The procedure is actually correct. but if your computer is fast you may miss it. try this, upon turning the computer on, start pressing the CTRL+F11 immediately. if you have reformated your HDD then most likely you've lost the recovery partition for the PC Restoration.

Go on Ebay and purchase a Windows XP OS Disk with OEM number there. Make sure its Original and not someone's copy. I use WIndows XP Professional myself.

there are many options open to you.
Boot into safe mode and see if you get a good result. Then if you can, connect to internet and get the new drivers for the video card or built in video.
try this first and we can go from there.
Thanks!

PC or monitor, signal problems


your monitor is telling you it's on it's last legs..either that or your compaq has a bad video section. either is more vital than a video cable being loose.
