The majority of these PCs have a recovery partition on the internal hard drive, here is the instructions for using it.
Recovering information using Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)
Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) can perform a recovery from either an optional external hard
drive or from recovery discs.
CAUTION: Using Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) will completely erase hard drive contents
and reformat the hard drive. All files you have created and any software installed on the computer will
be permanently removed. When reformatting is complete, the recovery process will restore the operating
system, as well as the drivers, software, and utilities from the backup used for recovery.
To initiate recovery using WinRE, follow these steps:
NOTE: This process will take several minutes.
1. If possible, back up all personal files.
2. Restart the computer, and then press f8 before the Windows operating system loads.
3. Select Repair your computer.
NOTE: The "Repair your computer" option is displayed only if the WinRE partition is intact. If the
option is not displayed, refer to “Recovering information using a Windows Vista operating system
DVD (purchased separately).”
4. Follow the on-screen instructions.
5. Click Next.
6. Select your user name, type your password (if applicable), and then click OK.
7. If you are using recovery discs, insert the last disc of the recovery disc backup set.
NOTE: Inserting the last disc of the backup set confirms the presence of a valid backup. If you
insert any other disc, the backup will not be recognized.
– or –
If you are using an optional external hard drive, connect it to the computer.
8. Click Windows Complete PC Restore.
9. Follow the on-screen instructions.

this is getting long , so ill will post more steps in comment.....

    otherwise the LAST way to recover is to buy a windows xp or vista disk and install, then go to the HP wecsite and download and install the drivers for your hardware, but try these two steps initially as they will save you some time and money if the origianl software is on the recovery partition of your internal harddrive.



    Recovering information using Recovery Manager

    If other methods do not work, you can recover your hard drive (in its factory state) as a last resort:

    CAUTION:
    Using Recovery Manager will completely erase hard drive contents and reformat the hard

    drive. All files you have created and any software installed on the computer will be permanently removed.

    Recovery Manager reinstalls the operating system and HP programs and drivers that were installed at

    the factory. Software not installed at the factory must be reinstalled.

    1.
    If possible, back up all personal files.

    2.
    Restart the computer, and then press f8 before the Windows operating system loads.

    3.
    Select Repair your computer.

    NOTE:
    The "Repair your computer" option is displayed only if the WinRE partition is intact. If the

    option is not displayed, refer to “Recovering information using a Windows Vista operating system

    DVD (purchased separately).”

    4.
    Follow the on-screen instructions.

    5.
    Click Next.

    6.
    Select your user name, type your password (if applicable), and then click OK.

    7.
    Click HP Recovery Manager.

    8.
    Follow the on-screen instruction

Can i put a 1.6GHz motherboard on my HP mini 2133 laptop which has 1.2GHz


Are you looking to switch out the motherboard or just the processor? If you find a compatible processor you could switch them out, finding a new motherboard would be much harder though.

HP 2133 mini-note PC webcam stopped working!! Help!! PLEASE!! :((


In your control panel you can select system properties and then device manager.
If the webcam had a yellow ! then you will need to install or update the drivers. Drivers can be found under the support section at the manufactures website.

(easy way to system properties is windows key + break key)
