You'll need a copy of the OS. You can only get drivers off compaq.com. If you don't have the original DVD, sometimes there is a partition dedicated to giving you the original OS back on your hard-drive (and it's a more modern way of doing it). Press F12 or any other option it gives you to boot to when your computer starts, and select anything that looks like a restore. This often works well on newer laptops.
If you don't have an OS, nothing will happen.

How do i get to the recovery partition


No. You'll need "Restore disks" which is Windows + all HP drivers and software.
Or you can install OS separately and download drivers from HP website.

Cant install recovery disks after a hard drive reformat!


the recovery disk is designed to repair or restore a system to its previous factory condition and is not a full installation. the formating of your hdd would have erased all the data required for this process to be completed. you can try a recovery utility that may be able to help you at this link. the disk might not have been saved in an .iso format to tell the computer to run it before starting an OS. if this disk is recognized and runs on your system then you will need to attempt a recovery, which is unlikely since the drive has allready been formated many necessary system files may not be able to be restored. at this point a complete new install will be necessary.
Good Luck!

You dont have to reformat anything because hp have a system recovery option on their models dating from 2003 onwards, just restart your computer and press f10 and follow the prompts and this will install the computer to the factory settings and dont forget to save any of your important documents and pictures to a flash drive, cd or external drive

Notebook is very slow want to format


You can do that by inserting a bootable windows xp or other opetrating system. And then boot the system in CD/DVD rom drive.

However if you have a cd/DVD system recovery you can do that by booting also on that CD/DVD and then just follow the onscreen instruction.

You can download the CD utilities of your stuff here: http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html?pageDisplay=drivers

see this site for more information on how to install operating system http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316941

hope this help.
any problem arising thereto please notify me for further instruction.

Presario V2000 Random Rebooting


You need to format and install windows from a known good disk, of course you'll also need to obtain the drivers for the laptop as well.
I assume when you reformatted the hard drive, you didn't save the recovery partition?
If that's the case, you'll need to go to HP support for thew drivers.
It sounds like software issues. Good luck
