Having problems with your HP Media Center PC 873n (P9875A#ABA) PC Desktop ?

Do you know where I can find a recovery disc for an HP 873n Media Center PC? I called hp and they don't have one.

Answers :

You are correct HP do not provide the recovery disks for this Media Center anymore.

I've just about searched the net for anyone who may have recovery CD's for sale but no no avail.

If you can still get into the operating system use HP Backup and Recovery Manager, its quick and user-friendly. To run,\015\012simply go to All Programs > HP Backup & Recovery > HP Backup\015\012and Recovery Manager. \015\012With HP Backup & Recovery Manager, file restoration is easy. To\015\012recover a deleted file, simply use the Restore Wizard.

For a full\015\012system restoration, press the F11 key during boot up and then select\015\012"Recover PC" from the menu if there is a recovery partition available (sometimes you have to hold down Ctrl and hit the F11 key on boot up)

Other than that you may have to purchase a Windows XP or Windows XP Media Center installation CD from a reputable store like PC World for example.

Good luck.
