Re: How do i do a destructive recovery??

Insert the recovery disc, included with your laptop when you unpacked it, reboot the laptop and follow the instruction.

If your laptop came with a recovery partition, restart it and hit F8 function key while it is booting up. This should bring up a menu, select the recovery option.

Unless you have a backup on your hard drive petition, you will not be able to restore unless you have the origional OS Disks. The only other option is to purchase a new OS

Put wrong recovery disk into new computer.

have a look here
and more pertinent, the F11 option here. If you have the right disks, you should still be able to run will just have to boot windows from the recovery disks...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

You should start tapping the F11 key right after you turn the laptop on. It should go into the recovery mode, and you can select either a windows recovery (saving your data) or a full destructive recovery. If you feel you have picked up a virus, the destructive recovery is best, as this will put the laptop back to like new, out of the box condition.

It cant produce sound

It can be that the sound card driver is not installed properly or it may be outdated. You may try some troubleshooting methods on this link.

If you're going to download the latest driver for your Compaq Presario 700 series, be sure to select the correct model number of your laptop. I have checked the site and there were several versions for Compaq Presario 700.
