    It is possible you can get better speeds without resetting it but we need more information. Is it slow all the time or just doing certain things? (surfing, downloading, using programs etc) If you can download the following it'll help us take a look at what might be happening.

    Download and run Speccy http://www.piriform.com/speccy when done, click File/Publish Snapshot and it will provide you a link to copy and paste here.

    Thank you and Happy New Years.

    Boot to the Recovery partition, if there is one and it is still usable. Or borrow an appropriate installation CD from somebody if you can read the Windows Product Key on the COA sticker.

    Advise us what the complete model number is for your Compaq Presario laptop.

    Also advise us what the part/product number(P/N) on it is.

    Once we confirm its identity, we can access its support site and determine if a recovery disc kit is available for it.
