This means that the data inside the D drive is gone. If you had deleted the D drive data or had gotten rid of this partition then your outta luck in trying to restore your system back to factory settings (getting windows reloaded).

All is not lost if you are willing to pay HP/Compaq for their restore CD's this will get your laptop and running again. I paid a copy of these CD's 3yrs ago and cost me $45CDN to get them.

How do i do a restore to factory default to a compaq presario with no cds?


Guardian, If you want to remove all SW that you installed and all the data that you have on the computer, then the easiest way is to go to Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Restore. Restore your PC/laptop to the earliest date that you can. The restorable date would be in bold numerals. Go backwards as far as you can and select the oldest bold date. The laptop would take a reboot after sometime. Do not panic. Just follow the instructions. Should you want the data for you, then back it up before restoring.Backup to a CD or a DVD.

Trying to restore back to factory what can i


When you purchased the computer, you should have received a set of "System Restore" CD-ROMs. Use them.

If you have lost them, telephone HP/COMPAQ, and order a replacement set of "System Restore" CD-ROMs. The cost could be $20 for the set, and $20 for courier-shipping. When the disks arrive, use them.

P.S. Backup all your music/files/bookmarks/contacts before doing the "factory" reset.
