    Sorry, the system restore will make changes in the program installed/remove during the period. No file and data change been done during system restore.


    Could you please clarify me what the error you have got.


    Have you saved the files on desktop? Which operating system running on your PC?


    Let me know in bit more detail so I can assist you further.


    Regards

It assume to be the case where you have done Recover for your Operating system with No backup files.
Restoration of the lost file is not possible here.

F11 takes you to the BIOS/CMOS settup, and a system restore cannot be accomplished there. i suspect you went into the recovery console (notice i said recovery, not restore). in recovery, you have two options, non destructive recovery whitch only reinstalls the factory operating system and keeps your files. it does however changes the location of your files and you have to explore around to find them. a destructive recovery completely rewrites the non-partitioned segment of the hard drive which erases all files.........but............if you have done a backup which stores the files in the partitioned area of the hard drive, you can restore that backup with the back-up and restore utility.

How to reset my computer HP Pavilion back to factory settings(?)


As long as you havn't deleted the 'hidden partition oir 'formatted your hard disk. then you will be able to 'reset to factory'

The method used to restore software and drivers depends on the operating system that was originally installed on your notebook PC.

There are several pages at HP for your machine. I think this one may be what you want.
You use the F11 key to start recoverry

Diskboot failure insert system disk


What was the problem in the first place? Why are you trying to restore the computer?

Or reading wrong; do you mean the computer will not start? Boot?

Primer:
Disk Boot. -> The bootstrap files on the harddrive.
Bootstrap <- Make it easier to understand?

The basic Windows files.

Can't access restoration on the harddrive with F11? Quite common.
I mean, how crazy is that? Let's put the restoration files, (Basic Windows files), on the harddrive? So if the harddrive goes bad?????

Suggest you use the Restoration Disk.

{Pre-built computer manufacturers were packing the Restoration Disk/s with the computer. As time went by the manufacturers saw the users were not using the disk/s, or loosing them.

Didn't want to use, because of fearing computer damage if they error, or didn't even want to try.

Okay. Put the restoration files on the harddrive, then.
Have the new owner make a BACKUP, when the owner turns the computer on for the first time.
Save a few cents without providing the disk for each computer.
(Take a few cents times 50,000 computers, or more)

Hardly anyone makes a backup disk, when the computer is turned on for the first time. If the harddrive goes bad you cannot access the restoration files.

Computer manufacturers have gone back to packing the restoration disk, with the computer }

What?
Don't have the Restoration Disk? (I won't say anything about not making a backup disk. Could be failure time with it, also)

Go to the back of the computer tower, or up on the side. Write down the Serial Number. It's in the white Service Tag. S/N = Serial Number
(NO, do not post it on the internet. Only to an authorized HP representative)

Call HP Support.
In the USA call 1-800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The Restoration Disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship. $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

For other countries use HP Worldwide Support,

http://welcome.hp.com/country/w1/en/support.html

Do I think the Restoration Disk will repair the problem?
Dunno. Don't know what the original problem was. You haven't stated it yet.

no fee from this site
no factory reset either
uninstall the operation system and then reinstall it from the disc or download
probably the best is to reformat the hard drive then reinstall the os
make sure that all files and folders are backed up onto an external hard drive first

If you purchased it new, you can probably get a recovery disk from HP.  HP usually puts a recovery partition on one part of the disk, but if your utility program wiped that out, then you will need help from HP directly.
You can try HP's website by starting here: http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_lang=en&h_cc=us&cc=us&h_page=hpcom&lang=en&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_pagetype=s-001&h_query=pavilion+dv6000&submit=Go+%BB

The following discusses ordering a recovery disk: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00810334&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=1842155&rule=21883&lang=en

If the recovery parition is still intact, you might be able to recover based on this link: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&rule=21883&product=1842155&docname=c00809678#RecoverOS

Restore the PC to its original condition with the HP Recovery Manager if Windows Vista is not accessible If the PC cannot launch into Windows, it may still be possible to use the HP Recovery Manager on the hard drive to restore the computer to its original operating condition by first pressing the Power button to start the PC, and then pressing the F11 key to start the HP Recovery Manager. NOTE: Depending on the BIOS version, your computer may display multiple prompts during startup including F11 to start System Recovery. Pressing the F11 key on a computer with an HP factory image will start System Recovery even if the prompt is not displayed.
  • If the HP Recovery Manager can access the hard drive, a prompt is displayed to backup the user files before beginning the recovery. Follow any on-screen instructions.
  • If the HP Recovery Manager cannot access the hard drive to fix any system errors, use the set of recovery discs to recover the hard drive to its original condition.

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 :)
