Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
How do i delete everything and restore to factory settings?
Usually you need 1 of 3 things:
1) A restore CD or DVD that came with your computer. If you have this insert it in the drive and reboot.
2) Look in Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools and see if there is a Recovery program listed that you can run. (Note: Not Restore.)
3) When you begin booting the computer watch closely at any prompts such as: For Recovery Press F10 or something similiar. It could be any F key.
Remember when you run a recovery program, you may need to reinstall drivers for things such as your motherboard, sound, network adapter, video, etc.
You will also need to run Windows update asap to get up to date.
Finally, you will need to reinstall any software that was not on your computer when you bought it.
