go to start menu>all programs>compaq>
    compaq pc tools>compaq system recovery
    then follow the on-screen instructions

    hint: choose &#39;non-destructive recovery&#39; if you got files you dont wanna lose
    may not keep em all, but you wont lose all of em
    and may have to re-install some apps afterward
    read up on it a little, i think if you move stuff you wanna keep into
    &#39;my documents&#39; you wont lose em at all

    IF YOU HAVE bought it from Compaq ask then for another one.
    What machine - operating system (that came with it) do you have.

    what can i use instead
    What you want get the drivers for your machine (ALL) get your O/S make a bootable cd (unless its XP)with the drivers on it too and away you go.

    Just call compaq and ask them to send you recovery CD&#39;s. thats what I did. They Fed-exed them over night at no cost. All Idid was tell them that I started to make my recovery CD&#39;s and never finished, and they rushed me out 6 cd-roms the next day.
