I am trying to restore my HP Compaq Presario CQ61 100ES series to factory settings and cannot access the recovery partition D: by using f11, any ideas?

If your restore partition is ruined you will need either borrow an operating cd from a friend with same OS or buy the cd from HP. If its still under warrenty HP will reimage the hard drive free.

Hi purple7558

did you mean format the hard disk and then install the operating system.?
press F10 to enter the bios setup, then set the boot sequence to cd rom first.
insert your windows cd into the cd rom.
save settings and restart. after the computer restarts it will detect that you enter cd then press enter.
the next process is the usual kind of format and install your operating system.

By default all the hp notebook and desktops come with a recovery partition. To access it boot the computer, and on the Compaq logo Start Tapping the F11 key on your keyboard. This will take you to the Recovery Manager. Click on the Advance options button to get the various options for recovery and backup.
note: you will be able to access the Recovery partitions only if you have not made any changes to the system hardware or Operating system.
Hope you find this information helpful.

Partition not 100% on laptop 700 presario

From the description loo\ks like it's not a partition problem, but the Compaq CD.
Try to partition Hard Drive using Windows 98 bootable CD.
Try to install Win XP from different CD - doesn't have to be Compaq. Later you can download drivers.

Insert the recovery disc, included with your laptop when you unpacked it, reboot the laptop and follow the instruction.
