Something went wrong with the recovery process. The easiest way to go about this is to just do the installation again.

    Can I do a factory restore on my laptop without the CD?


    Hi annick_s,

    You can do a factory restore without using your CD as long as you haven't deleted the Recovery partition. Follow the steps below to do a factory restore;

    1) Turn on the computer.
    2) When the initial blue HP screen appears, press the F10> key repeatedly until a recovery menu appears.
    3) When the Recovery screen appears, click Next, and then click Yes to perform a normal, non-destructive recovery. To perform a destructive recovery, click Advanced, and then click Yes.

    CAUTION: A destructive recovery will format the hard drive. This will delete all the information on the hard drive and reinstall Windows XP and the original software that came with the computer.

    4) After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup.

    If this information was helpful, please rate it.

    Thank you for using fixya,

    Need a reboot disk for compaq presario 1278 series cm2070 model 1456VQLIN does not have an OS


    Most Compaq's come with what is known as "reimaging" or the OS already installed on a partitioned part of your harddrive (which is locked) unless you go in and have your computer do a System Recovery to factory settings...
    Know that if this is your only option, then you will loose everything you have on your computer up until you got the error message...

    Ok, first things first..
    What were you doing before you got this error?
    Are you able to boot to your start up screen and get to System Restore? If not and all else is lost, then follow the following instructions

    1. Restart the computer "Press key, it's up above your 0 for recovery" message is displayed
    on the screen. Then select Recovery Manager. Then your Recovery Manager will come up

    2. Choose Advanced Options.
    3. Choose System recovery, and then click Next. It will instruct you to reset your computer to Factory Settings...all you need to do is follow the Recovery Manager Wizard options and click next and next and so on... let me know if this works....

    Compaq presario system recovery


    Hi,

    When the initial blue HP screen appears, press the F10 key repeatedly until a recovery menu appears. The progress indicator that first appears does not indicate that a recovery is taking place. The progress indicator represents the time before the recovery process is started.

    When the Recovery screen appears, click Next, and then click Yes to perform a normal, non-destructive recovery.

    To perform a destructive recovery, click Advanced, and then click Yes.



    CAUTION: A destructive recovery will format the hard drive. This will delete all the information on the hard drive and reinstall Windows XP and the original software that came with the computer.

    After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup.


    NOTE: It may take a long time to complete Windows setup. This time varies and may take over an hour, depending on the amount of files that were stored in the user account folders (Like My Documents and the Desktop.

    Note:Dont foregt to backup your important files/documents.
    Hope this helps !
    Thanks..

    How can i reboot ma laptop itz compaq presario v6000 i want to clean all ma stuff hey  i followed what u said to do but when i pressed (f11) it brung me to a baby blue blank screen before i have...


    You should start tapping the F11 key right after you turn the laptop on. It should go into the recovery mode, and you can select either a windows recovery (saving your data) or a full destructive recovery. If you feel you have picked up a virus, the destructive recovery is best, as this will put the laptop back to like new, out of the box condition.

    How do i do a destructive recovery??


    Insert the recovery disc, included with your laptop when you unpacked it, reboot the laptop and follow the instruction.

    If your laptop came with a recovery partition, restart it and hit F8 function key while it is booting up. This should bring up a menu, select the recovery option.
