    What do you mean "deleted the option"? You do it this way.
    Edit:

    I think you should be pressing ctrl+F11.

    For those of you with Compaq Presario V6000 that have no recovery or reinstallation disks. If you have not altered the original hard disk drive then you should have a system partition usually labeled “D:\”.
    During Bootup screen hit the F11 key and follow instructions. This will reinstall your operating system (usually Windows XP Home edition w/ Service Pack 2) and reinstall all of the original drivers and software that came with your PC from the factory.

    Well I may have deleted the d drive. When I pressed f11 it gave an option to delete the recovery portion or whatever it says. That's what I deleted then tried to do the f11 process again and it doesn't work anymore.

    I think you have deleted it, do you have recovery discs? Either supplied with the machine when you bought it or ones you made yourself when it was new?
