    Well now I see no restore disks offered there which they normally are within the downloads.
    Have you tried accessing Restore Partition? Tap F10 continuously after pressing power button until you see the opportunity to access Recovery Partition. If not F10 try F 11.

    Yes i tried accessing the restore partition. tapped f10 and then the pc asks me to insert a RECOVERY CD DISK #1. The reason for this whole "mess" is that i installed the XP Service Pack 3 for XP(it was a self extracting program) and then a blue screen popeed up telling me one of the files couldn't be found. That's when i backed my pc up. After i did that it asked me to insert the Recovery Cd. Which i don't have.

    Calling for cd on F10 is odd, did you try F11? Your best bet is to call HP and arrange to buy the restore disks, they are only about $20 including freight.
    Go here and do an online chat and find out how to buy the cd's.
