Hi,

There should be a recovery partition on the desktop computers hard drive.
Follow the instructions bellow (or print this page) for a full factory recovery.

  1. Turn off the computer if it is not already off.
  2. Disconnect all connected devices and cables 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.
  7. The Recovery Manager gives you the option of backing up your data files. To do so, read Backing up your files . To continue recovery, select No , and then click Next .
  8. A recovery progress screen opens. Wait while files are restored.
  9. When System Recovery is complete, click Finish .
  10. The computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup. Then, turn off the computer, reconnect all peripheral devices, and turn on the computer.
  11. Before using the computer, update and protect it by reinstalling any virus and security software that was installed before the System Recovery.
  12. Reinstall any software applications that were added after purchasing the computer, and replace any files that were backed up.

Regards.

Windows startup


Go to Run (either in your Start menu or by pressing the Windows key plus the R key) and type msconfig
Click on the Startup tab and uncheck everything (disable all button will do this quickly) then click ok and reboot. The next startup should be considerably quicker. I would also recommend running a virus scan with Malwarebytes free version. Also install CCleaner and run it. Also, go into Control Panel then Programs and Features, and uninstall anything that you are sure you dont need.

When I try to boot my computer it either freezes on the hp logo, or it will go to a blank blue screen...what can i do to fix this??


sounds like a software issue, probally got a bug somewhere, or else maybe your drive has gone bad(common). I'd recommend doing a fresh install or re-formatting to your factory partition/ factory settings. Press F11 on boot-up
Here's Hp's site on the how to:

Product key


When you purchased your windows home basic, it should have had its own product key. Check the packaging it came in. That is the key you need to use.

Banner printing


got to be a setup problem. in your printer program there is a page for margins, page breaks. set all for zero or disable page breaks. as far as vista goes, personally I never liked it. I am running firefox and have been for the past three years. It doesn't have all the problem back doors like windows internet explorer. rarely do I ever get patches for the program - it just don't need them.AND firefox is completely compatible with 99% of all running programs.
