Google your computers model number and add "factory reset"
it's different for different models, so I can't give a general specific answer usually though it's pressing F8 at boot (before it starts windows) and selecting factory reset, google the model number and make sure.

SOURCE: Running Vista system restore 8hrs (not in safe-mode)

I am fairly sure that if you stop the system restore mid stream it  will just resort back to where it was w/o any problems.  Then you can restore in safe mode. If it took that long ,if I were you , i would go and clean the harddrive or run check disk or download hard drive tools from;    seagate.com      and check the hard drive .  Your other option is to use you restore disk and restore the whole thing. If the hard drive is bad you will ending up doing this after you install a new hard drive.

Try the system restore option. If you cant access it in Windows then try it in safe mode.
Reboot the PC.While in the boot mode hold down f8 key. This will give a menu with "Safe mode" option. Choose safe mode, hit enter let it load. While in safe mode go to system restore and then chose a date prior to the problem.

My pc wont even load up. it just gets stuck on the first HP screen with press f9 or f10. it just freezes up, and i dont know what to do. ive tried pressing both of the keys but none work.


try to start it in safe mode, then you can run system restore back to see if this fixes it. when computer loads up and shows the first screen, then push f-8 before it fully loads, this will take you to the safe mode screen, choose safe mode, then when loaded run system restore back to where the problem was ok. if this does not work then I would restore windows from the backup cd. if using safe mode when rebooting, it will change back to normal.

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)

Safe mode


Hi there, Try tapping F8 on boot to access the boot menu select "start windows normal". if it will not let you boot in to safemode with cmd promt and run "chkdsk /f" to check for bad sectors and repair othere HD issues. Also try "Last known Configuration" as a last ditch effort before moving on to System restore. IF system restore options fail to work let me know and we can do a system restore and restore your system to an earlier time through the cmd prompt. Good luck and i hope this helps

Hi

As you said that the computer is not booting up. I request you to perform these steps on the PC.

Step 1
Restart the pc and press F8 to enter into Advanced boot options, select safe mode and press enter.

Step 2
If it does not enter into safe mode then reinstall the operating system, as the operating system is corrupted.

If it enters into safe mode then perform system restore, here is the path.
Click on start button > All programmes > Accessories > system tools > system restore.

This should work
