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.

That depends, what operating system are you using? if its vista or 7 you dont need a disk. Restart the pc and when the bios screen shows press f11 or what ever key is assigned to Recovery Console. Follow the prompts and your all done. If your using xp you may need the disk for the recovery. Have you considered doing a system restore? or is the problem to severe?

Compaq presario system recovery


When the initial blue HP screen appears, press the F10 key repeatedly until a recovery menu appears. The progress indicator that first appears does not indicate that a recovery is taking place. The progress indicator represents the time before the recovery process is started.

When the Recovery screen appears, click Next, and then click Yes to perform a normal, non-destructive recovery.

To perform a destructive recovery, click Advanced, and then click Yes.

CAUTION: A destructive recovery will format the hard drive. This will delete all the information on the hard drive and reinstall Windows XP and the original software that came with the computer.

After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup.

NOTE: It may take a long time to complete Windows setup. This time varies and may take over an hour, depending on the amount of files that were stored in the user account folders (Like My Documents and the Desktop.

Note:Dont foregt to backup your important files/documents.
Hope this helps !

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.
