The Compaq TC1100, a now-discontinued tablet PC designed for Microsoft Windows XP, addressed many of the problems in the previous TC1000 model. It features a Pentium M chip and up to 2 GB of memory. If you need to reformat its installation of Windows XP, do so from a repair partition situated on the hard drive.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click "Start"-->"Shut Down"-->"Restart" on your tablet PC.

  2. 2

    Click "F12" as your computer is starting up, before you reach the Windows load screen.

  3. 3

    Select "Recovery Partition" on the Boot menu using the arrow keys, and click "Enter."

  4. 4

    Press "F8" to accept the license agreement, then select "Factory Restore" from the list using the arrow keys.

  5. 5

    Press "Enter" to begin the factory restore. Highlight "Yes" and press "Enter" to confirm you accept full loss of personal data on the hard drive.
