SOURCE: How do I factory restore

F11 will get you into the boot BIOS at computer restart
F10 will take you into System Recovery which does the trick by basically accessing an "XP CD" that was on a separate partition of the original hard drive. It's as if your using XP straight after an installation
Restart your computer, Press F10 on the keyboard and it should boot into the HP System Recovery .Now Remember this will wipe all files and load up factory-installed settings (drivers, programs, etc) and it will erase all of your pre-existing files. Please backup your files don't forget that

Restore to factory condition


Launch the HP recovery application that should be installed on your computer. Then select the factory reset option. This will boot the computer into a small partition that will allow the computer to reformat and restore back to factory standards. Please note that selecting this will delete all data on your machine.

How to reset


Which operating system ??..

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.

HP Desktop factory settings
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.

I'm lookin to restore my hp netbook to factory settings. I tried to system restore and it wasn't allowed.


if you want to do the factory default setting then you need to install the operating system with the help of recovery cd's.

if you have the recovery cd's you need to connect the usb external cd/dvd drive to the computer.

if you don't have the recovery cd's you can get it from www.hp.com or you can call hp telephone support they will help you out.

How to reboot my dell desk top computer


  1. While most Dell desktops respond well to "System Restore," which restores the Windows operating system, occasionally a computer may need to be restored to factory settings. This is usually done as a last resort and is usually due to viruses that can't be removed. While you should try "System Restore" on your Dell first, resetting the desktop to factory settings is an option. This is done through a PC restore by Symantec. Be aware that not all Dell desktops have this ability, and before proceeding with this option, you should call Dell tech support

  2. Make copies of all things on your PC you want to save, such as photos, documents and other installed programs. Resetting your PC to factory settings will erase all data on the hard drive. It will erase anything that you installed on your computer after you received it.

  3. Restart your computer.

  4. As the computer is turning on, you will see a blue bar that says "Dell.com" across the top of your monitor. At this time, press the Ctrl and F11 keys simultaneously. If you wait too long, you will miss the opportunity to do this and will have to restart your computer again.

  5. Click the "Restore" option when the next screen appears.

  6. Click "Confirm." The PC will begin its resetting process. This process takes approximately 10 minutes.

  7. Click "Finish" when the process is complete. Allow the PC to restart itself. Do not restart it yourself since it needs to run through its boot program.

  8. Click "Yes" to allow the computer to restart. When it does, it will be at original settings, and you will see the "End User License Agreement" screen. Click "Next." The System Restore screen will appear, and the computer will do another restart.

  9. Once it does another restart, click "OK." You have now reset your Dell desktop to factory settings.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

Clean and restore my computer


Your compaq should have come with a factory CD that will allow you to restore the system.

Insert the cd and restart the computer. It should boot from the cd and ask you if you would to repair the installation (or something similar).

Without the HP CD you can pretty much hang it up with a copy of Windows.
