hi im trying to reset a windows 7 compaq presario cq61 laptop to factory settings. i get to the recovery manager but i displays a message which says the laptop needs to be plugged into an ac power outlet even no it is plugged in. the charger i have been given is a replacement charger so would this be the problem and if it is, is there anything i can do to get around this message?

Try removing the battery and leave it plugged into mains.

Is it just a warning message are you given an option to continue?

Not with that one - until the laptop recognises a valid charger present you can't continue. My suggestion was to test if the battery was removed it might work - that model frequently has a problem with the battery recognition particularly with regard to charging.
