System restore simply backs up your HP laptop to an earlier date when it was functioning properly whereas the PC recovery feature actually backs up your HP laptop to its original settings....

Restore my hp computer to original factory settings

Hi garygarame...
I would try to restore the computer to a time when it was working good.
Try this solution...
Left click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore
Pick a date when the computer was working good
Otherwise you need to format your computer( you will lose everything)
Double Left click on "My Computer". right click on the main drive (normally C drive) and click on "format"...that will clear the computer of everything.
Then reinsert your recovery CD and reinstall your operating system.
Please take time to rate me

Well, if you have anything on it you want to keep, I would burn it to cd or dvd. Then, I am guessing it still has Windows XP on it, go to accessories, system tools, and choose system restore. When you open system restore choose "restore to an earlier date", and just go back to the 1st restore point that is listed. If you want to go further you will need the reformatting discs that would have come with the computer. There could be a way to do it with XP without the discs, I just don't want you to loose some of the preinstalled programs that came with the bundle. If I am reading it right, that is a 2004 system with Windows XP Home installed on it.

Connect projector to HP desktop

If you are attempting to connect an LCD projector to a laptop,you connect a monitor cable to your video card and the other end to the monitor input connector. You may have to use an adapter, I know on my LCD projector I had to use a DVI to VGA connector.
Can't say much more not knowing if you are having a problem with a particular brand of projector

Need to go to factory settings

AS SOON AS YOU TURN IT ON THE "HP" LOGO COMES OUT , look down on your screen where it says " RECOVERY " , I think is F10 or F2 and follow instructions from there , and select advance recovery , it will caution you that this option will destroy every file and programs you put in it , setting it to the DEFAULT SETTING or the FACTORY SETTINGS , like taking it out of the box for the first time. hope it helps AJ

I have a hp pavilion a705w bout 12-30-04 it wont boot most times

That's because it has a failing power supply. I post this a lot. Why? Because 70% or more of computer failure, is directly related to the power supply. Next up is Electrolytic Capacitor failure on the motherboard, (The 'Caps' that surround the processor, more specifically. These are Voltage Regulators for the processor)

Then harddrive failure.

Many times you'll see a solution posted to use a Restoration disk, or System Restore. This is just a 'Band-Aid' approach. The power supply, for you, is the problem.
