Compaq Presario 2100

I want to delete everything from my laptop as though I am just beginning and I don't know what keys to press. I know when I had a Dell Computer I would hold down the control key while tapping F10 repeatedly until it got went to the screen that told me I was going to lose all my data. I really need to do this because it is the only way I can get rid of the virus that has been on my computer for a while now.

If the only problem is a virus download AVASTFREE and schedule a boot time scan as this will run a complete scan before entering windows.

You have several weeks before you have to register, registration is free they will e-mail you the registration number.

Full format of compaq presario 2100

Most notebooks have a separate partition on the hard drive that holds the recovery media needed to restore the unit.
You can usually run this by pressing F10 during the boot up process. You may need to press it several times in order to get it work.
If that doesn't work, then you will need to contact Compaq in order to order the recovery media kit.

Blue characters on the keyboard when I type

It is a combination of key known as "Function" (Fn, for short). You have to press it and hold while pressing other keys showing the blue letters on it. The most common use is to make a virtual Numerical Keypad on laptops, so you can perform calculations. To be back to normal mode, you need to press FN+F8 (or the key with the Calculator icon).

My laptop won't start up

It maybe stuck in a hibernation mode.

Make sure to hold down the power button for 6 to 10 secs.

That should force the laptop to shutdown completely and then should be able to boot back up by pressing the power button like normal. You may get a choice about deleting hibernation info, do that and you should be back up and running. If not, press F8 while booting (before you see the XP logo) and choose safe mode, if you can get into safe mode, good, just reboot and it should go back into normal mode. There maybe more to it, please let me know.

Reboot my laptop

If you want to complete erase the hard drive and start fresh you will need an operating system disc, there no other way, other than going through and manually deleting every file and program that you don't want. Doing a system restore back to the earliest point, will still leave any installed files and programs intact.
