You can find a good description of the Recovery options for Desktop PCs on the relevant link below.


Recovery Options - Windows 7.


Recovery Options - Windows Vista.

Re: how can i go to recovery mode?

If you can still boot into Windows the simplest way is to click on the Windows orb and then click on All Programs. Select HP and then Recovery Manager.   The Recovery manager for newer PCs and notebook looks like the following image. In the I need help immediately section click on System Recovery. In the next menu choose Factory Image recovery.


If you are unable to boot into Windows then you will need to use the recovery disk set or USB recovery media you created when you first setup your PC / notebook. You will have to boot from the disk #1 or the USB recovery media to access the HP Recovery Manager.

Here are the specs for your Compaq Presario Media Center SR1950NX Desktop Computer. According to the specs, your computer was introduced 16-May-2006 and came with Microsoft Windows XP SP2 Media Center Edition 2005. Since HP no longer lists Recovery Disc information on their "Software & Driver Downloads" page for your computer, it is indicative that they no longer maintain inventory of those discs. Please order the HP Recovery Discs for your computer from third party vendor
