Yes I used the boot up disc. There are 8 discs total. It took the boot up disc then the second one then when I put in the third like it prompt it wouldn't take. It's like it's not reading any more.

I went and redid everything and now it won't even take the boot disc.

Got a virus on compaq presario cq61, shut down pretty much everything. need to restore to original settings but don't know how?


If you made a Backup disc from the OS itself, insert it into your DVD drive and restart computer. When prompted the BIOS screen, press Delete and make sure that the DVD boots first. When it boots into the DVD, follow the on screen instructions. If you dont have this disc, reformat your computer using the non-Compaq Windows 7 DVD and install it as you would on any other normal PC, and let the Win7 find the updates and drivers online for you.

Reformatting compaq presario


I wanna ask one thing, does your compter show CD/DVD drive in My Computer menu? If yes, then its hardware of DVD/CD drive problem, not a virus. Clean the lens of drive with fine cotton swab, hope it works/ reads.
