Full format of compaq presario 2100

Most notebooks have a separate partition on the hard drive that holds the recovery media needed to restore the unit.
You can usually run this by pressing F10 during the boot up process. You may need to press it several times in order to get it work.
If that doesn't work, then you will need to contact Compaq in order to order the recovery media kit.

Operating system not found

Is the hard drive being recognised. IF it is then if you format and reinstall the operating system that will fix the problem. Sometimes it's possible to repair the OP instead of doing a full format and reinstall but I rarely find that successful.

Good luck
