If you are using a Window vista there is an option to do that, on the maintenance option>back up and restore - you can restore it to the previous installment.

For windows XP, try to use system restore, restore it to the most previous date

Was givin a used unit and want to reset it to factory default


To reset BIOS to factory default settings, press "F10" during the POST section and then press "F5" to reinstall factory BIOS settings, Save the new settings and reboot.
To recover to a clean install of the Operating System you will need a set of Recovery Disks. If you do not have them, and the machine will load Windows successfully then you should be able to create them from the "HP Backup & Recovery Manager" although whether this will return to factory default or simply create disks for recovery to its current state I am not sure. Alternatively I understand you can get Recovery Disks from HP, although whether still available for this model - I don't know. Hope this helps.
