HOw do i reset my computer to where its practiclly new?


Restoring an HP computer to factory settings requires that you do a system recovery.
There are two types of recovery for HP computers: destructive and non-destructive.

Destructive recovery will reformat your hard drive, destroying all data and reinstalling the operating system and additional software according to the factory configuration.

Non-destructive, or "system," recovery will repair your Windows installation, replacing any damaged or missing system files and restoring the registry to the factory setting.

Non-destructive recovery is the best option if you are unable to back up your user data before running system recovery.Restoring with CDs


Back up all crucial user files if you are able to do so.
If your computer will not burn CDs, use flash drives of 4GB or higher to store your data.

Alternatively, you can use your network to transfer files.
You can then back up your data to CDs at your leisure.

Detach peripheral devices such as removable media drives, USB drives and your printer before recovering.

Also remove any additional hard drives by disconnecting the cable from the back of the computer.
Leave your monitor, mouse and keyboard attached to the computer.

Shut down your computer.
Place the first recovery CD in the CD drive.

If your recovery files are written on a partition, you may be able to select system recovery from the splash screen and your computer starts.
Select the recovery option you would like to use.
To perform a destructive recovery, click the "Advanced" menu option.

Select "Destructive Recovery" and click "Next."
To perform a non-destructive, or system, recovery, click "Next" from the opening screen.
Watch the computer while it is recovering to the factory settings.
Watch for any errors, as the computer will wait indefinitely for a response from you, slowing down recovery time.

Also, you may need to insert additional recovery CDs as the recovery program requests them. Restoring With Recovery Manager

Click the Windows "Start" menu, type "Recovery" in the Search field and press "Enter."
Click "Advanced Options," choose "System Recovery" and select "Next."
If you are prompted to use Microsoft's recovery program, select "No."
Choose the option to back up your files, if you haven't done it already.
Once that is complete, choose "Next" to begin reformatting the drive and returning the system to factory settings. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-Systems-and/How-do-I-RESTORE-my-system-to-the-original-factory-settings/td-p/50113

Upon turning on my desktop, it froze on the blue "hp" screen with the f10, escape, etc. Options. I noticed the "num lock" light was not lit on my keyboard so I purchased another one to...


Your computer is not booting, and until it does so, the "num lock" light light will not come on.
Booting requires BIOS to run.

BIOS stands for Built In Operating System and it must successfully load and run before it can initialize the keyboard and recognize the hard drive where your windows program is stored.

A number of things can cause this, including something plugged into the computer that is bad, so first, turn off and unplug the computer from the wall outlet, then label and unplug everything from the back of the computer except the monitor and keyboard.

Plug it in and turn it on again. If it loads windows, plug in the items you unplugged, such as printer, scanner, mouse, and so forth, one at at time, and ensure all work properly.

If it does not boot, Unplug the computer from the wall, open the computer case, and ensure all the various plugs and boards are securely plugged into their sockets. Gently wiggle things to see if anything is loose or not locked down properly. Avoid static damage by placing one hand on the metal case while wiggling with the other hand. Try to only touch the edges of the various boards.

If it still does not load windows, you can try to reset BIOS. The HP website lists the following steps to do this. If you have another computer, this is the page to visit: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07110&tmp_track_link=ot_recdoc/c00007682/en_us/bph07110/loc:1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&os=228&tool=softwareCategory&query=a121-n&product=1118241#N281

You can enter BIOS by entering F10 at the first screen. If it does not work when your computer if frozen, then repeatedly press F10 as the computer is powering up and stop when it enters the bios setup program.

Once you are in the setup program:
1.Press the F5 function key.
2. Select Yes or OK using the arrow keys .
3.Press the Enter key.
4. Press the F10 function key.
5.Select Yes or OK to save the defaults.
6.Press the Enter key again if necessary.
The computer will reboot. If it still does not work properly, you need to take it to a competent repair person.

How do I find the functions for F1 -F12 buttons on my HP keyboard


Those functions are not set by the operating system or the keyboard, they are set by individual software programs and could have a different function for each program. Typically F1 is help and F5 is refresh.

Monitor won't stay on. Error message comes up that says "no input signal", then monitor goes out.


Problem with the monitor, monitor cable, or video output. For monitor, if you have more than one input, make sure it's set to the correct one. Try a different cable. Try a different monitor. Check your video card settings--if you see the BIOS bootup screen while it's coming up then the Windows splash screen, then monitor blanks out, it's a Windows display setting. Boot into safe mode, then change settings--
  • Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected (the top option)
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.

HP MEDIA CENTER 864N Desktop PC&p RECOVERY CD


NOTE: Most HP and Compaq desktop PCs that ship with Windows Vista and XP do not come with recovery discs. Instead, they use a hidden space (partition) on the hard drive to store the recovery information. Using a hidden partition provides a convenient, more stable recovery solution.
Step 1: Create a set of recovery discs or a recovery DVD
To create the recovery disc set, Click Start , All Programs , PC Help & Tools (or similar), open the HP or Compaq Recovery CD-DVD Creation software, and follow the on-screen directions.
If you cannot create recovery discs or your discs have become damaged, continue to the next step.
Step 2: Order recovery CDs on the Web
If you are not able to create a set of recovery discs, you may be able to order a set of replacement discs from HP. HP maintains a stock of replacement recovery discs for several years after the product has been released. However, because of licensing restrictions, HP is only able to provide these recovery discs for a limited time. If your computer is several years past its warranty period, HP may not be able to supply replacement discs for your computer. If this is the case, you can install a new operating system that meets the minimum system requirements of your computer, or, alternatively, upgrade your computer hardware.
To find out if HP has recovery discs that you can order and to order them from HP, use the following steps:
NOTE: The steps in this section apply to United States and Canada. For Europe, Middle East, and Africa please refer to the HP support document Europe, Middle East, and Africa - Statement on the Availability of the Recovery Software on CD . For other countries/regions, contact your local HP support center for information about obtaining recovery CDs.
Go to the Software & Driver Downloads page .
Enter the product number or model name for your computer into the field provided.
Figure 1: Product name/number field

Click the operating system link (the version of Windows that came with your computer).
Figure 2: Example of operating system link
f96d267.gif
Find the Recovery Disc ordering section and click the link to start the ordering process.
NOTE: Before trying to order, make sure that you have read the important "Read this..." information listed in this Recover Disc ordering section.
Note: - If the link to order a recovery disc set is not available, there may not be any more sets available for purchase. HP cannot create recovery discs that contain a version of Windows that has been obsoleted by Microsoft, such as Windows 95, 98, and Me. Some recovery disc sets may have run out of stock and may not be available to order.
Figure 3: Recovery disc ordering links
7640107.gif
Follow the directions from the "Read this...” article and from the ordering pages to complete the ordering process.
NOTE: The ordering pages use a secure connection to protect your privacy.
If you cannot create a recovery disc set and you cannot order a recovery disc set from HP, go to the next step.
Step 3: Contact Support
If you have tried the steps 1 and 2 and could not create or obtain a recovery disc set, contact HP Customer Care . HP Customer Care may be able to send out new discs or replace defective versions depending on your situation and availability.
