Having problems with your Compaq PC Desktops ?
I want to restore my compaq armada 1700 laptop back to factory settings - how do i do this
You need the recovery cd that shipped with your laptop if you do not have this cd and there is no recovery partition on the hdd you can contact the manufacturer (HP) and they will ship you one for around $15.00 here is the link to hp's support site follow the links to contact us and call thier customer support.
There is no simple "factory restore" option on older PCs, you will need the operating CD or disks and the relevant drivers. It is unlikely you will be able to get any of the original compaq software.
