How to find factory settings partition


While many problems can be solved by less drastic measures, Compaq owners sometimes need to restore their computers back to factory new condition.


If the operating system becomes corrupt, or if the computer is struck with a persistent virus, restoring the PC to its original factory default settings is often the best way to deal with the problem.


While older Compaqs relied on restore CDs to restore factory settings, newer machines come with a recovery partition built into the unit.


Shut down the Compaq computer and wait for it to power off.

Press the "Power" button to restart it.


Press the "F11" key as soon as you see a black screen.

This will boot the Compaq into the recovery partition.


Follow the on-screen instructions to back up any user files before the recovery process begins.

Click "Next" to start the recovery manager and follow the on-screen instructions.


Hope this helps.

How to reset compaq presario to factory settings keeps going to repair computer


Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

or

If your Compaq Presario has major issues, restoring it to factory defaults may be the best course of action.


There are a number of situations when completely restoring a computer to its factory settings is the best solution, including resolving virus infections and corrupt operating system files.


Back up all of your user data to a USB thumb drive, external hard drive or other device.

The restore process will destroy all of your data, so this is vital to do.


Turn on your computer and open your CD or DVD drive.

Place the restore CD that came with your Presario into the drive and restart your PC. If you do not have a restore CD, you can contact Compaq to order one.


Allow the computer to boot up from the restore CD.

You will see a series of messages guiding you through the restoration process, as well as several warnings that all data on the computer will be erased.


Continue the restoration process, and follow the prompts as needed.

You may need to locate the license key for your version of Windows; that key should be located on a label on the top of the computer case.


Hope this helps

I need to restore factory settings on my Compaq Mini 110 netbook, can anyone tell me how to do this?


Hello,

to reset your laptop, restart your computer and constantly press F11 once the first black screen on your laptop displays, or the Compaq logo display. Your computer will automatically load to recover manager and you can factory restore you computer from there.

2nd option: click start menu, click all programs and scroll to "Hp backup and recovery" or "Backup and recovery" click it and proceed for the factory default setting.

Good luck.

On my screen, I have "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt" Windown/System32/Config/System. You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup...


Try to boot in safe mode by pressing F8 while the system is booting.

Once in safe mode, use system restore to restore your computer state to an earlier date when this problem was not present.

Thanks
