Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook
I am trying to do a complete recovery on my laptop. I would like to get it back to the original state it was in when I purchased it. It will not let me delete the original xp partition or over write it. I have tried to run a repair on the original installation and now it just powers off in the middle of anything I try. Any help would be appreciated.
Get yourself a copy of xp or whatever.make sure you have boot from cd enabled in bios.make sure you have the disk in and startup.select install new .all information on disk will be lost warning will show.select ok .this is only brief assuming you know exactly what im on about.if you need to know more let me know.

Ok. There are a couple of ways you can do this. Firstly, most laptops come with a manufacturer's recovery cd. By either running this in Windows or by booting from it, should give you the option of, or similar to, re-installing, repair, and recovery. Following this link can guide you through that process:
If you are having trouble reformatting and deleting the original partition, then it might be that you have the Virus Warning (Enabled) in your BIOS. Open your BIOS and take a look, if you find it, disable it, and try again. When Enabled, it stops anything being written or deleted from the boot sector. Don't worry if you can't find it, not all BIOS have the option.

1. Turn on the computer and
hold down the "F11" key once the BIOS prompts appear on the monitor.
on the button labeled "Advanced Options" in the Welcome Screen once the
Recover Manager opens. Choose the "System Recovery" option and click
3. If the "Microsoft System Restore" window appears, select "No"
and click "Next."
4. The Recovery Manager will then prompt you to back up
any important files as the restoration process will delete all data on
the computer's hard drive. If you wish to perform a backup first, select
"Back up your files first," click "Next" and follow the on-screen
instructions. If not, choose the "Recover without backing up your files"
and click the "Next" button. The computer will then begin the
restoration process and restore the HP DV4000 to its original factory
