I work at a shop that is a HP ASP. (Authorized service provider) We have a library of restore disks at our disposal that HP sends us to repair HP/Compaq computers. We have stuff going back before the year 2000.
We do charge for reimaging computers that are outside of manufactures warranty, or by user request. Not anywhere near 140.00 though. Prices depends on if we have to baby sit through hours of updates to the lastest service packs or chase down missing drivers.
Ztrucker is correct, Hp will sell you a set of recover media for your machine if they are availible.
You can start the ball rolling by calling 1-800-HPINVENT. Be sure to have your product number, serial number and model of your machine. Roughly in the price range Ztrucker quoted.
Order them yourself, or dont be surprised if the Retail shop tacks on its mark up if they order them for you.

There is no such thing as a "Disk replacement center" you call customer service at Dell or you call customer service at Gateway. You make your request and you pay your money.
Google is your friend, or go have a visit at their web sites. ie, www.Dell.com or www.gateway.com. There is no secret handshake or decoder rings required.

If you or anyone you know has a computer that came loaded with windows xp and the key is on a sticker on the side all you need to reinstall windows is an oem disk for that version of the os (IE home or pro) install as usual and when it asks give it the key on the sticker. FIXED!!!
Now, you may have trouble finding the OEM cds and there I cant help you. I have them but im pretty sure if i hosted them Microsoft would have a hissy.
Correct me if im wrong on that. but I'm pretty sure even without the cd keys Microsoft wouldnt appreciate me posting the iso files.
Hope this helps anyone who may have run into this issue
