How to find factory settings partition


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.

I have a compaq computer that works great for 1 hour the shuts do


Is it shuting down? Or just instantly going off.

If it is shutting down, adjust the power settings.
  • Control Panel
  • Power Options
  • Make sure the scheme you want is selected. For a desktop it should be Home/Office or Always on.
  • Make sure that System Standby and Hibernate (if available) are set to the length you want.

I recently had a new power supply installed in my compaq presario SR1318NX, now the fans run almost constantly. The air from the fans does not feel hot, nor does the tower. Is this serious?


Hi,

In a desktop computer the fan is supposed to run constantly otherwise the processor would get that hot the system would repeatedly shut down or even damage the processor or motherboard.

If the fan is noisy then chances are that the fan blades need cleaning of dust.

Other than that you have nothing to worry about.


Regards.

Compaq presario sr1115cl wont power up


Remove the power supply after everything is unplugged and take it to your nearest electronics store. They should have a tester there. This is probably the problem.

Sleep mode


Depends how it is set-up. If it is just in standby then simply moving the mouse or pushing a key should work. If it is in hibernate, then you have to push the power button for it to power back on.
