You mean you are gonna reinstall your operation system?

You can boot up using your Windows 2000/XP CD. If you lost that either, you may call HP service for help.

Another choice is to try Linux, e.g. http://www.knoppix.org . That's _totally_ free, but costs time to learn.

Best,

I thought in HP computers there is a recovery partition by default? It should be D:\, you may want to recover from the recovery partition. Everytime i reformat by HP desktop, they always create this recovery partition, but I usually delete it coz I burnt out the image onto a DVD. If there isnt this partition, which means your only means of recovery is the disc, then you need to purchase the disc from HP.

Try looking for the user manual for your pc on the HP website. It should telll you how to access the recovery partition if there is one.

If there is no recovery partition, and you cannot find your recovery cd then you will need to call HP for a replacement. Personally though, if I had a choice betwen buying an HP recovery disk and buying a retail copy of XP, I'd take the retail copy every time. Depending on the difference in price of course.

Go to the HP website and look for your model number. All the drivers you need should be there.
