I assume by saying there is already a password on the laptop, you're referring to a windows password, when the computer boots start tapping f8, you will be presented with a boot menu including safe mode, start windows normally etc... there should be an option for 'repair your computer' arrow down and hit enter. once windows recovery console loads click next a couple times and then you'll see another menu. the new menu should have a bunch of repair options one of which is restore to factory default. click that and follow the prompts. once it's done you'll have to go in and remove all the bloatware installed by the store.

SOURCE: Repair manual for HP Pavilion dv6 1245 dx

Go to hp.com. Click on support and drivers tab. Select "See Support & Troubleshooting Information." Enter your laptop model number. dv6-1245dx. Click on "GO". See: "What Type Of Support Do You Need?" Choose MANUALS. Scroll down the page and select "HP PAVILION DV6 ENTERTAINMENT PC - MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE GUIDE". Download that PDF format. It is relatively easy to get to the ribbon cable that connects the touchpad to the motherboard. It is connected via a ZIF connector. I had a dv1331se and the touchpad stopped working. I just reseated the cable in the connector and all was well. Hope your solution is as easy as mine was. You'll have to remove the trimplate just in front of the keyboard. Be careful with the connectors there. The manual is well laid out and the diagrams easy to follow. Good luck. HP Pavilion dv6 Entertainment PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

Factory restore HP Pavilion Dv2910us


when doing a boot menu you need to either constantly bash the key in or hold it in (depends on the bios some are very fiddly) then once your through that you need to do a "factory reset" by re-installing your system (this requires a disk for your software) you then need to delete the c// drive partition including your system memory (system memory applies to windows vista upwards) then install it to the unpartitioned hard drive. Theres no such button for a factory reset. If you need more information or need to be talked through it send me a message on here.

How can i reset my hp pavilion laptop?


The easiest way to clean the laptop up is to reinstall windows and reformat the hard drive. Was there a set of recovery disks/CDs with this laptop? If so you can do a system recovery and get it to factory specs. If no disks are available you may be able to create them yourself. information on this procedure should be on the HP web site where you may be able to purchase a set of disks/CDs.
Good luck, I will check back to see how your doing.

I have HP Pavilion DV6 model no WW146AV.How to activate bluetooth in this model


If your particular model of HP has the blue tooth installed from the factory, turning on the wireless switch on the front left edge of the laptop enables the blue tooth, as well as the wireless LAN. A blue tooth icon should appear in your task bar near the clock when blue tooth is turned on. ELSE
You have to go into start, then all programs, then look for the blue tooth connection setting. Hope this helps.
Go into start, then all programs, then look for accessories, the find blue tooth wizard. You can switch it on via that.


NOTE : BE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A BLUE TOOTH IN YOUR MODEL BECAUSE SOME OF THE MODELS DON'T HAVE IT.

Hello, I just bought a HP Pavilion P6000 series. It was a display model. After getting home I noticed I cant log into the main hard drive with admin rights with out a password. The store set a passcode...


Hi, I would contact the store and ask them what they set their password to. Without a restore or windows disk you won't be able to reset it to factory condition or reformat and reinstall windows. They should be able to give you the password and from there you can get in and change the password etc.
Thank you,
Lee

The best thing you could do is contact HP customer care and oder a restoration disk in english.
They will charge you about $22.00 usd.
or you can download a new BIOS and reload drivers and operating system yourself.
If you would like to try, you can go to the HP website and type in your model and load your sound drivers their.
Type in HP.com, then go to support and downloads, fallow the instructions and pic your operating system.
Next, pic your sound drivers and load them.
Hope this has helped you.
