Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario Media Center SR1750NX (EL445AA) PC Desktop ?

Usb hell! Here's the scenario: I decided to restore my PC to its factory conditions. I burnt the neccesary disks, I'm about halfway through when the computer tells me disk 2 is corrupted. So I order restore disks from Compaq, I restore my computer and everything is working better except, unbeknownst to me, the usb ports, photo card readers, and serial port no longer work. If I go under USB in the device manager apparently USB Mass Storage is missing. While I've been in device manager before, I h


Answers :

Hi BlackLewis, try windows update before trying another re-install. Windows will see that you are missing drivers for some of your hardware. You'll have to check & add them to your download.
\015\012Also go to Compaq & install what your missing first from this link. Not much here.

\015\012You do not have to do a full system restore with the recovery CD's. You have the option to just re-install windows / repair.
\015\012Your personal data should still be intact.
\015\012You also have a DVD-RW writer in that Presario SR1750NX & can back up your personal data just in case.
\015\012The most likley folders to back up are:
\015\012User Name\\My Documents
\015\012User Name\\Favorites
\015\012User name\\ Application Data\\Identities
User name\\ Application Data\\Microsoft\\Address Book
\015\012User name\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\Identities
\015\012You can copy these floders back to a reinstalled OS.
\015\012
\015\012You will still have to reinstall othe programs like printer software & your wife's business software & data.

\015\012Good Luck & Best Regards!
