Hiya do you know if you have a recovery partition? if so pressing f12 on startup enters the recovery partition, the down side is if this does work you will lose everything as it will be back to factory settings

hope this helps

Enter BOS setup
F1 or F10 Enter Setup at the red Compaq logo or blue HP logo
Boot menu Below is a summary of what is contained on the Boot tab of the BIOS Setup:
  • The order for the bottom process; for example: Removable devices, CD ROM, and hard drive.
  • Boot-time Diagnostic screen

strongly urge to update bios too when possible.

How to get to boot chooer on tne m700 starts


Hi.

  1. Turn on the computer. When the Compaq logo displays, press F10. Or,
  2. During Power On Self Test (POST), and after the memory check completes, press F10 as soon as you see a small white square flashing on the top right corner of the screen.
  3. In the computer setup, use the right arrow to move the selection to the Advanced menu.
  4. Use the down arrow to move the selection down to Boot options, and press Enter. The Boot options menu pops up with four boot order options.
  5. Use the down arrow to move the selection.
  6. Press the left arrow to change the order of Notebook.
  7. Press F10 to accept the change.
  8. Press ESC to jump back File menu, and then move the selection down to "Save changes and exit".
  9. Press Enter. If asked to save changes and exit, press F10.
On some laptops you can change the boot order by tapping the F12 key as the computer starts up.



Regards.

(A) Try interrupting the boot sequence and telling the computer to boot using the last known good configuration. Here's how: 1) Turn the computer on, and press F8 repeatedly until the boot options menu appears (the menu items include "Start Windows Normally," "Use Last Known Good Configuration," etc.). Use the arrow keys to select "Last Known Good Configuration" and press ENTER. The computer should boot correctly.

if it dont this is the procedure given below to format the whole operating sys 1) Put the CD in the CD drive and turn the computer on. 2) As the computer begins to turn on, you should see the message "Press __ to enter setup" (it's usually F1, F2, or F4 - models vary). Press that key.
3) You should then see the Setup screen for the BIOS ("Built-In Operating System") - using the arrows, find the "boot disk priority" settings and select your CD Drive as the first priority.
4) Exit setup, saving changes (usually by pressing F10). The computer should then boot normally using the CD.

Have a friend that can't boot his computer to windows xp


Before trying to use any of Dell-net's suggestions, we've got to get you into the bios.

It looks generally like this:

You should see a message displayed when you start the computer that says press "Del or F2 or F10" to enter setup.

Once we get here, we can proceed.
