Default Re: windows xp disc

try pressing F12 at start up as this is the Dell default key for boot options...

then you might see an option to boot to utility partition.

Default Re: windows xp disc

How do I contact HP to get a Recovery CD? The computer came w/ a recovery partition for the software, but not OS. The OS on it is currently screwed up and I need it install it fresh w/ all the drivers. Is there an email address so I can ask for a recovery disc from HP?

Go to HPs Web site, put in your model number, and search for recovery discs. You should be able to order them online. If all that fails, call support, and ask them to give you the exact link to your model, so you can purchase the recovery discs.
Note: The recovery disc has your OS on it. A recovery disc is like an image of the computer the day it was purchased- put's everything back how it was without the hassel of installing drivers, software, etc. Very useful- if you never install anything else- Back your data up! Always!
