I have a compaq desktop that does not do anything when I hit F11 to do a system restore. Is there a workaround to that?

Depends on the cause.
If the system had the recovery partition erased, you're not going to be able to boot to it at all.
If the MBR was just messed up or changed, you might be able to use Boot Magic to boot to the partition, or you might be able to go into windows and start the restore process that way.
