Want to go bk to factory settings


Most HPs have a recovery partition. This can be found under start, maintence HP recovery center. If you can not boot to windows, then during your start up at the HP splash screen it should tell you what key to press for a system recovery/factory restore. This will cause the system to boot off the recovery partition.
Be forwarned this will wipe everything out, and you will have only the software/updates that were on the computer when you first took it out of the box. Make sure you have a back up of anyfiles that are important to you (pictures, documents, music, ect).

Hope this helps

My Toshiba Satellite A105 was accidentally dropped on the floor. When I turned it on and after choosing "HDD" from the Boot Menu, the screen would display this: PXE-E61: Media Test Failure,...


Sorry but Unfortunately Hard drives (HDD) are very susceptible to physical shocks and can be damaged that way. It may be possible to take it to a repair center to see if they can salvage some of you data but their are no guarantees.



If you found the information helpful please rate my response.

Hi, I bought an Inspiron E1405 Media Center Edition in '06 and it never really worked properly. I was never able to use the "media direct" button or any of the other feats. I thought came with? On top of...


Since XP was reinstalled and the HDD was not prepped with the Media Direct CD before XP install Media direct will not work. You can purchase a Dell Media Center CD on ebay for about $20
http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3907.m38.l1313&_nkw=Dell+XP+Media+Center+Edition&_sacat=See-All-Categories
I also found a Media Direct CD for a Newer Model, so I'm not sure it would work on yours. Media Direct requires that the HDD be formatted with Media Direct and then the XP installation, Driveras and applications, then install of Media Direct SW. Once done in that manner, you should be able to boot to Media Direct to play a DVD (To be honest, I never found the Media Direct function that useful)

Can anyone help me on how to reset the Bios password to default on an HP Compaq 6710b Laptop? I have an HP Compaq 6710b Laptop. It is booting but it cant go beyond bios boot and i cant enter setup as it is...


A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds
