My HP laptop isn't booting up and saying an operating system wasn't found what do I need to do


Make sure you do not have a CD or Flash Drive in the computer and then restart. If you still get this message, your hard drive has become corrupted or has failed. Your data may still be recoverable. Pressing F10 or F11 as the computer starts should start recovery options if that part of the drive has not been damaged. If that does not work, other recovery options depend on if you have another computer or if you have a Windows install CD.
If there is important data that you have not backed up, be very very careful because the recovery process can wipe your data.

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 have a presariov2000 lap top and I need to restore it to the manufacturer


Recovery Disks No longer come with HP Desktops/Laptops. There is a built-in program in your Program Files that allows the user to create their own set of recovery disks. But you may not need to use the recovery disks to bring the computer back to the manufacturer state. All the Windows XP and programs that come with your computer are on the hard drive on a separate D:RECOVERY partition you can see in My Computer. But you should create the recovery disks in case the Recovery Partition built on your hard drive becomes corrupted.

Several ways to recover your Laptop and how to create a set of Recovery Disks: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00608578&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&rule=21872&product=500508

Without the Recovery disks:

Right after you turn on your computer, start Tapping the F11 key. Shortly after the HP Logo screen disappears you should enter the System Recovery.

Click next and on the next screen they should be some information about System Recovery. After each screen that you click next (Go Slow so you don't miss it) One of the screens should have 2 options near the top:

System Restore
Advanced Option

At the bottom of this screen will be another Next Button. Do Not click next right away because this will start a "Non-Destructive" Recovery where the computer will only restore Windows files to the factory default but the addition data and programs you or someone may have put on the computer will still be on the computer after this recovery as well as they may not work properly since all the Windows files have been defaulted back to factory settings.

At the top, click Advanced. You should then get an option to perform the "Destructive" Recovery which will recover the computer completely back to Manufacturer Default. Choose the Destructive recovery and click next.

This process can take awhile, let it finish to completion (Do not turn off your computer or stop this process in the middle of the recovery, or you WILL need disks to recover the Laptop)

After it finishes, the computer will prompt you to reboot. Reboot the computer, it will boot you into a new Windows where it will do some final configuration and will be back to the manufacturer default.

Remember, this will wipe out all your data, so if you have anything of importance on the computer, Back up the data first, and its recommened that you do regular backups when the computer is working as well.

Stand-by


Go to Start-Control Panel-Power options
there is an option for standby mode adjust accordingly, when you preformed a system recovery it probably set standby to never.
