This is a fairly new laptop, it should have come with either a recovery disk or a recovery partition on the HDD. You should be able to still purchase the recovery media from HP. Have you contacted them?

Recovery partition (including possibility to recover system, applications and drivers separately); Optional re-allocation of recovery partition; Recovery CD/DVD creation tool; Symantec™ Norton Internet Security™ 2008 (60 days live update); Notebook Help & Support


This is a feature of the notebook from the HP support site.

Recovery disc


Hello, you would need to contact the manufacturer of your computer. They can either send you the recovery disc or provide you with other options.

Hard disk error no recovery disc


@lizegim

HP laptops have a built-in recovery mode on the system wherein you don't need to use a disc to restore it to factory default. The hotkey for the recovery is the F10 key. After you press the power button, you need to simultaneously press the F10 key to start system recovery. If this one won't work and gave you like an "I/O Error" or "Error 0x000000E" or something similar then that means that the HDD is already defective and needs replacement and you need to order the recovery discs from HP at 1-800-474-6836. If you're still under warranty, they'll replace the HDD and give the Recovery Discs to you for free.

Good luck.

I wanna know how to reset my laptop back to factory settings Gateway windows 7 model# NEW90 NV59C


usually if you dont get a recovery disc with your laptop you would then use those discs to reload the system from scratch. the other is that you would have to create recovery discs as soon as you started using the laptop. if the sales person did not make you aware of it then he is a very bad sales person. the other solution would be to go to the web-site of the manufacturer of the laptop and under the support section or drivers and downloads you will find drivers and recovery disc image or iso or a self extracting file which you will then have to copy to disc then use the created disc to reload the system

How to restore toshiba labtop with no disc


Hello

Well, if you have no Installation disc, or no cd/dvd rom in this specific model, you should have a recovery partition.

To access the Toshiba recovery partition, power off the laptop. Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the zero key repeatedly. Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.

Note that this erases all data, and reloads all factory default software. Be sure to back up all your important personal data beforehand!

If this procedure doesn't work, you don't have a recovery partition set up, hence, you will need the installation disc.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
Andrea

How do i reset laptop back to manufacture settings. I was not goiven the cds for the laptop when i got it for chrsitmas. I ask the person who got it for me and they told me that cds did not even come with...


Depending on the manufacturer and model, there may be a recovery partition on your computer's hard drive. When you turn the computer on, watch for any message that pops up, like "Press F11 for recovery" or something similar. Look at the programs listed on the Windows Start menu as well. Often the manufacturer includes a program to start recovery from the partition.

If the computer doesn't have a recovery partition and didn't come with software on CD, you may be out of luck. Most systems like this include a utility that lets you make your own recovery disc set when you get the computer. But you need to make those discs before you start using the system and making major changes. Otherwise you won't have a good factory image to go back to.

Check the manufacturer's website for support information. Some companies offer recovery sets for sale. If Windows is running, you can also try using the System Restore function to roll your computer back to some earlier configuration.

If all else fails, you can do a full installation of Windows yourself if you can borrow a copy of whichever version came on the computer. You'll find the information on the Windows key sticker normally on the bottom of the computer. If you go with this method, you'll need to install hardware drivers (which can be downloaded from the manufacturer's support page for your model) and then activate Windows using the product key on the sticker.

You will also need to install your own versions of software that may have come preloaded (antivirus programs, disc burner software, etc.). This is often a good thing, though. Many computers come preloaded with a bunch of "bloatware" that just slows things down. Installing Windows yourself lets you put on only what you really need, and there is lots of good free, open-source software out there for almost any application.

Hope this helps you out a little. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

Recovery help needed for packard bell laptop


So you are using two different XP discs with two different activation codes? That may cause problems. Anyway you are probably already formated with NTFS. So it sounds like you are trying to re-install XP? Go in set-up and choose the CD/DVD ROM drive as the first boot device then start up with the XP disc in the drive. Use the disc for the original XP that was on the computer. This may get you to a point where you can re-install.

Need to make recovery disc.


I took a shot in the dark and looked up how to make a recovery disc for a Pavilion 9900, since I can't find the Pavilion type you listed in the title of this thread.. The instructions are pretty simple:

"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".

Here's the link to the complete document at HP.com:
