You can go to your DOS, or go to run, type cmd. and go where it says C: if you are not there already and type C:/format or C:/format.exe and that should work or you could also insert an operating system disk and boot from disk and reformat the drive that way.

Hope this helps.

Is a compaq presario 5000/8000 quick restore cd compatible with a compaq presario 2175us laptop?

I guess not. Drivers for compaq presario 5000/8000, are not the same as those for a compaq presario 2175us laptop. Now, actually that "notebook" looks to me rather outdated. You won't lose anything by trying. Worst case, format hard drive and install Windows XP SP3. Try to search internet for missing drivers.

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.
