    My friend has a Compaq that was in pretty bad shape, so I agreed to restore it for him. The problem is that it doesn't want to run the restore disc. I ran AVG and and a couple other things to clean it up a little before hand, but that didn't help any. Upon booting with the restore disc in, it gets the blue screen and appears as though it will begin reformatting hte drive, but it simply checks the drive and closes. Windows then opens like normal. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :x:
