Re: reformat the notebook with out recovery
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.

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.
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
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
