If it has a recovery partition on the hard drive you may try hitting the F10 or F11 Buttons on boot up then follow instructions

Factory restore hp pavilion dv4000 without disks


Dear Costmer,
Power up the PC while holding the F11 key down hold the key down for 10 seconds, see if recovery manager starts, if it does not, you have 2 choices.
1. Use the product Key on the COA sticker and a XP OEM install disc to reinstall windows.
2. Order a set of recovery discs

How to reset my computer HP Pavilion back to factory settings(?)


As long as you havn't deleted the 'hidden partition oir 'formatted your hard disk. then you will be able to 'reset to factory'

The method used to restore software and drivers depends on the operating system that was originally installed on your notebook PC.

There are several pages at HP for your machine. I think this one may be what you want.
You use the F11 key to start recoverry

STARTING UP PROBLEM WITH MY SAMSUNG GT19100


Hi Adil,
Do you happen to know when this issue started? Usually restarting or shutting down phone resolve the issue. If not you may want to do reset ( soft or hard ).

When a Samsung cell phone becomes unresponsive or when the device slows to a crawl, a reset may be in order. There are two primary methods used to reset the phone. Users should always start with the soft reset when the phone locks up or programs slow down due to memory or software response issues. A soft reset is akin to a reboot of the machine and usually solves most problems without any loss of user data. A hard, or master, reset is required when the phone completely locks up and becomes unresponsive to any cellular signals. This second and more drastic reset deletes all personal data, preferences and settings so that the device is restored to the original factory configuration.
Perform a Soft Reset
Step 1 Press and hold the power button for 10 to 20 seconds.
Step 2 Release the power button and tap the "Power Off" option under the "Device Options" menu that appears. Tap "OK" to initiate the shutdown.
Step 3 Press the power button again to restart the device.
Perform a Hard (Master) Reset
Step 1 Tap the "Menu" key from the home screen and then tap "Settings."
Step 2 Go to "Privacy" and tap "Factory Data Reset" to review the Factory Data Reset information.
Step 3 Review the Factory Reset options. Place a check next to "Format USB Storage" to clear your device of user data, such as music, pictures and other account settings.
Step 4 Review the disclaimer and verify your changes before tapping "Reset phone."
Step 5 Tap the "Erase Everything" or "Yes" buttons to confirm the reset the phone to factory settings. The device initiates the restoration process to the original factory configuration.
Perform an Alternative Soft Reset
Step 1 Power off the phone. If the phone does not turn off, remove the back cover of the phone and take out the battery. Wait between 10 and 30 seconds and then replace both the battery and the cover to restart the device.
Step 2 Simultaneously hold down the power/lock keys.
Step 3 Release the keys when the Android screen appears.

How do i reset my hp pavilion dv8000 to factory


Hi,
If your data backed up, you can restore the machine to factory settings by
using their utility which I believe installed and you need to hi a key
combination or a Key to start the process of resetting it to factory
settings!

By press F11 at startup you will be able to start the restore option, be
warned you will lose all programs/applications installed extra on this
machine.

Hp pavilion dv9000 screen and factory settings


*Actually*, with regards to the screen issue, software CANNOT cause a failure when the display assembly is physically moved....The two possibilities are the LCD harness (video cable) part# 432962-001 OR the actual LCD itself (part# LP171WP4 (TL)(03) for most models). My money's on the cable, not a stupid driver...
