Problem with my computer

Hi Thanks for your question
If you have restore CD that should have came with your laptop restoring it should be quite easy.
1. Press F10 on startup and set DVD/CD drive to be the first device in Boot order. You should find this in general section of BIOS or in Boot section or similar.
2. Put your restore CD in and restart your computer When asked to press any key to boot from cd do it
3. Follow instructions on the screen and you should be able to complete your restore in 30-40 min
Good Luck

Do a system restore to a time previous to where you drive worked..

For xp .. start all - all programs - axcessories - system tools - system restore

for vista .. start - system tools - system restore

or start search,, type system restore and hit enter

scroll down until you see system restore " restore to a previous date) cliak on that..

In eighter case follow the onscreen instrustions to do the restore..

if that fails you may need to format the system with the cd's that cam with it. insert the disk and restart the system..follow all instructions. NB:: this will erase all data,, backup important files before doing this..

Partition not 100% on laptop 700 presario

From the description loo\ks like it's not a partition problem, but the Compaq CD.
Try to partition Hard Drive using Windows 98 bootable CD.
Try to install Win XP from different CD - doesn't have to be Compaq. Later you can download drivers.
