SOURCE: Recovery partition - repair

You have obviously deleted the partition that the laptop could recover from but usually if you are supplied a cd to recover windows, there is normally a drivers folder within the cd but not the aplications, such as anti virus although these are only for a trial period. for things like microsoft works if supplied, are normally on a seperate cd. Without knowledge of your partition software, you should be able to partition the HDD and then copy the files from one drive to another, but the restore may not work as the system files may not weave together when you come to restore. I would imagine it's only the drivers that's youre main concern, which you can install from your other laptop.

SOURCE: how do i restore my

Your computer is infected with viruses. Solution: install and update anti-virus. You can use anti-virus free (Avira or AVG). Perform a virus scan process, with the option, if a virus is detected, the primary action "Repair" and secondary action "Quarantine".

hopefully help

Restore compaq presario cq62 to factory settings

1. Turn off your computer.
2. Press the power button to turn your computer on.
3. Hit F11 a few times quickly, while the launch screen is still up. This will launch the Recovery Manager. (If you see the Windows 7 boot logo, you've missed your chance and need to restart your computer and try again from step 2.)
4. On the left side it will say "I need help immediately". Underneath that there will be an option that says "System Recovery". Click on that.
5. There will be an option to either back up your files before restoring, or to recover without backing up your files. In my case, I'm recovering without backing up my files.
6. It will tell you to make sure all devices are disconnected from your computer. Make sure they are, and then click "OK".
7. There will be a "Welcome to the Recovery Manager" screen. Click "Next".
8. It will begin to reformat your partition and to reinstall the Windows 7 setup files. Once it's done doing that, click "Next". You'll be brought to a page saying "Recovery is Complete". After that all you need to do is reboot, and it will bring you through the wizard to set up Windows 7, just like on a new computer!
Good luck :)

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.

    How to clear and restore?

    Your notebook should have came with a set of recovery CDs. If so you can recover your PC with the following steps:

    1. If the PC works, back up all data files that you want to save onto removable media, such as a DVD. Remove the backup DVD you have made.
    2. Press the Eject button on the disc drive, and wait for the tray to open. Insert Recovery DVD disc #1 and close the tray.
    3. Turn off the PC.
      • If the notebook works: Click Start on the taskbar, click Turn Off Computer , and then click Turn Off . Or
      • Press and hold the On button approximately 5 seconds until it turns off.
    4. Disconnect all devices.
    5. Press the On button.
    6. Recovery starts; wait for the onscreen instructions to display, and then follow those instructions.
      • For standard recovery, press R . Select Next to proceed with the System Recovery. Select Yes to start the recovery. Insert the remaining recovery discs when directed. Or
      • For full System Recovery, press F . Select Yes to perform a full System Recovery. Insert the remaining discs when directed.
    7. When the recovery program finishes, the drive tray ejects. Remove the disc.
    8. Click Restart.
    9. After it restarts, a series of startup screens appears. To proceed with the initial Microsoft Windows setup, complete the setup screens that appear.
    10. Complete the startup, finish the registration process, and wait until you see the desktop.
    11. When you have access to the Windows desktop, connect to the Internet as soon as possible to update the DEC software as follows:
    1. Update the system virus definitions .
    2. Get the latest critical system updates using Microsoft's Windows Update .
    3. Update the HP software on the system .

    If you don't have any CDs you could try the F10 key to see if you have the contents of the CDs hidden on your hard drive. It is the same steps as above except instead of inserting a CD you would use the following as step 2:
    When the Compaq logo appears, press the F10 key on the keyboard. (You have only a few seconds to press the F10 key before the normal startup process continues.)
    If you this doesn't work and you are certain you don't have your recovery CDs you can get a new set directly from Compaq from the following site:
