Default Quick Restore CD

On Model 7594 windows kept developing errors. Disgusted I wiped out
hard disk and installed with a stand a lone copy of W98SE. Not a good
idea, the sysem works but very slow erratic and compaq files still on
system. Now need to fulll restore with the quick restore disk, but
there is a problem. There is no Compaq Support Quick icon on the
destop as it was deleted from the desktop when formatted. This folder
apparently is needed as it contained the quick restore icon whch
starts the quick restore disk to full restore the operating system. As
it now stands, the quick restorer disk is useless without this folder.
I have looked everywhere on the C: drive and these two programs cannot
be found: (1) quick restore icon and (2) compaq support icon folder.

Any edeas on how to use the quick restorer disk to get this machine
running would really be appreciated.

Did you try putting the QR disk in the drive and re-booting? I'm not

familiar
with your model but when I was running a 5000 series the QR disks worked

by
re-booting the machine and following the on screen prompts. Back up any

files
that you don't want to lose before proceeding.

Go to Compaq/HP website and order Quick Restore CD's for your machine...
Due to a class action lawsuit, you get the disk and shipping free... until
Dec 31
I got mine in 2 days..

To restore the 7594, just put QuickRestore disk 1 (there are 2 discs) in the
CD drive and reboot. Disk 1 is bootable.

Can you give a link for the free QR cd's? Following the link in the
Compaq FAQ indicates the cost is $10.00. Here is the link from the FAQ.

For Quickrestore CDs:

http://www.compaqqrsettlement.com/

Just in case anyone else wasn't aware, I wanted to share the class
action settlement link above, where you can file a claim form to get the
free Compaq Presario Quick Restore CD's. It's probably been mentioned
in this newsgroup before but I just found out about this group earlier
today - and am I glad I did!

Thanks again,
Nevans

You may be able to get a original restore cd from
http://www.ambry.com. They usually carry all of them. All you need
is the correct part number from hp.
