What comes up on your screen? Any boot up messages?
Check and make sure you do not have any CD-ROMS or USB or memory cards in your Presario 2100U when booting up. The system may be "stuck" because it doesn't know how do deal with those.

Full format of compaq presario 2100


Most notebooks have a separate partition on the hard drive that holds the recovery media needed to restore the unit.
You can usually run this by pressing F10 during the boot up process. You may need to press it several times in order to get it work.
If that doesn't work, then you will need to contact Compaq in order to order the recovery media kit.

Hi, I need to Format my Presario V2000 notebook but i'm not sure how to perform this action, can anyone please be able to help me ? Thanks Dan


Hi Dan,
O.k. You will need to use the recovery or operating system disc. At start up you will ned to boot from the CD, do this by either entering the boot menu and selecting the CD drive, or entering the bios/set up and changing the boot order to where the CD drive boots before the hard drive. Both of these actions are done at start up, there is an initial screen that prompts you to press a key in order to enter the boot menu or bios/set up. Once you have booted from the CD, you will follow the steps and it will guide you through the process.

Boot up with no operating system


When the system starts, hold the F10 key and go into BIOS and set CD Rom as 1st Boot device (in Boot Order). Because most Compaq's would put the BIOS in a hidden NON-DOS partition on the hard drive, you may have to get an OEM recovery disk for that model. Because there is no BIOS to go to, the machine doesn't know it has a CD, HD or Floppy to go to. A boot floppy/CD is no help. Alternative 1: With another desktop and IDE to Laptop HD connector, FDISK (make active partition and hidden partition [5mb]), Format both, copy the cabs from WinME CD to c:\windows\options. Alternative 2: Find the COMPAQ OEM CD for that model. Since there was no exact model number Click here Please indicate whether this is helpful or not.
