Compaq Presario Recovery needed??

\015 Hi,\302\240\015\012Our main computer needs a completly Wiping clean. It come with Recovery disks, but this was so long ago. We have misplaced them and really need to know where I can get my hands on some "free" recovery software\015\012I have tried to look everywhere, but no joy. Do you have any suggestions??\015

Answers :

If the compaq has not had the hard-drive altered, there is a restore partition. Normally you require recovery disks to start this process, but you can turn the computer on, and press F11 repeatedly to access the partition. I'm not sure what will happen without the recovery disks, but it's worth a try.
\015\012I am assuming the Compaq/HP system restore utility in Windows is long gone?
