How do i reset my meep

The answer depends on what you wish to do. The reset button on the back of the Meep will get you out of a stuck application. To remove all content from the tablet, you'll want factory reset which you perform through the Settings menu. The reset button does not remove content or return the tablet to factory state.

Back to factory settings problem

That means there is hard drive issue. Hardware problem. Your hard drive is failing. It will work for a while, meaning it may work for that day and then again failure.

You need to replace the hard drive in the notebook and then reinstall Windows.

Problem with HP pavillion ze4900 harddrive. bios says no IDE device when trying to find hard drive.


You can try to boot from CD/DVD drive with XP cd to see if the install program can find the hard drive. Try to use default setting in the BIOS.

Sounds to me like your hard drive crashed. I had one that did this and same thing. You can either replace the hard drive, use an external hard drive/flash drive (load the os and download laptop drivers) or use a cd based OS like Knoppix.

If you need help with the XP CD let me know.

I hope this helps!!!

I want set computer to factory setings

Fully erase the hard drive and start again? Usually press F11 at boot time (HP screen) to go into recovery mode, and follow instructions. Otherwise, you need the recovery CDs or DVDs.
