While many problems can be solved by less drastic measures, Compaq owners sometimes need to restore their computers back to factory new condition.
If the operating system becomes corrupt, or if the computer is struck with a persistent virus, restoring the PC to its original factory default settings is often the best way to deal with the problem.
While older Compaqs relied on restore CDs to restore factory settings, newer machines come with a recovery partition built into the unit.
Shut down the Compaq computer and wait for it to power off.
Press the "Power" button to restart it.
Press the "F11" key as soon as you see a black screen.
This will boot the Compaq into the recovery partition.
Follow the on-screen instructions to back up any user files before the recovery process begins.
Click "Next" to start the recovery manager and follow the on-screen instructions.
Hope this helps.

Turn on your computer. Right away there will be a black screen. You can restore factory settings without a CD, too. This will reset your BIOS.Press F1 when the black screen appears; you will enter the setup configuration mode. You will be presented with a menu.Select Restore Factory Defaults. Your computer will do all the work for you. As with the CD, this process may take several hours.
