HP/compaq supply a recovery partition which can be accessed by repeatedly pressing F10 at startup. so providing the idiot didnt totally format your drive you should be able to restore your machine to the day you bought it.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

If the recovery partition is missing or messed up, contact support from the manufacturer and they will sell you at a reasonable price a set of recovery disks to return your system to it's new condition. If you have any files remaining, back them up before trying a factory restore or you will loose them.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
