If you mean you want to change the computer back to the way it was when you bought the machine then you need to boot it with the recovery disk and follow the steps to perform a system recovery. If you dont have the disks you may have a recovery partition you can boot into. If you have neither option available you may have to contact HP and order recovery disks which will cost you about $20 - $30.

Why is it you want to do this anyway? Some problems can be solved using other methods.

On a HP pc how to do a safe mode system restore

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.

simply insert a windows install disc into the laptop and restart it. you should get a prompt telling you an operating system disc has been detected, and how you wish to proceed. you can either attempt to fix with a the repair tool, or reinstall windows.

Hp rx4540.How to access the Boot loader mode?? .My ipaq just displays the hp logo on start up and then just freezes.Ive tried soft and hard reset.Help please

A factory reset erases all user-installed settings, programs, and data, and restores your HP iPAQ to factory settings.
CAUTION All user-installed settings, programs, and data are erased from memory with a factory reset.
To perform a factory reset and return your HP iPAQ to factory settings:
  1. Press and hold the OK and Rotate Screen buttons.
  2. While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the HP iPAQ until the device restarts.
  3. When the HP iPAQ restarts, release all of the buttons, and then remove the stylus from the Reset button.
The HP iPAQ will now restart and power on.

If you have done the above and still no go. Then your main drive has probably failed.

Can't remember my password on hp 6000 computer how

Are you talking about the BIOS password, or the windows password?
A hard reset will probably reset your BIOS password (see this thread),

To reset your windows password, you need your XP CD-ROM and follow this instruction.
