Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

or

If your Compaq Presario has major issues, restoring it to factory defaults may be the best course of action.


There are a number of situations when completely restoring a computer to its factory settings is the best solution, including resolving virus infections and corrupt operating system files.


Back up all of your user data to a USB thumb drive, external hard drive or other device.

The restore process will destroy all of your data, so this is vital to do.


Turn on your computer and open your CD or DVD drive.

Place the restore CD that came with your Presario into the drive and restart your PC. If you do not have a restore CD, you can contact Compaq to order one.


Allow the computer to boot up from the restore CD.

You will see a series of messages guiding you through the restoration process, as well as several warnings that all data on the computer will be erased.


Continue the restoration process, and follow the prompts as needed.

You may need to locate the license key for your version of Windows; that key should be located on a label on the top of the computer case.


Hope this helps

SOURCE: how to set my compaq presario F500 back to factory settings

If you have a hidden partition on your harddrive you may have to access it during a reboot through one of your F keys, it varies on different brands. Or you may have to wipe your hard drive clean and reload windows and all of your device drivers from the Compaq website.

SOURCE: no back up disc,now need a harsh system restore

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

SOURCE: i need help resetting my computer to its factory

Hello,

to reset your laptop, restart your computer and constantly press F11 once the first black screen on your laptop displays, or the Compaq logo display. Your computer will automatically load to recover manager and you can factory restore you computer from there.

2nd option: click start menu, click all programs and scroll to "Hp backup and recovery" or "Backup and recovery" click it and proceed for the factory default setting.

Good luck.

I want to reset my laptop to factory settings? How do I do this?


Do you have the restore disks? If you put the restore disk in your disk drive you should be able to follow the steps to reset to factory settings. When I did this to my computer, I chose the box that said "Restore computer to out of the box state"

BEFORE you do this, you should back up any text and image files that you want to keep. After resetting, your files will be lost and you will have to reinstall any programs or files that did not originally come on your computer.

Trying to restore back to factory what can i


When you purchased the computer, you should have received a set of "System Restore" CD-ROMs. Use them.

If you have lost them, telephone HP/COMPAQ, and order a replacement set of "System Restore" CD-ROMs. The cost could be $20 for the set, and $20 for courier-shipping. When the disks arrive, use them.

P.S. Backup all your music/files/bookmarks/contacts before doing the "factory" reset.

Compaq presario r 30000 need to bypass power on password    password is not working . need to restore to factory setting


Power On The Power On password is set in the System BIOS options. It prevents unwanted users from accessing the computer. By default, HP does not set the Power On password. If you set the Power On password in the System BIOS options you will be prompted for it immediately after you power on the Notebook PC. If this password is forgotten, a repair at an HP certified repair center is required to reset the computer. Please contact HP to schedule a repair. This service is not covered by the warranty. Drive Lock The Drive Lock password protects the data on your hard drive through encryption. If your computer is stolen, the data on the hard drive is inaccessible without the Drive Lock password. This password cannot be reset. If it is lost or forgotten, the hard drive must be replaced. Please contact HP to order a new hard drive. This service is not covered by the warranty.
