Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
Depending on your version of Windows 32 or 64. 32 bit software can only use around 3.8GB's of memory no matter how much you install. So say you install 2x2GBs of memory you only use 3.8GBs. 64 bit will utilize more. There are many variations of your laptop CQ60. A free program you can use to show hardware/software specs is SPECCY found here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_speccy/. I find it quite useful.

insert the disc into the drive, restart the computer.If it doesn't boot from disc, restart again.
As it restarts, press and hold F8(may be F2 or F12 depending on the settings)until the boot options screen appears. Using the arrow up/down keys select drive "d" or what ever drive letter represents the drive you put the disc into.
It will now(or should) continue to boot from the disc, follow the onscreen instructions to restore.
