If F10 doesn't work and you don't have a recovery disk then you will have to try and find a recovery disk from somewhere or re-install windows. If you don't have a windows disk and you can't get hold of one there is nothing you can do apart from taking it to be done somewhere.

    The reason why I want to put back to actors settings is because it is running really low it take forever for a website to come up. Do you have any solution

  • Gerald Manuel Nov 26, 2012

    the things you can do are to do a disk clean up and defragment your hard drive. if you can you can add more memory which should speed it up as well.

SOURCE: restore factory settings

what i would do is go into dos. If you cant get into dos find a windows 98 setup disk 3.5" this will have the dos files that will allow the computer to reconize a generic cd rom. This should allow you to get your recovery disk working. Your software problem could of created a firmware problem also. Not reconizing the cd rom. This solution will provide the basics to get your cd rom loading the recovery disk for you. If you have questions or more problems feel free to contact me and i will take you through it step by step

SOURCE: I forgot my e-recovery password, no recovery disks...

Don't you have created the password Recovery disk early?
If you do, you can sign into safe mode and recover the password.
If you don't have the password reset disk. you have to take use of the 3rd party utility,
Windows Password Recovery 6.0 is highly recommend. It is fast and easy to use.

Where can I find a recovery disk set for compaq presario sr2013wm. compaq no longer offers the recovery disk.


Click HERE to find the download site. Enter the Operating System you have and you should be able to download what you need from there. If you are using a different pc, put it on a flash drive or cd and transfer from that to the Compaq.
Hope that helps

Compaq presario sr2013wm will start and show the compaq screen, Then goes to a blank screen with a flashing cursor in the upper left hand corner. Can use Escape to get into Boot Menu, F1 to get into...


try opening up your side of your pc boot it up and listen to the harddrive for noise with it ticking in a screen like you say it usually means your harddrive is failing or the boot is corrupt on it

You will need to reinstall the OS (operating system) by using the disk that came with your system, it may be called a restore disk or operating system, and their may be more than one disk!

Put wrong recovery disk into new computer.


have a look here
and more pertinent, the F11 option here. If you have the right disks, you should still be able to run them...you will just have to boot windows from the recovery disks...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Restoring factory setting


you should have received some discs when you bought the PC...if not, try looking in your programs list for the application to create the Recovery discs.
Some, not all Compaq's have a F10 recovery (at boot press F10)

be sure to save your personal data to another source (USB stick, CD...etc)

How to reset my compaq computer back to the factory setting


Reset your operating system software (Windows XP..)to Compaq factory setting : restarting your computer. Hold down F10 key, your computer will go into recovery software provided windows recovery was preloaded into your hard disk during installation.
Follow on screen instruction.

If it your Bios you want to restore to factory setting, restarting your computer hold F1 key, entering BIOS set up. Look and press the key assigned "Default Loading" save change and exit Bios set up.
Does that solve your curiosity
