My CQ50 came with the system recovery on another partition on the drive. Re-boot and press f11 and see if yours has it as well. If not i think Compaq's site said around $15 for a new set to be sent out.

Hope this helps

You can use a bootable operating system disc but it might not support al the hardware components in your laptop.

There is recovery partition on my compaq presario CQ50 - 209wm and I'd like some help oh how I can use that to restore/reinstall my vista?


Normally during the early start sequence (when the laptop displays the Compaq logo), you will need to press F9, F10 or F11 repeatedly (model varies)
Some also require you to hold the key down before you press the power button, then release it after the laptop has finished displaying the Compaq logo.
Hope that helps.
If you are still lost, post back.

How to restore to factory settings presario cq50


2 possible solutions to this

1. Use the roll back function of your operating system to roll back to the last back up.

2. Insert your restore disk or Windows disk and do a format/clean install.

If you have a restore disc it will have prompts to "restore" your system and give you a warning about losing data-save off what you want BEFORE doing this restore

If you have standard windows disk you may want to use the format utility in windows first to clean the drive and do a fresh install.

Once installed don't forget to download updates and back up and then reload your other software.

have fun this will take several hours depeneding on the amount of stuff you have to reload and patch up.

Hello,
Try restoring the system to the last best configuration by going to Accessories on your Start Menu and clicking on System Tools>System Restore and find a day on the calendar and click on it to restore back to that date.

If a compaq presario cq50 says error 1005, what does that mean?


Error 1005 is an HP restore error which means you need to install from a standard DVD from HP. You can order this from various websites on the internet. They are about $30-$45 plus shipping.

I have a compaq presario v-2000 and want to restore


Unfortunately, without the restore disc, she will not be able to do a system restore. You could mail her the disc overnight or something via USPS or Fed Ex.

I hope this helps :)
