Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
You will need to press the F11 key as the laptop is starting up. You should see this prompt in the top left hand corner just before the windows logo starts. The rest is yes or no answers to begin a factory restore or attempt repair.
If this fails and you cannot see F11 (or it just does not work) you will need to make some recovery DVD's if you are still able to access windows desktop. Press Start button - Programs - Accessories - System Recovery- pc recovery disc creator -OR
Press Start button - Programs - System Recovery- pc recovery disc creator.
Failing that, drop any windows disk into dvd drive, let it load & do a fresh install (not a repair) (you will be prompted) and while that is loading, go to another computer, type in www.hp.com. & choose drivers & support from the tabs, Enter in your laptops specific model number (this can be found on the bottom of the laptop near the windows licence label. It will say dv9xxxtx(replace the x with the number)) & start downloading all the drivers for this model. Save it to a thumb drive to move it to the laptop, start double clicking the .exe files to expand & install. That should get the laptop up and going again with all its drivers & none of that extra, not needed stuff that HP crams into new laptops. Sounds easy but you will need lots of time to load up all that extra stuff such as office & cd burning software.

just boot from your backup disk. it will guide you to reload the Operating system (factory default).
FYI, if you haven't delete the recovery partition, you can use alt+f10 to reload. just press alt+f10 during boot.

SOURCE: restore factory settings
there are 2 ways for doing this
1) Fast and easy without backup disk just do this
Acer: When you turn on the laptop and see the Acer logo screen, hold the ALT key and press the F10 key (you need to do this before the Acer logo disappears).
2) If the method above doesnt work u can do it thru backup disk u have got when u purchased ur laptop u shud have made it thru Erecovery software.

Follow these instructions carefully:
To start the recovery process:
1. Restart the system.
2. While the Acer logo is showing, press <Alt> + <F10> at the same time to
enter the recovery process.
3. Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery.
I copied the above from an Acer manual, and it works on my own system, which is not the same model as yours. But you must understand that this will basically restore your computer to the condition in which it was when you bought it, unpacked it from the box, and followed the instructions to set up a new computer.
This will give you your system back as if it were brandy new, but in most cases, anything you created, like DOCs, or XLS files, again … ANYthing you created since buying this computer, will also probably not be there any more.
You will have a pristine, clean as new, computer system.
Be careful, be absolutely sure this is what you want to do, and go ahead and do it.
