    No I don't but I am not aware that I received any discs and thought these days that they were on the hard drive but partitioned.

    I do not have the system recovery disk for my laptop. The Compaq Presario M2000 PC Notebook. The instructions said to complete a system restore restart computer and press F10 all this does is ask if I want to startup in safe mode. How do I do the system recovery to set things back to the factory settings?

If you have important files then you should backup it first.

You insert the recovery disc and start with it. the system will runit automatically and restore the original one. Hoever im not sure if the 2nd partition will be affected.

You also insert any windows Bootable installation disk and from there, there is an option that you format only the C:\drive however if you have no important files on 2nd drive or d:\drive you can delete both the partion and repartition it with 2 partition drive.

more notes in installation windows is here:

hope this help,

Plese leave comment b4 u rate, Thanks! melnavz

Just did this last night actually

put in the windows os cd, and when the screen says press any key to boot from cd, do so

to restore to factory settings without creating a partition, you can choose to delete your C drive partition, after which it will automatically restart and install from the os cd. Then install all your drivers and you should be ready to go
