I think F10 is the function key that will take you to the repair\restore
function so it is on your computer. Dave

I did however buy myself this compaq presario 6000 with xp on it. I like it,
its powerful,etc, but I miss taking that cover off and fiddling with parts
and trying things out on it. I haven't installed much as far as shareware
and things, for since i didnt get a xp cd , im scared to do much to it. 

  Hey Barb 
     You might want to check the Compaq site to see if, the cd that you did
not get with you new computer is on a hidden partition on your hard drive. I
know that HP computers are doing that now, maybe Compaq is too. If you goof
up your computer then it recovers itself from the hidden partition. It is a
neat idea, (because people loose their recovery disks) however if your hard
drive crashes the idea is not good. If your XP is on that hidden partition
then you can burn your own CD.
