You will probably have to re-install windows your laptop might have come with an install disc, insert that into your cd drive and restart your laptop, windows should walk you through the installation process.

I have Compaq Presario and got Virus "ThinkPoint". I want to re-install win xp but in Bios the only two option is there one Boot from Floppy and other ATAPI CD ROM . But unfortunately I have no...


Find someone with that copy of iwndows and copy the cd are use it to boot the system and fix the re-installation.... if bye chance the virus is still there, a fresh installation will get rid of it, jus be sure to get the drivers first though... (you can use drivermax for that!)

System restore disk for HP compaq Presario 1700 help


hi, you may need to set your laptop to boot from the cd/dvd. you will need to enter the bios and check the boot priority. power the laptop as soon as you power on press either F2 or F10 to enter the bios (you have to be pretty quick with the F2 button). once in the bios look for the heading BOOT or BOOT PRIORITY F5 or F6 willchange the boot order.
hope this helps

Compaq presario v5000


Boot into Setup and run the TOOLS / PRIMARY HDD TEST / SHORT TEST.

If it fails, try another HDD.

If OK, verify Boot Order is Floppy, CD-ROM, HDD. Exit Setup.

Print Table 1 Low Level Format instructions from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/106419

Boot with a DOS disk that contains Debug. Run the Table 1 script. Turn V5000 Off.

Boot with the HP Operating System CD. XP install should now proceed normally.

Good luck.
