If you using Vista or Win 7, type in the start menu search: " HP Restore' open the 'HP back-up and restore'. a wizard should start. in the wizard you will find the option to create a recovery partition.

My computer is saying that the system is not fully installed and all I want to do is to resite it to its factory settings


Which operating system ?????.....
The HP Recovery Partition that comes pre-installed on most new HPs is like built-in insurance if your system becomes unstable or fails.
If the problem is severe enough, you may not be able to start the HP Desktop Recovery Manager from Windows but you can start it manually by following the steps below.

Disconnect all peripheral devices and power on the computer.
Press the F11 key after the computer first powers on to start the HP Recovery Manager.

Follow the on-screen instructions to back up recoverable files on the hard drive to an external drive or media.
Continue following the instructions to recover the hard drive to its original factory condition.
Click "Finish" when the recovery is complete.
Reconnect devices and reboot the computer.
Reinstall software and update Windows and HP to current settings.


Performing an HP System Recovery (Windows Vista)

HP Pavilion Recovery Partition
Accessing the recovery partition on your HP Pavilion laptop allows you to restore your computer to speed it up, eliminate a virus or repair your Windows operating system.
The Recovery Manager program makes it possible to restore your laptop to its settings as of a previous date or restore your computer to its original factory settings, which will erase all of your installed programs and personal data.
Using the recovery partition allows you to bypass the hassle of keeping track of recovery discs, which could be damaged in storage, rendering them useless when you need them.

Turn on or restart your HP Pavilion laptop.
Press "F11" when the "Press <F11> for recovery" message appears during the HP Pavilion boot process.
Select "Recovery Manager" from your list of recovery options and press "Enter."
The Recovery Manger program will open on your screen, and you can begin the recovery process.
Access Recovery Manager Within Windows
Click the "Start" icon or "Start" button in the lower left corner of your Windows home screen.
Click "All Programs" and then "Recovery Manager."
Click "Recovery Manager" again to open the Recovery Manager program on your HP Pavilion laptop.

There is not a download available for the recovery partitions. However, you can contact HP directly to order new media for restoring the hard drive.

The link to get you going is: https://warp2.external.hp.com/driver/dr_country_select.asp?Product=483904-003&lang=en&cc=us

I hope that helps.

How can I do a complete system restore without a disk? Take my computer back to how it was when we first purchased.


If your system is a HP Pavilion then at startup or boot you can press F8 or F10 Im not sure about the exact keys, but hp stores a recovery of the OS on a partition which is usually hidden and does not have access from within the OS.
So try using function key that works for your system, the recovery will start automatically.
but remember this deletes all the data on the primary partition ie the OS partition.

If this thing does not work check if there is a recovery partition that needs to be burnt on the CD/DVD.

Else you need a OS disc and format the PC and reinstall the OS

Hi. I cannot defrag D Recovery Drive due to lack of space.


You do NOT need to defrag the recovery partition. The contents of that partition are most likely in a compressed form, and in any case, unchanging, so do not require a defrag. It's a good idea to leave the recovery partition absolutely alone.

For future reference, if you need to defragment a normal partition in low space conditions, try something advanced like Diskeeper 2008. Diskeeper is the best and most powerful defragmenter, and can defragment drives with even less than 5-10% free disk space. By comparison, the windows defragger requires atleast 15%, and yet does not defrag system files.

My computer has alot of viruses and i need to reformat.(i would guess) but i do not have my master disc or drivers .. please help


HP PC's usually have a recovery partition on them that will allow you to restore the PC to the initial setup.

Make sure you have backed up all your data before you start.

Reboot the PC. As it starts you will be offered the option to boot from the recovery partition. If it does not then select the option that allows you to choose the boot device. Then you will be offered the recovery partition.

You will be guided through the process of restoring the PC.

BEWARE!!! IT MAY DELETE ALL YOUR DATA!!! BACK IT UP BEFORE YOU START!!!

Restore partition


Answer: When the notebook restarts, if there is a Recovery Partition a screen with the prompt Press F11 for Emergency Recovery will appear soon after the HP Logo. If we press F11 on that screen, a progress bar will indicate Starting PC Recovery and then the graphical interface of HP Backup and Recovery Manager will pop up with the option to either: a. Recover the PC to a specific point in time. b. Back up files.
