Quickrestore- keeps shutting down mid-process

Hello,
I have a presario 2100 series laptop, and i am trying to run the quickrestore disks to restore the hard drive to the factory image. i have started the process with disk one, and it shut down after about 16% now it doesn't have the operating system it needs to run the computer, so it can't start up at all now, and every time i try to boot from the quickrestore cds, it shuts down after about 11--30% completion. any suggestions/help? i tried removing the battery and running on solely ac power, doesn't make a difference.
thanks!

    i think it might be an overheating issue- it runs through the process longer if it is totally cool, but the farthest i have gotten is disk 5 of 7, then it shut down- what can i do to keep it cool?

You will have to restore all of your programs to there default value
Rather than doing them individually
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

Compaq presario 2500 laptop keeps shutting off, whether plugged in or not.


Overheating, and automatically shutting off?

Turn it off.
Disconnect the AC adapter.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job" -- blowing air into everywhere inside your computer. You could be surprised how much dust is ejected. Dust is an excellent insulator, and will make your computer run much hotter.

Trying to restore back to factory what can i


When you purchased the computer, you should have received a set of "System Restore" CD-ROMs. Use them.

If you have lost them, telephone HP/COMPAQ, and order a replacement set of "System Restore" CD-ROMs. The cost could be $20 for the set, and $20 for courier-shipping. When the disks arrive, use them.

P.S. Backup all your music/files/bookmarks/contacts before doing the "factory" reset.
