Hello jerault, To answer your question you can call HP at this number and request the recovery disk for your pc 1800-474-6836.
However There should be a recovery partition on your computer. To access it, power on your computer. You will see a message on the screen telling you to hit f10/f11, or a few other possible keys to enter recovery. Follow the prompts until setup is completed.
good luck

My hp media centerm7250n computer wont boot up from the recovery dvd sounds as if the hard drive is spinning

Disconnect the "data" and "power" cables from the disk-drive.
Boot from the Recovery DVD, just to prove that your computer can boot. Of course, you may get an error-message, when no disk-drive is detected, but you will have proved that your computer can boot properly.

Connect a different disk-drive, and boot again from the Recovery DVD, to confirm that it will boot, when some "other" disk-drive is detected.

Does anyone know how to perform a system restore on an HP m7250n? I never made recovery disks when I first purchased the PC, and now I would like to reset everything back to original factory settings.


I guess you would want to run the system recovery not restore as restore just takes the computer to an earlier date it does not delete anything .So as you said that u want to take the computer back to its original factory settings u need to first disconenct all the esternal devices along with the cable for the internte and then if u have XP then u need to tapp the F10 key repeatedly as soon as u turn the computer on and need to keep on tapping it until u get the system recovery page.Once ur there then u need to follow the onscreen instruction until u get to a page that has ADVANCE OPTION ...need to click on that and then select destructive recovery and then click on next .The recovery will start automa tically and format the computer .
If u have vista then u need to tapp the f11 key, tapp the key until u get the screen that says revovery manager ... then select the advance option and then select system recovery... then click on next and then tje recovery will start automatically ...once it complets 100% restart or click on finish .Run the basic setup by follo wing the onscreen instruction ..

All the best

Acer aspire 5550 recovery disk

recovery disks dont really work its better to just buy the operating system you want and reinstall its a lot faster and if you need that specific disk you can download a copy using ares or emule or buy one from the maufacturer

Yes, It is a GOOD IDEA to get a bigger wattage PSU in case that you want to add extras to your HP. No you do not need a new case unless it is beat up, or you just do not like it anymore....
