Do you have the recovery cd's. If so boot from the recovery cd#1 and follow the prompt to format and install your OS.
If you don't have the recovery cd's, You can use a WinXP cd if your license is on a sticker on your computer.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Use the above link , and chat online with a customer service rep, give them your compaq model information along with the correct operating system and they can send you one to your home. Hope this helps. Otherwise just format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system again, just make sure you have a good copy of windows xp or vista before you format the hard drive.
