You can press F10 and you will get the option to take the computer to system console and then follow the steps and if you have the CD with you then follow the steps below
1 Shut down your computer and restart it. Watch for the Compaq logo, then press the "F1" key to enter setup. 2 Press the right arrow within setup to go to the Boot menu. Press the down arrow to access the "Boot Device Priority" option. Change the first boot device to CD-ROM by pressing the down arrow until "CD-ROM" is displayed. 3 Eject the CD tray and place the recovery CD that came with your computer into the tray. If you do not have a recovery CD, you can order one directly from Hewlett Packard. 4 Shut down and restart the computer. The Presario will automatically boot from the CD and begin the recovery process. 5 Select the operating system your computer shipped with. Many Compaq recovery CDs support multiple operating systems, so be sure to choose the operating system your computer shipped with. 6 Insert the operating system CD when prompted. Enter the license key for the operating system when prompted. The license key is typically found on a small tag located on the top or side of the computer.
look a tiny hole in the front of the CD/DVD drive use a paper clip to pull out the tray, when you have the tray out use the EJECT bottom in the drive to close and wait 3 seconds and press again to open, do this at least 3 times.
If your not familiar with the insides of your cpu. You can purchase an external cd/dvd/rw drive and hook it up. usually with a usb or supplied cable. To install depending on type and brand just follow the instruction that come with it. They do work very well.
