Trying to restore back to factory settings


System Recovery
When you've tried other methods of repairing your
system software (like System Restore or Application
Recovery), you may want to use the Compaq System
Recovery program as a last resort to reinstall the software.
When necessary, you can reinstall the operating system and
the application software that was originally installed on the
PC at the factory by using the System Recovery program.
WARNING: The Compaq System Recovery
program will delete any data or programs
that you installed after purchase. Be sure to
back up any data that you want to keep onto
a removable disc.
The System Recovery program uses a special recovery
partition on the hard disk drive that stores an image of the
original software.
NOTE: The System Recovery image is in a partition area
of the hard disk drive and takes up part of the total drive
space. This disk space is not usually available for your use.
In the unlikely event that you replace the hard disk drive,
or somehow damage the data in the special recovery
partition on the hard disk drive, use recovery discs to
reinstall the operating system and software on the hard disk
drive. See "System Recovery Using Recovery Discs."
Make your own recovery discs (CDs or DVDs) before you
need them; see "Creating Recovery CDs/DVDs." You can
also make the Recovery Tools CD. This CD contains utilities
that allow you to make changes to your hard disk drive; see
"Using the Recovery Tools CD."
Starting System Recovery
if the PC Is Responding
1 Turn off the PC. Disconnect all peripheral devices from
the PC except the monitor, the keyboard, and the mouse.
Turn on the PC.
2 Click Start on the taskbar, choose All Programs,
choose PC Help & Tools, and then click Compaq
System Recovery.
3 Wait until the System Recovery window appears asking
Do you really want to start System Recovery?
4 Click Yes to continue with the recovery process. If you
created recovery discs, you may be directed to insert
recovery disc #1. If the Recovery disc is a DVD, be sure
to put the disc in a DVD drive.
5 The PC starts the recovery; wait for the onscreen
instructions to display, and then follow those instructions.
6 Complete the PC startup, finish the registration process,
and wait until you see the desktop. Then, turn off the PC,
reconnect all peripheral devices, and then turn on the PC.
Starting System Recovery if the PC
Is Not Responding
1 Turn off the PC. If necessary, press and hold the On
button until the PC turns off.
2 Disconnect all peripheral devices from the PC except the
monitor, the keyboard, and the mouse.
3 Press the On button to turn on the PC.
4 During the startup, do the following to enter the System
Recovery program:
When the black screen with the Compaq logo appears,
press the F10 key on the keyboard. (You have only a few
seconds to press the F10 key before the normal startup
process continues.)
5 The PC starts the recovery; wait for the onscreen
instructions to display, and then follow those instructions.
6 Complete the PC startup, finish the registration process,
and wait until you see the desktop. Then, turn off the PC,
reconnect all peripheral devices, and turn on the PC.

My compaq presario recovery cd ask for A:>>what is


Desktop or Laptop ????....
Unfortunately, it is likely that your computer will encounter some form of system error, malware function or hard-drive crash that causes the operating system to become unstable.
To help computer users resolve these issues, HP includes the HP Recovery Manager in each Compaq Presario.
Use the Recovery Manager to recover your system without the need for any additional software CDs, technical support or repair service.
The recovery process should only be used as a last step in troubleshooting your computer, as all personal data files will be erased during the recovery.

Close any programs running on your computer and remove any unnecessary hardware devices that are connected to the computer.
Restart the computer. Press the "F11" key once your computer begins to start up again and before the Windows logo appears.
The HP Recovery Manager will automatically launch.
Click the "System Recovery" option and click "Next." Select "No" in the Microsoft restore window that opens and click "Next."
Select the "Backup Your Files First" option and connect an external hard drive or insert a blank DVD or CD to store the backup files.
Follow the instructions in the wizard to select the files you want to save.
Click "Next" to begin the restore process.
The Recovery Manager will reformat the hard drives and recover the system to a functional operating condition.

When i start my laptop it wont start windows, it just goes straight to a windows error recovery screen, it says windows failed to start. a recent hardware or software change might be the cause. it...


I recently had the same problem. I also thought it was a windows update that caused this: forced shutdown, startup repair, etc. The last time it did startup repair it could not repair it. Lucky for me my pc still had one month of warranty left. So after leaving it with the "pro's" for a week, I called to say what's up, figured it out yet? The techs told me that they had run every diagnostic test available and all the hardware had passed safely. So I asked what it could be and they said, more than likely, that Windows Vista software had somehow become corrupted- the only repair to fix this? a complete recovery. They offered to do a recovery for me for $130- lose all info except what's on recovery partition.
(No, thanks, I'll do it myself.) Went online, found how to start recovery (Alt + Fn + F11, for my Gateway DX4710), did it myself, works fine now, haven't had a problem since.

On a side note, if your RECOVERY software becomes corrupted, you will need recovery disks to fix this. I got lucky this time, but bought a set of those (JIC) for 20$.

I now do a backup at least once a month so it won't be a TOTAL loss should it ever happen again.

As a worst case scenario, if you need to figure out how to recover your computer, looks like HP owns Compaq. You could start here:

How to clear and restore?


Your notebook should have came with a set of recovery CDs. If so you can recover your PC with the following steps:

  1. If the PC works, back up all data files that you want to save onto removable media, such as a DVD. Remove the backup DVD you have made.
  2. Press the Eject button on the disc drive, and wait for the tray to open. Insert Recovery DVD disc #1 and close the tray.
  3. Turn off the PC.
    • If the notebook works: Click Start on the taskbar, click Turn Off Computer , and then click Turn Off . Or
    • Press and hold the On button approximately 5 seconds until it turns off.
  4. Disconnect all devices.
  5. Press the On button.
  6. Recovery starts; wait for the onscreen instructions to display, and then follow those instructions.
    • For standard recovery, press R . Select Next to proceed with the System Recovery. Select Yes to start the recovery. Insert the remaining recovery discs when directed. Or
    • For full System Recovery, press F . Select Yes to perform a full System Recovery. Insert the remaining discs when directed.
  7. When the recovery program finishes, the drive tray ejects. Remove the disc.
  8. Click Restart.
  9. After it restarts, a series of startup screens appears. To proceed with the initial Microsoft Windows setup, complete the setup screens that appear.
  10. Complete the startup, finish the registration process, and wait until you see the desktop.
  11. When you have access to the Windows desktop, connect to the Internet as soon as possible to update the DEC software as follows:
  1. Update the system virus definitions .
  2. Get the latest critical system updates using Microsoft's Windows Update .
  3. Update the HP software on the system .

If you don't have any CDs you could try the F10 key to see if you have the contents of the CDs hidden on your hard drive. It is the same steps as above except instead of inserting a CD you would use the following as step 2:
When the Compaq logo appears, press the F10 key on the keyboard. (You have only a few seconds to press the F10 key before the normal startup process continues.)
If you this doesn't work and you are certain you don't have your recovery CDs you can get a new set directly from Compaq from the following site:
