how to rest an hp elitebook to factory settings?


Hello, I can give you instructions to reset your computer to factory settings. Please write down all passwords and IDs, save any pictures or word documents and anything else that you feel is important prior to the reset. Print out these instructions. Read the instructions carefully prior to carrying this out due to the computer booting up quickly you may miss a step. I recommend you do a dry run prior to completing the function.

NOTE: Restoring defaults will not change the hard drive mode.
To return all settings in Computer Setup to the values that were set at the factory, follow these steps:
1.Turn on or restart the computer, and then press ESC button when the message "Press the ESC key for Startup Menu" is displayed at the bottom of the screen.
2.Press F10 (this should be your computer setup)
3.Use a pointing device or the arrow keys to select File > Restore Defaults.
4.Follow the on-screen instructions.
5.To save your changes and exit, click the Save icon in the lower-left corner of the screen, and then follow the on-screen instructions.
- or -
Use the arrow keys to select File > Save Changes and Exit, and then press enter.
Your changes go into effect when the computer restarts.
NOTE:
Your password settings and security settings are not changed when you restore the factory
settings.
Since I don't know exactly what model you have these are general directions.
Good luck
