I have a HP Compaq nc600.I need to reformat the laptop.But I don't have any of the software because I bought the laptop off of Ebay a few months ago.Is there anywhere I can download the software to reformat it myself.?I feel that this is simple,so I don't want to take it to the shop when I can do it myself.Thanks!

Use the recovery partition if it has one.

My wife's compaq has a recovery partition on the hard drive, to access it you need to press f11 when it first boots up. I haven't tried it as her computer is new. also you might be able to get recovery disc from hp at hp.com.

What software are you referring to? If the eBay seller included applications with the computer, formatting it will wipe those out, and without the installation disks, you can't get them back. HP would only provide the original system recovery disks which probably won't include any software the seller had installed when you bought it.

The question is why on earth do you want to reformat the PC ?
If it is filled with viruses then free antivirus programs are available, if you want to get rid of personal information then create a new user profile.
If it gets many popups and ads then run an antimalware free program.
