Accessing the recovery partition on your HP Pavilion laptop allows you to restore your computer to speed it up, eliminate a virus or repair your Windows operating system.
The Recovery Manager program makes it possible to restore your laptop to its settings as of a previous date or restore your computer to its original factory settings, which will erase all of your installed programs and personal data.
Using the recovery partition allows you to bypass the hassle of keeping track of recovery discs, which could be damaged in storage, rendering them useless when you need them.

Turn on or restart your HP Pavilion laptop.
Press "F11" when the "Press <F11> for recovery" message appears during the HP Pavilion boot process.
Select "Recovery Manager" from your list of recovery options and press "Enter."
The Recovery Manger program will open on your screen, and you can begin the recovery process.

Reset button hp pavilion


Hi,
HP Pavilion not available reset button.
A hard or forced reset erases all information in the computer's memory which may restore functionality. Resetting your computer forces the system to clear and reestablish the software connections between the BIOS and the hardware.

Performing a hard or forced reset might fix the following conditions:-
Windows stops responding.
Computer stops before Windows loads - no boot, blinking cursor on a black display, and errors relating to OS not found or a missing drive.
Display suddenly goes blank and stays blank.
Software freezes.
Keyboard stops responding.
The computer does not return from sleep or suspend mode.

Thanks..

How to erase the hard drive?


You can use a HP recovery disc for your model computer which will return the computer to out of the box condition. You may need to purchase this disc from the HP WEB site.
If you just want to wipe the hard disk clean and sell it without an operating system installed then you can use this program.

Hp pavilion a1220n shuts dwn after loading hp8500 pr drv xpsp3 os


If you can boot into safe mode, then once in safe mode open system restore and then restore to a couple days prior to the install of the hp drivers. This should fix the problem. If you need to know how to get into system restore let me know your operating system (Vista or XP)

Everything got erased


Sounds like you may need a data recovery company to try and get it back for you. Doing this is not cheap, it can cost a lot of money, so you best get a quote first before you decide. The cost of recovery may not be worth the data you want back. At any rate, I found one company in a search for you...

Right click on My Computer
Select Manage
Select Device Manager
Click on Action and then Scan for hardware changes

That should look for your dvd/cd drive and install the right drivers. After it's done, restart you PC and your drive should be back.

Factory settings


If windows still boots ( and the original hard drive is still in the computer) you can click the start button and find the HP Recovery Manager under the All Programs list. It is probably tucked away under one of the HP tabs.

If windows doesn't boot, and you still have the original hard drive you can press F11 when your first turn it on at the HP logo screen. It should start the recovery program. (The F key can be different on different laptops but most recent HP's are F11)

Be careful, doing a System Restore will erase all your Data, so backup anything important!

I need to add a hard drive to my HP a1220n Pavilion for Photoshop and other Graphic programs. How can I do it if there is no available slot? Please help.


Hi,

A desktop PC would normally have capacity for 4 IDE devices such as 1 CD/DVD, 3 HDs or any combination limited to a total of 4. Additionally, most current PCs have 2 SATA connection points. If for some reason all are occupied and hence your post "no available slot", you may want to consider using an external storage device attached via any USB port of your PC.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
