Find a boot device?

You need to obtain a recovery CD for your operating system. It will give you some recovery options which may work. If not you will probably have to reload the operating system. You might be lucky and there is a hidden recovery partition to set the machine back to factory state. Google your machine for recovery partition option.

How do I install recovery discs

Performing a system recovery is destructive process and will destroy your as-is system and data, and return it to as-shipped state.
Basically, to perform a system recovery from your recovery disk(s) [which is what I assume you mean by 'install recovery discs], insert the (first) disk in your CD or DVD tray, and turn your computer on; enter the BIOS set-up and select boot device = device in which you have put your recovery disk. Save the changes, and continue to boot. Subsequently, simply follow the instructions in the menu.

I recommend you follow your manufacturer's instructions for performing a system recovery. HP's are here
A more general outline is given here

Do not forget to update your drivers and other software after you have finished because what you have recovered to is the state that your computer was in when it left the factory, not the state it was in immediately before you performed the recovery. (barring any hardware changes that may have occurred of course)

Resetting a hp 5150

The only real way (using WinXP) is to use recovery discs and reinstall from scratch. You can also just uninstall all the additional programs you've installed as well as your user files. that may take a bit longer than using the recovery CD's. if you're trying to boot from the recovery CD press F2 at boot (or whatever key to enter bios) and change your boot order to start with the CD/DVD drive.

How to restore to factory settings

You should have either a recovery partition on the hard drive or a set of recovery DVDs. HP tends to favor having both available. Power on the computer and you should get options such as Press F9 for boot menu / setup press F# for recovery. Press whichever key it states for recovery (typically it is F11). It will load into a recovery GUI select destructive recovery/restore This will delete everything and restore the computer to factory defaults. If you need to go the DVD route. Insert the first DVD and reboot the computer. Make sure that the computer is in boot from DVD drive first.

Need recovery disk for hp mini 2140


you could try this if it helps

There are two ways to access Roxio BackOn Track to recovery the computer, either through the boot menu, or through the Windows Start menu.
    You can use the boot menu to restore your computer to a previous working state or to return the computer to the state it was in before the last time it was restored.
    1. Press the power button to turn on the HP Mini.
    2. Press and hold down the f6 key to open the Windows Boot Manager, use the down arrow key to select Roxio BackOnTrack , and then press the enter key to open Roxio BackOn Track.
    If you can access Windows, in addition to restoring your computer to a previous working state, you use other options, such as Disaster Recovery.
    1. Click Start , All Programs , Roxio , BackOnTrack , and then BackOnTrack Home to open Roxio BackOn Track

    Hope this helps you

Windows will not boot on acer 5315 notebook

As the unit will not boot at, i am afraid you are going to have to do a recovery which will also wipe any data on the notebook.
To run a recovery make sure it is powered off then power on, as soon as you power on you must tap the left Alt + F10 keys together at the same time, now timing is important and can take several attempts before you enter the recovery manager. Keep tapping the keys at approx every half a second or so and wait for a message at the bottom of the screen which will state " Windows is loading files" then you can stop tapping. A new screen may appear after that which will state " edit windows boot options: for windows setup or it may say acer e-recovery" if this screen appears then simply press the enter key, you will then enter the Acer e-recovery manager which will then ask you "How would you like to restore?" select the first option for a factory default reset, hope this helps.

Recovery CD not loading onto Hard Drive.

Your optical drive is not reading the disk properly - a common issue as time goes by. Replace drive with a good known working unit and your recovery operation will take place.
