Restore hp mini 100 back to default. The F11 key does NOT work

Hi, I want to install my hp mini 110 back to default settings to when the unit was new. I have read all the forums and it is saying to hit the F11 key on start up, this does not work. F10 brings up the BIOS setup but there is no option on there to restore it. Can anyone please help me. Thanks

SOURCE: hi when i satrt up

Check to see if any media is in you CD DRIVE, or any other drive because if BIOS is booting from the CD or other media first, it never gets to your hard drive thus never boots windows. If clear, Press F9 and enter into your BIOS setup. You will have to make sure your boot sequence/order is in order to boot first from the hard drive. If all is in order try F8 hitting it repeatedly until safe mode options appear. If this doesn't work post a reply and we'll go from there.

Hp mini 210-1041nr does not boot up. Keeps looping at startup to did not start successfully


Teaching complex computer topics in text box will never be short.)
PC has vast POINTS OF FAILURE< it was an airplane it be crashed long ago and turned into beer cans.

there are only 2 paths, to any new OS.
(HP media kit or F11) (the HDD must be good. first)

no OS stated, why post not saying what OS is here ,XP?
the ESC key does it work>? guess yes.
this is first test. of all modern HP puters.
power on, (hammer , the ESC key) as the screen tells you do do in white text... see that>?
IF BIOS is alive and the battery inside is not shorted (take it out)
then the F11 key works
if someone (the bad guy) installed, a newer or same OS from a microsoft disk , (NOT HP) then not the PC is slammed.
the F11 is dead.
F11 is the hidden HP restore PARTITION.
here are the tests. in the correct order. on all ; PC , ill post them now. (modern HP only)
1: does BIOS work? Esc key , F2, F9, f10 , f11, )
all BIOS keys most respond at power on, if not the battery is shorted. remove it and continue. (end LT horror 1)
2: screen works , bios works, all bios keyswork even F11 tries to work but does not get to the blue restore pages....
3: if all the above, seems to work but only F11 fails that means 1 of 2 things, the HDD id dead, or the HDD was corrupted.
4: at this point we boot to good old and FREE, Knoppix,V7 media.
we boot it and do the HDD tests NOW,
be a waste of time loadning ANY OS on any bad HDD now, totally time waster to extremes.....
here is how to do that. easy. l
Click linux start button , yah just like windoz
then type disk, or find it in there. run DISK
this is disk testing. see the SMART menu , if the smart data shows
unrecoverable sectors, the HDD is TOASTED, its END OF LIFE.
A FACT.
if the disk test fails, the HDD is toasted worse.

http://www.pcdied.com/brick-dead.html#Knoppix

Ok knoppix boots, if not the PC is far far sicker than you think,.

ok this works ok.
the OS on your PC is wrecked.
so load it.
if F11 is dead, that means the HP restore partition is wrecked.
corrupted. as can happen using NON HP restore disks (media)
the correct path now is here.

the HP offical Medial kit from HP, we are not HP we are chat box fixya. (nobody!)

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07143


F11 may take you here on any 2006 or newer HP PC

the F11 key runs the HP Recovery partition, installer setup prog.
and land here, on a new PC or any not slammed, with wrong OS.
restore-f11-da0cv3s1i5gku1eufa4qjtra-4-0.jpg power on, hammer, F11, F11.,f11, from 1 second to 5 sec.
repeat power on if F11 did not respond. power off first.
the newer the PC the more choices here.

    Hi, i have just got a hp mini 210-1000, windows 7, intel atom processor, 160gb, 1gb ram notebook from ebay second hand and i need to reset to factory settings. i have tried esc, f11 restore system...


    It appears that your windows 7 is corrupted. Normally, by pressing F11 during start up should put your system back to factory settings. If it does not work, it means that your HP Recovery partition is deleted. Most netbooks does not have a DVD drive on it. You need to use an external DVD drive or a flash drive to reinstall your windows manually.

    Here's the link how to make a windows 7 bootable flashdrive.

    I have a HP mini 110. It has no CD drive. A virus has hit it and I cant do anything with it. How can I wipe out the computer and restore it back to factory default setting little it was when I first got...


    The HP minis, have a hidden parttion where they store the RESTORE tools.
    Try to start it in SAFE MODE and see if you can run the tool from there.
    Also, see if at start up (black screen with white letters) there is a message to press a special Function key (F1, or F10, or another) to start the RESTORE process.
    When you finally get it done, look into www.labellpcsolutions.com
    You wont have to deal with this problems ever.

    I need to restore factory settings on my Compaq Mini 110 netbook, can anyone tell me how to do this?


    Hello,

    to reset your laptop, restart your computer and constantly press F11 once the first black screen on your laptop displays, or the Compaq logo display. Your computer will automatically load to recover manager and you can factory restore you computer from there.

    2nd option: click start menu, click all programs and scroll to "Hp backup and recovery" or "Backup and recovery" click it and proceed for the factory default setting.

    Good luck.

    Want to restore pc to factory settings


    If it is a HP desktop,.
    Press the F11 key on your keyboard as soon as your turn on your desktop
    Continue pressing F11 every 2 seconds until you see the HP Recovery Manager window.
    Then select Full Recovery on the menu.
    Just follow the prompts and your unit will be restored back to factory default.

    If this is a newer desktop this should work.

    If it's an older PC, you may need the recovery cd's. Which can be ordered from HP.
    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
    Thanks, Joe
