Factory reset laptop


Depending on the Brand of the laptop, most of them you can press the F-10 key repeatedly while booting up and it will bring up the Recovery console, Do not confuse this with the Restore feature, RECOVERY returns the laptop back to Factory New state and you will lose EVERYTHING that you have added, programs, pictures, documents and software, so make sure that you have backed up anything that you need to keep. After activating the recovery console just follow the instructions, they are very well explained if you pay close attention. Hope this Helps !
Steve
PS if this don't work for your particular computer, look for a video on youtube for your exact brand and model, for the correct key to open the recovery console while booting up !

My computer boots up but restarts after


1.Restart your computer with the Windows XP Setup disk in the CDROM drive.
2.If you are prompted to press a key to start the computer from CDROM, do so quickly. Otherwise it may try to boot from the hard drive.
3.After a few minutes, you'll see a prompt to press the R key to start the Recovery Console.
4.When Recovery Console starts, it will prompt you to enter a number corresponding to the Windows XP installation that you need to repair. In most cases, you'll enter "1" (which will be the only choice). If you press ENTER without typing a number, Recovery Console will quit and restart your computer.
5.Enter your Administrator password. If you don't enter the correct password, you cannot continue.
6.At the Recovery Console command prompt, type fixmbr and then verify that you want to proceed.

You need to Go for Pc Recovery from HP it self or you can get the recovery cds for it.
Try :-

Use the following steps start the recovery console and use chkdsk to resolve startup issues:
1.Open a recovery console. For more information about how to open a recovery console, refer to the section above: Opening Recovery Console .
2. At the C:\Windows> prompt in the recovery console enter chkdsk /r .

Chkdsk starts.
The time required depends on the size of the hard drive (it checks unused portions of the hard drive) and the amount of software installed. When chkdsk /r completes the screen displays the size of the volume checked and the allocation units. If errors are detected the result are displayed as CHKDSK found and fixed one or more errors on the volume . This is normal.

Sounds like a failing hard drive or corrupt file system.

 

Or possibly you have a non bootable disk in the floppy drive, assuming it has one as most laptops dont.

 

Is this Windows XP? If so, try booting from the XP cd. At the menu, choose R for recovery console.

 

In the recovery console, type in CHKDSK /R and let it run, it may take well over and hour to run, if it runs at all. If the recovery console is unable to load, or chkdsk wont run, you may have a failing hard drive.
