Question about PC Desktops
First of all,,,what type of factory settings?some settings are in the Bios which you access as soon as you turn the computer on by hitting a "F?" key,,it will tell you which key to hit when the compaq splash screen appears..and then reset to default.Other settings are in the control panel under administrative options then click on services but you have to set those manually

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.
