Try tapping the F11 key at system boot up (don't forget the function key if your keyboard has one) you should be taken to a menu that restores the system from a hidden partition on the drive.
If that doesn't work, then try the following:

Click Start [img src="http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf-JAVA/Doc/images/c01403500.gif" border="0">and enter
in the search field. Select
Recovery Manager from the list when it becomes available. Allow
the action to continue, if prompted. The HP Recovery Manager opens.



  • Alternately, click
    Start , All Programs ,
    Recovery Manager , and then Recovery Manager .
    Allow the action to continue, if prompted. The HP Recovery Manager
    opens.




  • Click Advanced options , System recovery
    , and then click Next . The PC will restart and reopen the
    recovery manager.

    Alternately, if Advanced options is disabled, click
    Next , and then System Recovery . The PC will
    restart.




  • When the PC restarts, select the System recovery option
    and click Next .




  • If prompted to use the Microsoft System Restore
    program, click No , and then click Next
    .




  • When prompted, select the Back up your files first
    (recommended)
    option, and then click Next . Follow the
    on-screen instructions.




  • When prompted to Recover without backing up your files ,
    please STOP before clicking Next .






    WARNING:
    This is the final opportunity to change your mind about recovering the PC
    and deleting all the files and programs. Once you click Next ,
    the restore process cannot be
    stopped




  • If you are satisfied that you want to begin the recover process, click
    Next . The PC immediately begins formatting the hard drive and
    destroying all data.

    How to reset factory defaults to CK31? How I can put the settings to access WPA2 in wireless network?


    Restoring Default Settings
    You can restore the CK31 to factory default settings from
    Intermec Settings.
    Note: Using the Restore Defaults option restores all parameters
    including network settings. When you choose to restore defaults,
    you erase the registry. As a result, you may lose network
    communications.
    To restore factory default settings
    1 From Intermec Settings, select Device Settings > Restore
    Defaults.
    2 Select Restore Defaults and choose the Run App button. A
    Run Application dialog box appears asking if you want to run
    the restore defaults program.

    Forgot password to acess< and or its still default setting. could you tell me what the wireless 700 routers default password is


    Restore Factory Default Settings When you restore factory default settings to the base station, you clear your Internet connection settings and any special base station configurations that you have established. After the restore is complete, you will need to reconfigure your base station settings or restore these settings from a backup file. You should restore the original factory default settings only under the following circumstances: O You are experiencing serious problems with your base station, and resetting the base station does not fix the problem. O You cannot remember your base station password. In this situation, you must restore the factory default settings by using the Restore button on the base station, and then use the default password admin to log on to the Base Station Management Tool. To restore factory default settings 1. Open the Base Station Management Tool, and then click Management. 2. On the Management menu, click Back Up and Restore Settings. 3. Under Restore factory default settings, click Restore Factory Default Settings. While the original factory default settings are being restored to the base station, the Power light on the base station turns orange. When the light is solid green, the settings have been restored. If you want to open the Base Station Management Tool after the settings have been restored, type admin as the password on the Logon page. Do not attempt to log on to the base station until the settings are restored and the Power light on the base station is solid green. After you restore the factory default settings to the base station, you should navigate to each page of the Base Station Management Tool and reestablish the network settings you want, or restore the base station settings by using a backup file. For information about creating a backup file of your settings, see the following section. Be sure to establish your unique base station password as soon as possible after restoring the factory default settings to prevent unauthorized users from logging on. For more information, see “Change the Base Station Password.” please rate this answer, thanks

    Ibm restore to factory setting


    You have not explained what is wrong with your computer.
    Is the laptop working, does it boot up into Windows?
    What are you trying to restore?
    Are you trying to get into a previous Restore Point?
    The Access button takes you into the BIOS, you can change the BIOS settings back to the Default settings (ie the factory default settings).
    It is difficult to offer a solution without knowing the exact nature of the problem.
