Compaq/HP offers 10$ recovery discs from their webpage... Just search google for compaq recovery, then it will probably ask you for your comp model, put that in. Then itll give you the CD you need and charge somewhere are 10 bucks. If its a customized comp, just call, they have a CD for every computer...

I think I got one of those Compaq recovery tools cd. Then I can install the new parts and if the parts wont work, then I can use the recovery cd to restore the hdd, and then it will be all fine. Is that correct??

Exactly I had this same issue when I upgraded to a new 160GB Hard Drive and when I added more RAM into the PC; the recovery CD still worked fine for me

Good luck!
