    How do I set a Compaq Presario SR1403WM back to Factory settings


    Step 1:
    While many problems with Compaq Presario computers can be solved by less drastic means, there are times when the best course of action is to set the computer back to its original factory default state. Issues with persistent viruses or spyware often require this drastic step, as do problems with a corrupt operating system. Learning how to restore your computer to its original state is an important troubleshooting tool.

    Shut down your computer and restart it. Watch for the Compaq logo, then press the "F1" key to enter setup. Press the right arrow within setup to go to the Boot menu. Press the down arrow to access the "Boot Device Priority" option. Change the first boot device to CD-ROM by pressing the down arrow until "CD-ROM" is displayed. Eject the CD tray and place the recovery CD that came with your computer into the tray. If you do not have a recovery CD, you can order one directly from Hewlett Packard. Shut down and restart the computer. The Presario will automatically boot from the CD and begin the recovery process. Select the operating system your computer shipped with. Many Compaq recovery CDs support multiple operating systems, so be sure to choose the operating system your computer shipped with. Insert the operating system CD when prompted. Enter the license key for the operating system when prompted. The license key is typically found on a small tag located on the top or side of the computer.

    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 want to know how to restore mr presario compaq sr1720nx back to factory settings


    There are multiple instances when you would want to wipe your PC's memory clean and reset it to the factory defaults.


    Called "formatting," it is often the last-ditch effort to restore a PC to functionality.

    You will also have to format your PC if it gets crippled by viruses.


    Although these instructions are for the Compaq Presario, the steps are essentially the same for all Windows based PCs. Be sure that you want to delete everything this process is irreversible.


    Back up any data that you want to keep by saving it to removable media, such as external hard drives, flash drives, DVD-R, etc.

    Unplug all peripheral devices, except for the keyboard and mouse.


    Turn on the computer. As the computer is starting, repeatedly press F1 to initiate the recovery process.

    When the BIOS setup screen appears, press the right arrow key to select "Boot".


    Press the down arrow key to select "Boot Device Priority" and press "Enter".

    Press the down arrow key to select "CD-ROM" and press "+" to move it to the top of the list.


    Open the CD-ROM tray, and insert the system recovery disk.

    Exit the BIOS setup by pressing "F10". Be sure to select "Save Changes and Exit".


    System recovery should initiate. If it does not, and the PC loads Windows, then you have either failed to set the CD-ROM at the top of the boot priority list or you exited the BIOS setup without saving.


    Press "R" to begin the recovery process.

    When prompted, select "Full System Recovery".


    Restart the computer when the process has completed.


    Hope this helps.

    You can only restore to factory settings if there is a recovery console stored on a hidden partition
    (try CTRL+F11) at start-up--otherwise need to reinstall the OS with a disk.
