Call up HP 1800HPINVENT and they can send you new discs, usually about 35$. HPs usually have a restore partition on the PC. You can access it by pressing F10 or F11 at boot. It will usually note the exact key if you look at the bottom of the screen first thing when the PC is booting.

My computer is saying that the system is not fully installed and all I want to do is to resite it to its factory settings


Which operating system ?????.....
The HP Recovery Partition that comes pre-installed on most new HPs is like built-in insurance if your system becomes unstable or fails.
If the problem is severe enough, you may not be able to start the HP Desktop Recovery Manager from Windows but you can start it manually by following the steps below.

Disconnect all peripheral devices and power on the computer.
Press the F11 key after the computer first powers on to start the HP Recovery Manager.

Follow the on-screen instructions to back up recoverable files on the hard drive to an external drive or media.
Continue following the instructions to recover the hard drive to its original factory condition.
Click "Finish" when the recovery is complete.
Reconnect devices and reboot the computer.
Reinstall software and update Windows and HP to current settings.

HP Pavilion Recovery Partition
Accessing the recovery partition on your HP Pavilion laptop allows you to restore your computer to speed it up, eliminate a virus or repair your Windows operating system.
The Recovery Manager program makes it possible to restore your laptop to its settings as of a previous date or restore your computer to its original factory settings, which will erase all of your installed programs and personal data.
Using the recovery partition allows you to bypass the hassle of keeping track of recovery discs, which could be damaged in storage, rendering them useless when you need them.

Turn on or restart your HP Pavilion laptop.
Press "F11" when the "Press <F11> for recovery" message appears during the HP Pavilion boot process.
Select "Recovery Manager" from your list of recovery options and press "Enter."
The Recovery Manger program will open on your screen, and you can begin the recovery process.
Access Recovery Manager Within Windows
Click the "Start" icon or "Start" button in the lower left corner of your Windows home screen.
Click "All Programs" and then "Recovery Manager."
Click "Recovery Manager" again to open the Recovery Manager program on your HP Pavilion laptop.

It is asking for the recovery discs that should have been made in the event there was a problem with the recovery sector on drive D or the hard drive failed. The only option is go to www.hp.com contact customer support and the technical department to see if they can sell you the much needed discs.

I received a NTLDR is Missing on HP Pavilion a620n. This happened on Friday afternoon and I still can't get my Computer up and running. I was told I need Windows XP Recovery Disk. Where can I get this disk...


When you bought the computer it told you to make recovery disks. you apparently didn't.
You can buy the OS at a local store and do a system refresh which is really much better. None of your data or programs will be lost as thye would be with recovery disks.

Default administrator on xp home ed sp1 preloaded on HPA305W hp system


Default after installing XP with HP Recovery CD's (or from hard disk) the administrator account is not password protected. Maybe a password was asked during installation or first-time login?

You can always redo the recovery.
