If you are talking about OS then you have to see if there is a previous system restore is established, if so then go ahead with that and your windows will be restored.

If you are talking about motherboard settings, then please do ask hp they will have a better solution for that.

thanks

Some system come with the option to restore default settings so you will not need the CD. Usually there is a utility tool provided by the manufacturer that you can use within windows to restore factory settings or by pressing alt+F10/F11/F12 at the startup menu, and this will take you to restoring the factory settings. If you have not got the utility installed or there is no partition with the default settings, the following link click here (HP owns compaq so the link will take you to hp website )will take your where you can download this utility for your system. This SoftPaq contains an InstallShield utility that allows the user to restore the original registry defaults for the Compaq Evo N620c. These system default settings include the the default Power management settings. You might have to free space by deleting stuff and uninstalling unnecessary apps it is not exactly formatting but you have no recovery CD and no Partition that includes the factory defaults then I guess it is not a bad option.
By the way Your laptop will have the Authentication key for the operating system of your PC at the bottom of your laptop this I do not know how useful that is but it was worth mentioning good luck

Since you have an HP, you can order a replacement set of "System Restore" disks from HP, for less than $20 -- much less than buying a "retail" copy of Windows. That set of CDs will have the correct drivers and the same "factory-installed" applications.

Resetting


By factory settings, I am assuming you are reffering to the Operating System, or Windows XP.  If this is not a correct assumption, please let me know.
Unfortunately, there is no way to reset the PC to a factory default configuration with out the discs provided by the manufacturer.  Those discs not only contain the operating system install files, but also any drivers that are used that are specific to models made by that manufacturer.
Newer PCs skip the need of discs by creating a "Recovery Partition" on your hardrive.  Think of this as a snapshot taken of your PC just as it leaves the manufacturer.  It is possibly to boot to this partition, erase you current configuration, and restore this "factory default" configuration.  Unfortunately, this option is not available on your specific PC model.
It is possible to re-install the Windows operating system by using any type of Windows install media (CD,DVD,etc), but you will also have to download any special drivers (video card, sounds card, printer) from the manufacturer's web site.

How to format evo n610c without using diskettes?


Contact HP.com and see what it costs to get a set of restore disks for your computer. Windows XP was discontinued on July 1st but you might find a computer store out there that has a set for sale.
