    Press the F11 key when you first turn on your laptop and as long as the hidden partition is still on the hard drive then you should be able to restore the laptop back to factory defaults that way. You actually may have to keep pressing F11 when you first turn on the laptop.

How to restore to factory settings presario cq50


2 possible solutions to this

1. Use the roll back function of your operating system to roll back to the last back up.

2. Insert your restore disk or Windows disk and do a format/clean install.

If you have a restore disc it will have prompts to "restore" your system and give you a warning about losing data-save off what you want BEFORE doing this restore

If you have standard windows disk you may want to use the format utility in windows first to clean the drive and do a fresh install.

Once installed don't forget to download updates and back up and then reload your other software.

have fun this will take several hours depeneding on the amount of stuff you have to reload and patch up.
