Hello,

Since SR1519 was listed as the model in your request wasn't found exactly. Here is the instructions for a close model. There may be minor differences in the instructions but the instructions below are mostly generic for most all Compaq's.

At the top of the page at this link, you will see 3 options for instructions on recovering your PC to factory state, just choose the one that best fits your situation.

Please remember to rate this solution.

Thanks

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.

Clean and restore my computer


Your compaq should have come with a factory CD that will allow you to restore the system.

Insert the cd and restart the computer. It should boot from the cd and ask you if you would to repair the installation (or something similar).

Without the HP CD you can pretty much hang it up with a copy of Windows.

Restore to factory settings on compaq presario 2100


Do you have the restore disk that came with the pc? Just remember that restoring the pc to factory settings, will wipe out your hard drive as if it were 'new.' Try to save whatever you can before you perform the restore.
