Re: factory settings

If windows still boots ( and the original hard drive is still in the computer) you can click the start button and find the HP Recovery Manager under the All Programs list. It is probably tucked away under one of the HP tabs.

If windows doesn't boot, and you still have the original hard drive you can press F11 when your first turn it on at the HP logo screen. It should start the recovery program. (The F key can be different on different laptops but most recent HP's are F11)

Be careful, doing a System Restore will erase all your Data, so backup anything important!

Need to reload windows vista

Reboot and as soon as it starts to boot up repeatedly hit the F8 key until you see it come up to a screen with options. Select the repair option and from there you can select to restore to factory settings.

Seems like you need to re-install Windows or use System Restore. Look in documentation how to do this, or post again for help.

H P dv 4000 how to reformat c drive i have a 1oo gig hard drive how much space do i allow for xp home ed and sbhould i use a fat 32 or the other type

Not sure what Disks are shipped with your Notebook....

If your Notebook is shipped with Restore disks, you need to first insert the Disk in the DVD Drive and close it.

Now, restart the Notebook and start tapping the Esc key which displays the boot order.

Select the DVD Drive as the first boot device and save the settings.

The Notebook will start with the Restore Disk.

Follow the onscreen instructions and complete the reinstallation.

Better if you go with NTFS file system rather than FAT.

However, I am not sure whether you will get an option to select the file system.

Hope this helps...
