Re: restore factory default on HP mini laptop.

Hey guy's stop wasting your time on asking stupid questions! The hidden system recovery for HP mini 110 is this~
1st - Make it sure the Adapter and the Battery is already attached on your laptop.
2nd - Press the power button to turn it on.
3rd - When you see the HP logo on screen just easily press F6 rapidly.
4th - Stop pressing the F6 when the "Windows Starting" appears on.
5th - After that easily read all the useful instructions on how to system restore your HP mini 110.

Note: Don't mind the Dell, F10 or anything just do this ok?

Re: restore factory default on HP mini laptop.

I have the solution, fist connect the laptop to the ac adapter then turn it on and start pressing the F6 key (press then release, press then release a few times) then it will go to the recovery partition that is hidden, then just follow the on screen instructions. let me know if it works for you. or if you need more help contact me at hibatz@hotmail.com

Re: restore factory default on HP mini laptop.

Mini DOES have factory restore capability, Press F11 repeatedly after restart (may need to go through HP's quickstart overlay 1st ie: start windows)
Then Recovery Manager loads and you can pick "Factory Image Recovery" or utilize other options.

Re: restore factory default on HP mini laptop.

Te mini should have a small hidden restore partition. Re-start the computer and press the F10 key when you see the HP start screen. this should take you into the HP recovery console. Follow the onscreen instructions to restore factory defaults.

Good Luck.

Re: restore factory default on HP mini laptop.

Hibatz is right, bravo hibatz. Continuously clicking F6 just after turning on the computer resolves the problem. Thanks hibatz.

CTRL-F10 does the trick for systems made by Dell, maybe you need to do the same thing.

Re: restore factory default on HP mini laptop.

Pressing the F10 key or any other F# key does not provide restore options. I tried every F# key because I thought the same thing. I contacted Best Buy where it was purchased and they want $130 to restore the hard drive.

Going through some of these fixes with my HP 311-1037NR with built in verizon wireless aircard it seems f6 repeatedly openes th Memory diag. press and hold f10 opens the bios.

Hit F11 at start up.
Go to the website for the computer you need help on, they usually have the answers.

Go to this site from a desk top and DOWNLOAD this program... you will need a USB flash Drive once finished DOWNLOADING you will then send it to your USB FLASH DRIVE then put that USB FLASH DRIVE into your laptop when it is powered off and turn it on it will start the process for you just be patient. You can then CREATE YOUR BACKUP and then continue on to RESTORE your laptop setting to a earlier setting you can choose the date your self. There is also other options there if RESTORE is not what you are looking for.
I hope this is usefull to you I did this and it worked also I did it because I could not get past the password as I did not know it...LOL.

I installed a (mac os lion). In my hp mini's


You need to re install your windows operating system. You can use OSx on IBM compatible systems but then you will face problems with leagality. Apple don't want you to run their OS on something that isn't made by them. Even though all of the parts are the same (just cheaper) If you are lucky you may have a restore partition on your system, to access this you need to restart and press "F8" then pick "restore to default(or factory)" Hope you are lucky.

    I forget my sonicwall admin password how will reset this password


    If the SonicWALL's admin password is lost, there is no backdoor or other mechanism to bypass the administrator login. Please note that prefs files do not contain the admin name and password. So if you reset the firmware and import a current prefs file, you can gain access using the default login credentials ('admin' & 'password'). Without a current prefs file, you must reset the firmware and configure from scratch.

    For models running SonicOS (Enhanced or Standard), you can reboot to factory defaults. This resets all settings including the admin name, password and LAN IP address. Import the current prefs file. The configuration is restored and use the defaults 'admin' and 'password' to login.

    For models running Firmware 6.X, you must reset the firmware (wipe and upload using the reset procedure). Import the current prefs file. The configuration is restored and use the defaults 'admin' and 'password' to login. The 'Reset to Factory Defaults' button does not reset the admin name, password or LAN IP address for these models
