Unless you have a backup on your hard drive petition, you will not be able to restore unless you have the origional OS Disks. The only other option is to purchase a new OS

Tips for a great answer:
If your Compaq Presario has major issues, restoring it to factory defaults may be the best course of action.
There are a number of situations when completely restoring a computer to its factory settings is the best solution, including resolving virus infections and corrupt operating system files.
Back up all of your user data to a USB thumb drive, external hard drive or other device.
The restore process will destroy all of your data, so this is vital to do.
Turn on your computer and open your CD or DVD drive.
Place the restore CD that came with your Presario into the drive and restart your PC. If you do not have a restore CD, you can contact Compaq to order one.
Allow the computer to boot up from the restore CD.
You will see a series of messages guiding you through the restoration process, as well as several warnings that all data on the computer will be erased.
Continue the restoration process, and follow the prompts as needed.
You may need to locate the license key for your version of Windows; that key should be located on a label on the top of the computer case.
Hope this helps

When you restore your system back to the new factory settings, it will wipe your hard drive clean and do a fresh install of the operating system with the original factory setting.
To start this process, unplug all extra devices from your computer
(printers, external hard drives, etc.) as these can interfere with the system restore.
Starting with Windows XP, most systems with issued a system recovery disk in case of any problems with the factory installation.
Check the documentation and disks that came with your computer to determine if you have one of these system disks.
If you do have a copy of this disk, place it in your CD/DVD drive and restart your computer.
If you do NOT have a copy of this disc, skip to step 3 for further instructions.
Once you restart your computer, a screen will appear with the words.
Press Any Key to Boot From CD. Once you press a key, a screen will come up containing instructions to format your hard drive and restore the original factory settings.
Follow the on-screen prompts to finish the installation.
Once the restore is complete, remove your Recovery CD from the disk drive so that your computer does not try to boot from the CD again.
Restart your computer to complete the restore.
3. If you do not have a System Restore disk, then your computer should have a recovery partition on your hard drive, separate from the main partition of the disk.
Unplug all external devices and restart your computer.
When the loading screen comes on with the Windows logo, press Alt+F10 together five times.
This will bring up the system restore menu.
Follow the on-screen prompts to restore your computer back to the factory settings
hope this helps
