Compaq's are good laptops

I just fired up a CQ61

If you keep tapping the F11 key during the power-up, it will bring up the Factory Recovery Manager.

See if you can get to that & try the second option on the left hand section

Okay, another problem. When trying to reset the system password, I went into the utility by hitting f10-first time when I tried unsuccessfully to get around the password. Well not that I'm around the password and restored to factory defaults, I'm still getting the blue box asking me for the password to get on the laptop. Any idea how to make that go away?
