Turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on, and look for a message like "press BLAH to enter System Recovery".
When you see the message, press the BLAH key.
This will start a complete "restore-to-factory" install of Windows.

Or, if you have a set of "System Recovery" CD/DVD disks from HP, then insert the 1st disk,
restart your computer, and select to boot your computer from the CD/DVD drive.

Or, there may be software already on your computer that lets you "burn" a set of "System Recovery" CD/DVD disks -- have 10 CD-R disks, and 5 DVD-R disks -- you may need to use most of these "blank" disks.

My laptop heats up when i play online games


Laptop is constantly using memory access, CPU and GPU when online.

Check your BIOS setting for Temperature warning settings.

Also, depending on how old the unit is, you may want to blow out and re thermal the heat sink.

Any kind of restricted airflow will cut the performance and make the unit run hot.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 and I keep getting the low disk space message, I have completely restored the computer back to factory settings, and there is nothing there to clean up, what can i do to fix...


You may need to fresh install. But before you do this make sure you create a backup of all your data into an external drive.

Try restoring again but this time choose the fresh install, this will delete/wipe all data off the drive. What you done may have restored to factory settings but data were kept.

Hope this helps.

I only see that you that can choose a restore point I can't find a complete pc restore option


Windows has the option the create restore points, so that at any point in time you can go back to a restored image of your computer from that time. This option is very handy to undo changes you've made to your computer in case any problems occur.

In order to wipe your laptop completly, you have to options. One is to install a fresh copy of Windows, and while installing you will be given to option to Format your drive. The other option is to restore it back to it's factory settings. To do this you need the restoration CD that should have come with the laptop. Put it in the disk drive and upon start up press the F key required for either System Restore or Factory Settings. One of these two options will show up at the bottom of the screen, right at the begining of booting up.

BOOTMGR IS COMPRESSED CANT GET ON F8 REPEATLY HELPP I TRYED EVERYTHNGON MY TOSHIBA SATTLITE P205D S7438PC


Hello.

Saw that you posted again ...

Since you can't access F8, the only options are Repair, Factory Restore and reinstall.

Change your options (usually F1 or F2) to boot from your Windows CD. Run the Repair option.

Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Give this a try:

The last option is a complete install.

Hope this helps.

Restoring to factory settings


to restore the factory setting you must boot the laptop off of the restore CD it will wipe the drive and reinstall the factory software and drivers just walk through the prompts. holding the f8 key will not restore the laptop to factory settings it just allows for options during windows startup

Format/restore computer to factory settings


Press F11 at system startup to get to the NEC recovery menu. From there, you can restore your factory settings. However, a "destructive" recovery will wipe the hard drive, including your personal files. Best to back those up first before performing the recovery.

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)
