A freind gave me a compaq evo d300v desk top windows xp professional. How do I do factory recovery? I was told f11 but so far I was able to f8 and open windows advance options menue.

Best advice here is to get the windows 7 operating system as windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft and updates are no longer forthcoming
a factory recover may require a re-entry of the registration code so you will need to get that from your friend..

You need to start the computer with a windows install disk, or a factory recovery disk inside to reinstall the system.

Get a windows install disk and reinstall the system.
