HOw do i reset my computer to where its practiclly new?


Restoring an HP computer to factory settings requires that you do a system recovery.
There are two types of recovery for HP computers: destructive and non-destructive.

Destructive recovery will reformat your hard drive, destroying all data and reinstalling the operating system and additional software according to the factory configuration.

Non-destructive, or "system," recovery will repair your Windows installation, replacing any damaged or missing system files and restoring the registry to the factory setting.

Non-destructive recovery is the best option if you are unable to back up your user data before running system recovery.Restoring with CDs


Back up all crucial user files if you are able to do so.
If your computer will not burn CDs, use flash drives of 4GB or higher to store your data.

Alternatively, you can use your network to transfer files.
You can then back up your data to CDs at your leisure.

Detach peripheral devices such as removable media drives, USB drives and your printer before recovering.

Also remove any additional hard drives by disconnecting the cable from the back of the computer.
Leave your monitor, mouse and keyboard attached to the computer.

Shut down your computer.
Place the first recovery CD in the CD drive.

If your recovery files are written on a partition, you may be able to select system recovery from the splash screen and your computer starts.
Select the recovery option you would like to use.
To perform a destructive recovery, click the "Advanced" menu option.

Select "Destructive Recovery" and click "Next."
To perform a non-destructive, or system, recovery, click "Next" from the opening screen.
Watch the computer while it is recovering to the factory settings.
Watch for any errors, as the computer will wait indefinitely for a response from you, slowing down recovery time.

Also, you may need to insert additional recovery CDs as the recovery program requests them. Restoring With Recovery Manager

Click the Windows "Start" menu, type "Recovery" in the Search field and press "Enter."
Click "Advanced Options," choose "System Recovery" and select "Next."
If you are prompted to use Microsoft's recovery program, select "No."
Choose the option to back up your files, if you haven't done it already.
Once that is complete, choose "Next" to begin reformatting the drive and returning the system to factory settings. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-Systems-and/How-do-I-RESTORE-my-system-to-the-original-factory-settings/td-p/50113

I bought a used laptop,a dv4000, and would like to know how to restore back to out-of-box factory settings


Hi and Welcome to fixya!

In order to reset your machine to the factory settings, just follow these steps:

Access the HP Backup and Recovery Manager

1. Turn on the computer and hold down the "F11" key once the BIOS prompts appear on the monitor.


2. Click on the button labeled "Advanced Options" in the Welcome Screen once the Recover Manager opens. Choose the "System Recovery" option and click "Next."


3. If the "Microsoft System Restore" window appears, select "No" and click "Next."


4. The Recovery Manager will then prompt you to back up any important files as the restoration process will delete all data on the computer's hard drive. If you wish to perform a backup first, select "Back up your files first," click "Next" and follow the on-screen instructions. If not, choose the "Recover without backing up your files" and click the "Next" button. The computer will then begin the restoration process and restore the HP DV4000 to its original factory settings.

Hope this helps!

I used the LG smart recovery and backed up my files by clicking system back-up. Then after it changed my files that will open only to window shell commor.? Any idea how to open again my files I badly need...


Hi there,
So did you mean you performed a system restore after you back up your system?If so,you can try a data recovery software to recover your files.I have succeed to recover files after system restore with Tenorshare data recovery.It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data.
Anyway,you can download a trial version and scan your hard drive for free to check out whether your files can be recovered.http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm

I want to set it back to default factory settings


There should have been a recovery disk created or included when you bought a laptop. Insert disk if you have it and restart your computer with the recovery disk in the CD drive. Make sure all your documents and personal data are backed up. When the computer restarts it should start restoring your computer to the factory default. There will be a wizard to guide you through the process.
If there is no disk or got lost,then follow this steps:
1.Save any files or folders on your computer with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
2.Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.
3.Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load.
4.Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options. Choose "Factory Restore" to set your computer back to factory settings. Follow the instructions on the screen.
5.Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot when you are prompted.
6.Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

if you think i've been of help,then pls.vote and if further question about it,i'm always open to help..goodluck and godbless

Windows vista wont load


Hi I believe that wouldn't be a problem. If you want to do a system recovery, the laptop usually comes with a back up partition where all the files to do system recovery is stored. You can use these files to restore the setting back to the point when you first purchased the item.

REMEMBER: All your datas will be erased when you do the System Recovery.
For me guide you on have to access the files, I need the make and model of your laptop.

NOTE: If the RECOVERY or FACTORY_IMAGE partitions on the hard drive have been deleted OR the files in these partitions have been deleted, these steps will not work. You must use recovery discs.

  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. Disconnect all connected devices (such as the Personal Media Drive, USB drives, printer, and fax), remove media from drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware. Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power cord.
  3. Turn on the computer and immediately press the F11 key repeatedly , about once every second, until Recovery Manager opens.
  4. Click Next .
    A Microsoft System Restore screen opens.
  5. Select No, I would like to see other options , and then click Next .
    A System recovery screen opens.
  6. Click Yes , and Next to continue the recovery process.
    The Recovery Manager gives you the option of backing up your data files. To do so, read Backing up your files .
  7. To continue recovery, select No , and then click Next .
    A recovery progress screen opens. Wait while files are restored.
  8. When System Recovery is complete, click Finish
  9. The computer restarts and continues into Windows setup.
  10. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup.
  11. Turn off the computer, reconnect all peripheral devices, and turn on the computer.
  12. Before using the computer, update and protect it by reinstalling any virus and security software that was installed before the System Recovery.
  13. Reinstall any software applications that were added after purchasing the computer, and replace any files that were backed up.

Please check if you have system recovery in you computer. If its assembled or if somebody formatted it before so most probably you dont have recovery in your computer.
If you dont have recovery then only way to do is to backup your files and reinstall windows in it
