How do i restore my hp pavilion dv 5000 to factort setting?


There should have been a recovery disk created or included when you bought a laptop. Insert disk if you have it and restart your computer with the recovery disk in the CD drive. Make sure all your documents and personal data are backed up. When the computer restarts it should start restoring your computer to the factory default. There will be a wizard to guide you through the process.
If there is no disk or got lost,then follow this steps:
1.Save any files or folders on your computer with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
2.Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.
3.Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load.
4.Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options. Choose "Factory Restore" to set your computer back to factory settings. Follow the instructions on the screen.
5.Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot when you are prompted.
6.Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

hope this helps,Goodluck..pls response with your rate and testimonials below for further issues..thanks

How to install windows 7 operating system


To Install the Windows 7 Operating System (Win 7 OS):

Instructions for a "Clean/New Windows 7 Installation:

AFTER BACKING ALL YOUR DATA THAT YOU DON"T WANT TO LOSE, Do the Following :

1) Insert your Genuine Windows 7 System Disc (Retail or OEM System Installation Disc).

2) Close down all programs and restart your computer.

3) As soon as the computer restarts, you should see a prompt that says something like this: "Press any key to boot from cd/dvd"

....So press any key!... This will boot to the installation disc and prepare for installation or repair (we are going to be installing windows, so ignore the repair options you see on the screen).

*If you don't press a key in time, you will see that the computer will attempt to boot from the hard disc drive instead... if that happens, restart the computer and press a key when prompted.

4) Depending on your particular Windows Version, you will see a prompt that says something about "Do you accept the license terms?" Click "Yes" or "I accept", etc.. and continue on...

5) Choos Custom or Advanced Settings (the other option is for an upgrade..)

6)Select the desired hard disc drive, (HDD aka Hard Drive), Select "Drive Options", and follow the onscreen instructions "Delete the partitions" (Do not Leave another windows installation on the same hard disc drive, unless you are experienced and know how to "dual-boot" properly!) Delete the Partitions.

7) Now choose to install windows (be sure to select the newly deleted empty (unformatted) partition. Windows 7 will automatically format the drive for you and will begin to install windows 7. Follow the onscreen instructions and within a half an hour or less (depending on your hardware) you will be finished, just be sure not to leave the computer unattended while performing a windows installation, since it requires your input quite often to proceed.

That's pretty much all there is to it!.. if you have any more trouble...
Google it or Bing it.... Search Engines are awesome!.... Enjoy!





*NOTE- If your windows 7 disc is a "Upgrade" disc, then you must perform an upgrade while running your previous/older windows version, since Windos Upgrade Discs aren't bootable, they simply patch the older version, replace system files, etc... to transform the previous windows installation into the target/newer version. If you want to perform a clean install, be sure you own a Windows 7 Installation / System Startup Disc.

Windows vista on my laptop will not start my pc just stoped working


Vista Boot-up Repair

Vista is very good about repairing itself. Boot from the cd and when prompted choose your windows installation, most likely it will be the only one. Once that is chosen, windows will ask what you wish to do….choose repair, if windows finds errors in the boot-up process, it will fix them from the files on the disc….if does not find anything relevant or cannot fix the errors, it will prompt you to try system restore and give you hints on the restore points to choose, I usually will go back farther than what is suggested. If these do not work, follow the repair listed below.

Step one, you need a Windows Vista CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from HP or Compaq they will not do what you need done. Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks. For a rule of thumb, if the disk has the Microsoft hologram it should work. You can order a boot up floppy disk from here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310994 with this file, if you know how, you can use “ImageBurn” to burn the file into an ISO file which can be burned to a disk. Now make sure your computer boots to the cd rom first. If you know how to do this skip on down, if you don’t, while the computer is first starting up and you see the manufacturers splash screen, tap F12 (some computers it’s F9, others it may be another key, you may have to watch and see if the computer lists the key strokes for getting to the boot menu. If you still cannot find it, boot into the BIOS settings and change your boot order there. Save your settings and exit, the computer will now seek the cd rom as its boot source first.
Place your Windows disk in the computer and start it up. When you see the test at the top of the page “Press Any Key To Boot From CD” Just hit the space bar to activate. The next screen you will see will most likely be a Windows setup screen, when you see this press the “R” key to get to the recovery console. It will get there, it may take a little time, patience. Once it loads you will be given a choice of Windows installations, there should only be one, if there are more, always pick number one. It may ask for an administrators password, if you have not set this particular password, then just leave it blank and press enter. The next prompt you see is:
C:\Windows>
You need to type the following:
cd \
hit enter. Pay close attention to the spacing between the characters. There is a space between the character “d” and the “\”
You are now at the ROOT of the drive, this is where basic commands can be given and changed. You should now see the following:
C:\>
Now type the following:
CHKDSK /R
Hit the enter key.
The chkdsk /r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
There are occasions depending on how corrupt the system is, that this process could take several hours, so be patient with it.
Now, after chkdsk has run type the following:
FIXBOOT
Hit the enter key.
It may prompt you with a warning, that’s ok, just continue. When fixboot has finished, type: EXIT hit enter and windows will reboot. When the system reboots, tap the F8 key during this time and you will see the multi-boot menu come up. Scroll to the title “Last Know Good Configuration” and hit the enter key. If you were having some simple drive errors this should have fixed them.

About vindows vista


You buy a windows Vista installer disc from a website such as this one (Once the page loads navigate to Software>Operating Systems). After you buy the disc insert the CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive. Now start your computer. During startup tell your motherboard to boot from the CD-ROM drive. This is done before the Windows (or whichever operating system you use) loading screen. It will give you a message such as, "Boot From - F2." Press the button associated with the message for the boot sequence (In the above example it would be F2). This is where you select your CD-ROM drive as the primary boot device, then press ENTER to confirm the decision. The motherboard might ask you to press a key on your keyboard to boot from the CD-ROM drive. In this instance press any key on the keyboard and the Windows Operating System Installer will launch.

Product key


You don't need "Vista key", you need a serial key for your version of Microsoft Office, whether it's XP, 2003 or 2007; running it on XP or Vista doesn't matter - you just use the key that came with your Microsoft Office Package.

That being the case, I'm afraid this is all I can help you with. I am certain it's illegal from Microsoft's point of view to share your product keys, and probably from this site's as well. However, that doesn't stop you from trying or googling for one - if you will, and - for starters - you need to say which version of Microsoft Office you have. My hands are tied here.

Besides - if you lost your CD, how did you managed to install it in the first place?

Also, if your Product Key number would probably be displayed somewhere on the product's packaging [CD box?] or a manual.

If you can't find it - contact Microsoft Support on their website [www.microsoft.com] or Microsoft's offices in your country. They should /could be able to help you in that prospect.
