I have an old Compaq Presario 1500 laptop, which is now running so slowly it is hardly worth switching on. I would like to use the Compaq supplied Recovery discs I have to take the machine back to its factory settings, but so far have been unable to find out how to utilise them. I have tried just about every 'F' key looking for how to start the discs, but nothing. I have looked to try them from within 'Safe' mode. I have tried to contact Compaq/HP, but they are only interested in within warranty questions. Can anyone help please.

Have you gone into the BIOS and set CDROM as default for startup.

As above with booting with CD in the drive
