There wouldn't be. It should have come with all of the restore CD's. If not, then call HP and have them sent to you.

I bought a used laptop,a dv4000, and would like to know how to restore back to out-of-box factory settings

Hi and Welcome to fixya!

In order to reset your machine to the factory settings, just follow these steps:

Access the HP Backup and Recovery Manager

1. Turn on the computer and hold down the "F11" key once the BIOS prompts appear on the monitor.

2. Click on the button labeled "Advanced Options" in the Welcome Screen once the Recover Manager opens. Choose the "System Recovery" option and click "Next."

3. If the "Microsoft System Restore" window appears, select "No" and click "Next."

4. The Recovery Manager will then prompt you to back up any important files as the restoration process will delete all data on the computer's hard drive. If you wish to perform a backup first, select "Back up your files first," click "Next" and follow the on-screen instructions. If not, choose the "Recover without backing up your files" and click the "Next" button. The computer will then begin the restoration process and restore the HP DV4000 to its original factory settings.

Hope this helps!

How to restore hp pavilion dv4000 to factory settings

The way to restore most PCs to factory settings is to reinstall Windows. First, MAKE SURE you have the Windows disc that came with your computer and the drivers/utilities disc that came with it.

To start restoring, put the Windows disc in that came with your computer, and run it. Find the option to install/reinstall Windows, and select it (you may have to boot from the disc, which can be done by changing the boot order in BIOS settings). Follow the instructions Windows Setup gives you.

After you're done with that, don't freak out if the sound, wireless, touchpad, etc. isn't working. Insert the drivers/utilities disc now and install all the drivers that are on it onto your laptop.

You are now done with the restore process!

I want to restore my laptop to factory settings its an hp pavilion dv4000

  • Using the recovery partition
    • 1 Turn on your computer and insert your recovery disc. Press F10 during start-up to open the console. This opens up the HP recovery console.
    • 2 Click "Next" on the screen that appears.
    • 3 Choose whether you want a nondestructive recovery (one that keeps your files in place) or a destructive one (one that erases your disk and rebuilds your system to factory defaults). If most of your files aren't corrupted or are still usable, go with a nondestructive recovery. Otherwise, perform the destructive recovery.
    • 4 Follow the instructions on the prompts that appear to restore your HP Pavillion.
  • Using recovery discs
    • 1 Turn on your computer. Press F1 at the first logo screen to enter the BIOS menu.
    • 2 Move to the Boot Options section of the BIOS menu. Look for the Boot Priority menu.
    • 3 Set the Boot Priority option to booting the CD-ROM first.
    • 4 Insert the first recovery disc into the HP laptop. Then press "Enter" on your keyboard to save your settings and exit. The computer will then reboot into the recovery console.
    • 5 Follow the instructions on the prompts that appear, to restore your laptop.

    Just been given acer5920 how do yo reset it to factory settings

    Keep hitting Alt and F10 keys together when it is first booting to get to the restore routine. This can be tricky so give it a few tries. If the restore partition was deleted this won't work and you would need to reinstall from discs to go back to a fresh install.

    Format/restore computer to factory settings

    Press F11 at system startup to get to the NEC recovery menu. From there, you can restore your factory settings. However, a "destructive" recovery will wipe the hard drive, including your personal files. Best to back those up first before performing the recovery.

    Hope this helps - remember to rate :)
