    It is actually a laptop, and I have tried to go into stup and load default settings, but the problem still remains. Do you think re-installing windows would help?

Try running in safe mode on your computer . (keep pressing f8 until you load up the confguration boot screen.
Then choose start windows in safe mode.. when it starts hit control+alt+delete to get ur task manager up delete any suspicious processes (((((maybe ones you havent recognised running before you got the virus)))) this would stop your pc from restarting itself if this was the case ,, then go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com/uk/ run a free online virus scan .. may take a while but i did all this before when my pc kept restarting..and it found worms and all sorts then deleted them.
I restarted windows normally and the virus was gone.

How to reset compaq presario to factory settings keeps going to repair computer


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

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".

I want to reset my compaq presario cq60-215dx notebook pc


Hi

More information needed.

What do you mean by "reset"?

If you mean you want to restore it to a previous setting before, for example, a virus infection:

start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore > restore my computer to an earlier time > select date and event on calendar and event schedule > restore.

If you mean restore your computer to factory default settings:

When the computer is booting, you will see, at the bottom of the screen, an F (function) key that takes you into the Recovery mode.

Recovery will wipe everything else off except Windows and the programs and drivers that the computer originally came with.

Hope this helps.

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.
