Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

Resetting the Computer (HP Pavilion dv1000)

I was told that by pressing F10 while starting my computer the whole system would go back to factory settings.
It did not turn out to be that easy, when I press F10 I'm brought in to a menu with various choices, but I don't know what to choose.
I want to clean my hard drive and get it back to how it was when I brought it back from the store. Does anybody have a simple solution to this, is the answer in the F10 menu?

Thank you

    As for CDs I got with my computer I have "HP Quickplay Application
    Restore", "Oppeationalsystem-CD Microsoft, Windows XP Home SP2",
    "Application and Driver Recovery DVD" and "Notebook Documentation".

    Which ones should I use if I want to clean or reset my computer... how
    do I do it. Is there some idiot's guide to do it, because I really
    don't want to mess up my computer.



    Thanks

Hello RogueM,

By pressing F10 at the notebook startup will lead you to the BIOS settings screen.
DV1000 notebook is hsipped with restore disks. With which you can clean your hard drive and install fresh copy of operating system.

The option for going directly to factory settings is not available on your notebook. This option works when the notebook is shipped with the recovery partiion.

You can clean the hard drive even if you have the retail version of operating disk with you.

Double click "My Compter" In the window that opens you should see your harddrive "C" if you see another harddrive listed usually "D" with HP or Compaq as the name then that is the recovery partition for your computer and that is what F10 is going to use to restore your machine.
What options are you being given? it has been a while since I did one of these.

    That picture shows the BIOS screnn, if you are getting that when you press F10 then I think you can assume that you don't have a recovery partition and you will need to restore your laptop using the recovery disks.

    You will need to put the Windows disk in the CD drive and restart the machine, then follow the on screen instructions.

    This is a link to the service manual for your machine, it's a little over complicated for what you want but if you follow the flow chart in paragraph 2.14 (no OS) it will run you through the complete reinstall procedure.

Accessing the recovery partition on your HP Pavilion laptop allows you to restore your computer to speed it up, eliminate a virus or repair your Windows operating system.
The Recovery Manager program makes it possible to restore your laptop to its settings as of a previous date or restore your computer to its original factory settings, which will erase all of your installed programs and personal data.
Using the recovery partition allows you to bypass the hassle of keeping track of recovery discs, which could be damaged in storage, rendering them useless when you need them.

Turn on or restart your HP Pavilion laptop.
Press "F11" when the "Press <F11> for recovery" message appears during the HP Pavilion boot process.
Select "Recovery Manager" from your list of recovery options and press "Enter."
The Recovery Manger program will open on your screen, and you can begin the recovery process.
Access Recovery Manager Within Windows
Click the "Start" icon or "Start" button in the lower left corner of your Windows home screen.
Click "All Programs" and then "Recovery Manager."
Click "Recovery Manager" again to open the Recovery Manager program on your HP Pavilion laptop.

Pavilion dv1000 PC Notebook: i want to restore laptop to factory...


Hi,

I guess that you no if a recovery is done on the computer there will be a data loss you will have only those things that came with the computer.Ther are two ways to run a recovery one is from the disk and the other one is from the partition.First let me tell you how to run the recovery fromt the partition .

Turn the computer off and then disconnect any external devices connected to the computer like printer,scanner,usb devices etc.Then when you turn the computer on or leets say as soon as you press the power button to turn the computer on start tapping the f11 key repeatedly without stopping until you get a screen that says system recovery in xp and recovery manager in vista ,then click on next until you get a screen that has advance option,once you are there click on it and then select system recovery and click on next.Recovery will start automatically and then the computer restarts then you need to do the basic setup for the computer .Will take you to the dsktop after that.

If this does not work then you need to get the recover cd by either calling up HP or there is a company called COMPUTER SURGEONS and the phone number is 1800-486-6127.

all the best.....

Format/restore computer to factory settings


Press F11 at system startup to get to the NEC recovery menu. From there, you can restore your factory settings. However, a "destructive" recovery will wipe the hard drive, including your personal files. Best to back those up first before performing the recovery.

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)
