I have a Compaq Presario 5WV251 which originally had Windows ME on it. All the original software, drivers, OS, etc. are on a partition labelled D. What I want to do is restore the computer to its original factory state, but I can't seem to figure out how. I've looked through each file in the D partition to see if any of them is an executable file that would let me do this either from Windows or DOS but nothing seems to work. I've also tried booting up whilst pressing F10 but that doesn't lead me anywhere useful either.
AndySD's site above is very handy for all the drivers etc. but the recovery CD costs about £26. I'm wondering if there's any way I can simply use the files in my D partition as they are without using a recovery CD.
