If you insert the restore disc and reboot the machine and when the laptop is booting up hold down f12 and you should get the boot menu select the CD/DVD drive and it should be straight forward from there.

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

Screen freezes when reloading system disc


Instructions

Back up any important files already on your G4's hard drive. A factory restore completely wipes the system of all files you've created so, if possible, make sure you have another copy of all your files, images, music, etc.

Connect your G4 to its charger. Restoring the computer is a delicate process that erases and reinstalls the most basic and important files of your system. If the computer runs out of battery before the restoration is complete, files may be damaged or left uninstalled. The result of this varies from having to restart the process completely to permanent dysfunction of your computer. Play it safe. Make sure you have plenty of battery left and the computer is plugged into the wall.

Locate your Mac OS X Install CD/DVD. If you have lost the original disc or never received one (a common problem when purchasing used computers), there are a few options to consider. The first is to ask around; if you have friends or family with a Mac computer they may still have their CD. It would be usable on your computer. If this option fails, look online for a download of the installation CD. Some sites offer installation CDs for all kinds of computers, including the G4.

Insert the install disc into your computer's disk drive. Once visible, click the "Install Mac OS X" button. Follow the on-screen prompts to set up your computer preferences and begin installation.

Select a destination disc for the installation. This is typically the "Macintosh HD" icon. Next, click "Options," and follow the rest of the on-screen prompts/instructions. After this, the software is installed. The computer should reset itself or can be manually reset by holding down the power button twice.

How do I make a audio CD from my dictation machine


If you are already using your dictation machine then you don't need to install its software as its already installed. Now you only require Nero for burning files to CDs. You also require a CD writer installed on your pc. You shall know where your files are saved when you record through dictation machine. If you can't find the recorded files kindly comment back.

My registry is corrupted, I can't get the pc to start up. Can this be corrected without reformating the drive? If not, can photos be saved off the drive before hand?


You can correct this with out reformating the drive, by performing a system repair using your operating installation CD.
How ever to completely solve the problem you will have to reformat the drive at one point.

Perform a system repair, then back up your images and other files that you need onto external drives, DVDs or CDs or on a separate partition; that is if your hard disk is partitioned.

Boot application from cdrom?


Recovery cds work only on the laptop at its original state, meaning not yet formatted, because the recovery disk is linked to the system to restore minor errors on the OS... Those cds have become useless since "he formatted the notebook", inside is not already the original files... Buy a windows XP installer and install it bu yourself... it is very easy....

Good luck....

Problem with my COMPAQ Presario 900Z Notebook


I already answered this question. Your operating system cd is the cd you need to follow my instructions.

If you MUST get the information out NOW, you can bring the laptop to any computer repair center or buy a laptop drive adapter at your local Office Depot or Staples, and then plug it into your pc via USB.
