Use a reinstall disk. That is all you can do. You will have to reinstall windows. You can go back any further because of the restore point. Even using this feature is not completly effective. Reinstalling though, will start you out on a clean slate.

    How to find factory settings partition


    While many problems can be solved by less drastic measures, Compaq owners sometimes need to restore their computers back to factory new condition.


    If the operating system becomes corrupt, or if the computer is struck with a persistent virus, restoring the PC to its original factory default settings is often the best way to deal with the problem.


    While older Compaqs relied on restore CDs to restore factory settings, newer machines come with a recovery partition built into the unit.


    Shut down the Compaq computer and wait for it to power off.

    Press the "Power" button to restart it.


    Press the "F11" key as soon as you see a black screen.

    This will boot the Compaq into the recovery partition.


    Follow the on-screen instructions to back up any user files before the recovery process begins.

    Click "Next" to start the recovery manager and follow the on-screen instructions.


    Hope this helps.

    You can only restore to factory settings if there is a recovery console stored on a hidden partition
    (try CTRL+F11) at start-up--otherwise need to reinstall the OS with a disk.

    <windows root>\system32\hal.dll is corrupt or missing


    See if you can get into safe mode. If you can't then your system files are corrupted and you'll have to restore your computer back to factory defaults.

    I believe on your compaq presario they have a built in factory restore and its either accessed by the F10 or F11 key when you first turn on the computer. You'll know when you first turn on the computer at the compaq logo screen.

    Let me know if I can help you further.

    The quick restore dosen`t work


    What operating system you are using before installing windows xp. If it is windows 98, Your restore cd will restore windows 98. if you want to restore to factory settings pls boot from the restore cd and format the harddisk. Becareful, this will erase your entire data on the harddisk which cannot be recover. If you are using licenced (not pirated) windows xp boot from it and reinstall windows xp so that you can run the os smoothly. But in either case becarefull when you are formating, it will destroy entire data and you may endup in soup. feel free to revert back for further quiries
