If you have windows nt, 2000, or xp, you will need to use the setup cd for that OS that came with your computer.

If you don't have one you can download an iso cd image or a floppy disk image from The exe files from that site are safe to use. Just insert a floppy and run the program, and it will create a bootdisk.

Let me know how it goes.

Full format of compaq presario 2100

Most notebooks have a separate partition on the hard drive that holds the recovery media needed to restore the unit.
You can usually run this by pressing F10 during the boot up process. You may need to press it several times in order to get it work.
If that doesn't work, then you will need to contact Compaq in order to order the recovery media kit.
