If your computer came with recovery media, you'll want to insert and boot from the operating system install disk (if it doesn't boot from your media automatically, you may have to change the boot order in BIOS [hit f10 at boot time]. Depending on the version of windows you are running, the boot options will be slightly different but you want to end up in repair mode. in XP that will mean hitting "R" to repair, vista/7 you will hit "repair my computer". Once you can get into a recovery console, you'll want to type: sfc /scannow That will find and replace corrupt system files and boot drivers.
If by restore to factory settings you mean reinstall operation system ..you need either a recovery partition or disk ..to use ..or a boot-able disk with the operation system .. if you have teh recovery partition just press teh key indicated on start for recovery and boot from the partition and proceed for recovery ..or insert the disk ..restart and press any key when asked for to confirm boot from cd ..and proceed with the recovery ..(same way for boot-able disk ) In case it does not boot from disk ..you need to press f12 on start to get to boot menu and select the cd and press enter to force boot from disk ..confirm by any key and go on .. If you don't have any recovery ..try to borrow or buy or make a boot-able disk ..and install the operation from it ..either by changing boot order in bios or by pressing F12 on start with the disk inside ..select boot from disk and enter ...again press any key to confirm ..and follow instructions ..If you do not know how to do it ..and you are ready to do it anyway...follow one of my services ..and I will guide you by remote assistance to make a disk ..and after that find a way to guide you trough the installing (probably messenger )
You should have a recovery cd, it will allow you to reinstall Windows. If you don't have even that then either borrow one from a friend and use it with you key (the one on the sticker), or order a new disk by following this
If the boot manager is missing then the hard disk and everything on it has became inaccessible - including the recovery partition. You will need to do a full reinstall using the recovery cd that should have come with the pc when you bought it - sometimes you were supposed to create it with the provided software. If you don't have it then either borrow a similar Windows install disk or order one from HP.
Next.... BACK UP your data...and TEST it.....make sure your data is working on your backup media....formatting the drive will erase all your data and start over from a fresh copy of Windows.
After that you need to boot your PC from the recovery disk (if it doesn't ask you to boot from the CD you will need to hit F10 key at your HP splash screen to enter the system BIOS. Find the boot order setting and change it so the CD/DVD drive is on top)
boot into the bios or if bios support diagnostics boot into that (typically F1 of F10 on power up) If that is not an option boot off the CD recovery disk and run diagnostics on the HD. Let me know we can take it from there.
you have what they call a boot sector virus best way to fix it is with a system recovery disk but if you go into bios and make sure your hard drive is there and that it is listed as first in boot order?
also if you have a floppy drive you can make some boot floppy recovery disk from www.bootdisk.com
Hi, You are correct HP do not provide the recovery disks for this Media Center anymore.
I've just about searched the net for anyone who may have recovery CD's for sale but no no avail.
If you can still get into the operating system use HP Backup and Recovery Manager, its quick and user-friendly. To run,
simply go to All Programs > HP Backup & Recovery > HP Backup
and Recovery Manager.
With HP Backup & Recovery Manager, file restoration is easy. To
recover a deleted file, simply use the Restore Wizard.
For a full
system restoration, press the F11 key during boot up and then select
"Recover PC" from the menu if there is a recovery partition available (sometimes you have to hold down Ctrl and hit the F11 key on boot up)
Other than that you may have to purchase a Windows XP or Windows XP Media Center installation CD from a reputable store like PC World for example.
If you are not able to create a set of
recovery discs, you may be able to order a set of replacement discs
from HP. HP maintains a stock of replacement recovery discs for several
years after the product has been released. However, because of
licensing restrictions, HP is only able to provide these recovery discs
for a limited time. If your computer is several years past its warranty
period, HP may not be able to supply replacement discs for your
computer. If this is the case, you can install a new operating system
that meets the minimum system requirements of your computer, or,
alternatively, upgrade your computer hardware.
To find out if HP has recovery discs that you can order and to order them from HP, use the following steps:
NOTE: The steps in this section apply to United States and Canada
. For Europe, Middle East, and Africa please refer to the HP support document
Europe, Middle East, and Africa - Statement on the Availability of the Recovery Software on CD
. For other countries/regions,
contact your local HP support center
for information about obtaining recovery CDs.
Enter the product number or model name for your computer into the field provided.

Before trying to order, make sure that you have read the important
"Read this..." information listed in this Recover Disc ordering section.
NOTE: If the link to order a recovery disc set is not available
, there may not be any more sets available for purchase. HP cannot
create recovery discs that contain a version of Windows that has been
obsoleted by Microsoft, such as Windows 95, 98, and Me. Some recovery
disc sets may have run out of stock and may not be available to order.
