Start -->All program -->Accessories -->system tool --> system restore ..That is one solution or if you want to reset all you should format it with Fdisk..

Can i restore my compaq presario cq60 notebook to factory setting without cd ? its vista


hi.
there are two ways to completely restore settings of a computer:
1- enter Bios of your notebook (by pressing "delete" repeatedly") and select restore to manufacturer's settings.(or load from manufacture settings). THIS CAN RESTORE SETTINGS OF YOUR HARDWARE.

2- for restoring settings of Windows:
restart your notebook and before windows starts up (showing "windows starting") press F8 repeatedly.
then choose "load from last good configuration".

I have a hp compaq nx6320 laptop. I need to install windowsXP and I don't have drivers CD. Can I install windows Xp without this the drivers CD?


Yes you can. Windows may well have some of the drivers but in my experience usually not all of them. You can download the drivers for that laptop here. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=1839169&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=1839144&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=2094
Probably best to get the drivers downloaded and copied to cd/dvd or removable flash drive before you do the installation.
Sometimes there will be a hidden drive on the computer which contains the data needed to set the computer back to a factory setting. i.e how it came when you first bought it with all the software and drivers already installed.
here is some infor from hp.com regarding factory restore which might be applicable to your laptop.

How to format my compaq pressario cq40 604tx laptop with xp


hi

Boot from your XP install CD and select the option to format the C:
drive. If you don't have an install CD, use the "System Restore" CD or
DVD that came with your system. These restore your system to factory
settings. There're still other ways to format your C: drive, but
without either an install CD or restore one, you'll end up with an
unusable system after formatting the C: drive.
If you use the XP install CD, you'll need to be SURE you have all the
drivers for things like your DVD/CD drive, NIC, video, audio, modem, etc.

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.

I am not able to use my DVD drive because the driver is corrupt. It is the Slimtype DVD DS8A2S-A ATA. It came with my Compaq HP. So, far I can't repair it or find a replacement for it.


fmoise914,
Your DVD is fine!!!. It is the driver that needs changing. Have you googled your Hp device? Usually when you google your device as "Slimtype DVD DS8A25-A Driver" You should see Hp site with drivers.Try that out!

Need to restore to original factory setting


For the v5000 I believe the factory restore option lays within the bios.
As soon as you start the laptop it should prompt you for 1-2 seconds to hit a certain key (usually F1, F2, or Delete) to enter setup. Navigate through each section until you find it. If its not in the Bios one of those same 3 keys or F10 usually can get you to the restore partition. After that it should do it's thing. Be sure that you have all your data backed up because it will be gone when its done.

Clean and restore my computer


Your compaq should have come with a factory CD that will allow you to restore the system.

Insert the cd and restart the computer. It should boot from the cd and ask you if you would to repair the installation (or something similar).

Without the HP CD you can pretty much hang it up with a copy of Windows.

How do I go about resetting computer to factory settings without a restore disk


No can do I'm sorry to say. Some laptops have restore partitions you can access but not Compaqs. You are encouraged to burn a restore DVD when you boot first time. You can run any licensed disc to reinstall and download the drivers from the Compaq site
