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.

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

I want to format my compaq presario sr2173wm. how do I do this


you can go to your DOS, or go to run, type cmd. and go where it says C: if you are not there already and type C:/format or C:/format.exe and that should work or you could also insert an operating system disk and boot from disk and reformat the drive that way.

Hope this helps.

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
