How to restore my compaq presario s6000cl back to original state

\015 I don't have the original disk that came with the machine. When we evacuated from Katrina I brought the computer but forgot the disks. I really haven't had any major problems till now. I am pretty knowledgeable about most computer problems but this one is throwing me. I think there is a way of doing this by turning off the machine and when it starts you hit something but I just can't remember what it was. Please help!\015

Answers :

Does the computer start up and work at all? If so you should be able to do a system restore from the start menu. Just go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System tools. There you should see the System Restore opition. Your computer should have a date saved that you can restore back to a date that it was working.
