If you have a hidden partition on your harddrive you may have to access it during a reboot through one of your F keys, it varies on different brands. Or you may have to wipe your hard drive clean and reload windows and all of your device drivers from the Compaq website.

    Hi.

    Try this >>>>


    Power down your Compaq Presario F500 notebook computer. Remove the unit's internal battery from its housing compartment.
    Use a screwdriver to unscrew and remove all of the screws from the bottom panel of your Compaq Presario F500. Use your hands to lift off the bottom panel, revealing the inside of the notebook computer.
    Look for the CMOS/BIOS chip: It will be located in the center of your computer's motherboard, which is itself located in the center of the case.
    Remove the small battery from its housing compartment on the CMOS/BIOS chip. Then, press and hold the "Power" button on the laptop's case for a few seconds. This will completely discharge all electricity from the device.
    Replace the CMOS/BIOS' battery. Place the bottom panel of the notebook computer back on and screw it back into place. Place the Compaq Presario F500's battery back into its housing compartment and press the "Power" button to turn it on. Your CMOS/BIOS will now be completely reset.
    Good luck and please let me know how you get on!!!!

    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.

    Rest my 2007 compac presaro f500 notebook to factory settings its asking fpr a eight digit factory password?


    While it is always best to exhaust all other options before taking such a drastic step, sometimes the only course of action available is to restore your computer to its original factory condition.
    If you have a Compaq Presario F500 with a damaged operating system or extensive damage from a virus or other malware, you may have no choice but to run the restore process and bring the unit back to its original factory state.

    Place the restore CD into your F500 and shut down the unit.
    Power the unit back up with the CD in the drive.
    The F500 automatically boots from the CD and starts the restore process.
    Verify that you wish to restore the F500 to its original factory settings.
    The restoration process requires your verification, since it formats the hard drive and destroys the data.
    You will need to verify that you want the hard drive to be formatted.

    Insert the operating system CD when prompted.
    Enter the license key for the operating system when prompted.
    This license key information can be found on a small tag located on the laptop itself, often on the bottom of the machine.

    Reboot the F500 when the restoration process is complete.
    Copy any backup files to the F500, and then connect to the Internet and download any new updates from the Windows Update site.
    This process can take awhile, so it is best to install the updates when you have a large block of time available.
    You should, however, download them as soon as possible to protect your computer.

    Lift up your computer and look for a tag.
    The tag will probably be located on the side of the computer, or on the bottom of the unit for a laptop.
    The service tag is generally a large black and white tag and it will say "Service Tag Number."
    Do not confuse this tag with the Windows tag, which may be located in the same area on the computer.

    Need help with Restoring computer to factory setting


    The system restore you are using is the windows microsoft one and is unable to do a FULL system restore.

    The whole process is listed in part of the manual but just in case you cannot find them then you can get the part that you are interested in on the COMPAQ SITE

    You are interested in pages 8 to10 it may be that you already have a recovery partition set up which would help you greatly.

    This involves repeatedly pressing F11 whilst the computer is booting up and then selecting RECOVERY MANAGER as outlined in this manual. Then selecting ADVANCED OPTIONS / RECOVERY / NEXT.

    with any luck that should get you sorted but do remember this process could wipe your personal information so get that off the computer BEFORE you do any of the above.

    If you get stuck post back in this thread and I will see what else can be done
