To use this feature put the original windows disk into your pc/laptop and reboot. As soon as the reboot starts starts pressing F12. Choose the menu option that allows you to boot from a CD. VISTA will start and in the next few screens allow you to install to the original factory conditions.

What is the command prompt in the HP Pavilion a6037c Vista recovery partition that allow me to type the command to recover to the factory settings.


You can access the HP Recovery Manager software using the "F11" command during the boot-up process. The Recovery Manager is a preinstalled utility that can help you resolve issues on your computer system that affect its proper function, such as viruses, system errors or hardware corruption. Restore your computer only as a last resort, since all the files stored on the hard drive will be lost during the process. The restore process can also be helpful in wiping the computer clean before passing it along to another user.

Restart the computer. Press the "F11" key when the "BIOS" messages appear during the start-up process to open the "HP Recovery Manager." This step must be completed before Windows has a chance to load. Click "System Recovery" and click the "Next" button. Click "No" in the Microsoft Restore window that appears and click "Next." Click "Next" in the "System Recovery" window to initiate the restore process. The hard drives will be reformatted and the computer's software returned to the factory settings. Click "Finish" to restart the computer with the original operating condition in place.

    Dell system includes a restore utility called 'Dell Symantec System Restore' to reset or restore your Dell system to factory setting. This utility is convenient because you're not forced to use the Windows startup CD to restore your computer.

    Step 1: First backup all your important data and restart your computer.
    Step 2: Press 'F8' if you are using Win7/Vista or 'Ctrl + F11' if you has Win Xp. 'Advanced Boot Option' menu options will be opened.
    Step 3: Choose 'Repair your computer' from the 'Advanced Boot Options' from the menu and press 'Enter'.
    Step 4: Select language setting and press 'Enter'. Now Login window will be appeared.
    Step 5: Now login as administrator to continue the factory reset process.
    Step 6: Click 'Dell Factory Image Restore' followed by the 'Next' button.
    Step 7: Choose the check box marked 'Yes, reformat disk drive and recover system software to manufacturer condition'. Once the check box is chosen, simply select the 'Next' button and your Dell computer/laptop is renewed to factory setting.
    Step 8: Press 'Finish' once it has been done. ...

    This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the Dell computer and reset the configuration settings to factory setting.
