Do you have a restore disk? You will need that to restore your pc to factory settings. Or, if your pc is a newer model, there might be a restore option. Have your checked your pc's manual?

Dvd drive in HP Compaq 7550 will no longer read dvds.


Try the drive in another computer or try another drive in yours.  If the drive doesn't work in another computer, the drive is bad.  If it does, then there is a conflict in your computer.

Resetting


By factory settings, I am assuming you are reffering to the Operating System, or Windows XP.  If this is not a correct assumption, please let me know.
Unfortunately, there is no way to reset the PC to a factory default configuration with out the discs provided by the manufacturer.  Those discs not only contain the operating system install files, but also any drivers that are used that are specific to models made by that manufacturer.
Newer PCs skip the need of discs by creating a "Recovery Partition" on your hardrive.  Think of this as a snapshot taken of your PC just as it leaves the manufacturer.  It is possibly to boot to this partition, erase you current configuration, and restore this "factory default" configuration.  Unfortunately, this option is not available on your specific PC model.
It is possible to re-install the Windows operating system by using any type of Windows install media (CD,DVD,etc), but you will also have to download any special drivers (video card, sounds card, printer) from the manufacturer's web site.

Compaqs usualy come with "Restore" cd's or DVD. If you have one it will restore your computer to its factory settings. Be sure to backup andy data you may want to keep, such as emails, documents, favorites/bookmarks and such.

First of all,,,what type of factory settings?some settings are in the Bios which you access as soon as you turn the computer on by hitting a "F?" key,,it will tell you which key to hit when the compaq splash screen appears..and then reset to default.Other settings are in the control panel under administrative options then click on services but you have to set those manually
