That depends, what operating system are you using? if its vista or 7 you dont need a disk. Restart the pc and when the bios screen shows press f11 or what ever key is assigned to Recovery Console. Follow the prompts and your all done. If your using xp you may need the disk for the recovery. Have you considered doing a system restore? or is the problem to severe?

Destructive recovery


A destructive recovery IS reformatting your hard drive. Re-installing Windows and keeping the old files is the "Non-destructive" route. Remember that you will lose ALL your data if you format but that means the virus will be gone too. Try downloading Avast free antivirus and running a boot-time scan, once that's done download and run MalwareBytes anti-malware, that should clean you up without the need to format.

Restore hp pavilion dv7 1464nr to factory settings windows


Step 1:
Which operating system ?
Restore Hp laptop factory settings without a Restore Disc Turn on the HP laptop. When the blue HP screen appears, press the "F10" key repeatedly until the "Recovery Menu" appears. A progress indicator informs you of the time before the recovery process is to take place. Click "Next" in the Recovery Menu. Decide whether you want to perform a nondestructive or destructive recovery. A "nondestructive recovery" does not format the laptop's hard drive or erase any personal files on your laptop. However, a "destructive recovery" formats your laptop's hard drive and erases any personal files you have on your laptop. Click "Yes" to execute a "Normal, nondestructive recovery." The restore process begins and your laptop restarts. Alternatively, to execute a destructive recovery, click "Advanced." Click "Yes" to start the "Destructive recovery." The restore process begins and your laptop restarts.

Restoring with CDs Back up all crucial user files if you are able to do so. If your computer will not burn CDs, use flash drives of 4GB or higher to store your data. Alternatively, you can use your network to transfer files. You can then back up your data to CDs at your leisure. Detach peripheral devices such as removable media drives, USB drives and your printer before recovering. Also remove any additional hard drives by disconnecting the cable from the back of the computer. Leave your monitor, mouse and keyboard attached to the computer. Shut down your computer. Place the first recovery CD in the CD drive. If your recovery files are written on a partition, you may be able to select system recovery from the splash screen and your computer starts. Select the recovery option you would like to use. To perform a destructive recovery, click the "Advanced" menu option. Select "Destructive Recovery" and click "Next." To perform a non-destructive, or system, recovery, click "Next" from the opening screen. Watch the computer while it is recovering to the factory settings. Watch for any errors, as the computer will wait indefinitely for a response from you, slowing down recovery time. Also, you may need to insert additional recovery CDs as the recovery program requests them. b> Restoring With Recovery Manager Click the Windows "Start" menu, type "Recovery" in the Search field and press "Enter." Click "Advanced Options," choose "System Recovery" and select "Next." If you are prompted to use Microsoft's recovery program, select "No." Choose the option to back up your files, if you haven't done it already. Once that is complete, choose "Next" to begin reformatting the drive and returning the system to factory settings.

I want to restore my laptop to factory settings its an hp pavilion dv4000


  • Using the recovery partition
    • 1 Turn on your computer and insert your recovery disc. Press F10 during start-up to open the console. This opens up the HP recovery console.
    • 2 Click "Next" on the screen that appears.
    • 3 Choose whether you want a nondestructive recovery (one that keeps your files in place) or a destructive one (one that erases your disk and rebuilds your system to factory defaults). If most of your files aren't corrupted or are still usable, go with a nondestructive recovery. Otherwise, perform the destructive recovery.
    • 4 Follow the instructions on the prompts that appear to restore your HP Pavillion.
  • Using recovery discs
    • 1 Turn on your computer. Press F1 at the first logo screen to enter the BIOS menu.
    • 2 Move to the Boot Options section of the BIOS menu. Look for the Boot Priority menu.
    • 3 Set the Boot Priority option to booting the CD-ROM first.
    • 4 Insert the first recovery disc into the HP laptop. Then press "Enter" on your keyboard to save your settings and exit. The computer will then reboot into the recovery console.
    • 5 Follow the instructions on the prompts that appear, to restore your laptop.

    I have a toshibasatellite 4080xcdt laptop and i erased my hard drive. my computer keeps aking for a system disk. what kinda of disk do i need?


    Hi,

    The disc you have will be the drivers disc, not the windows disc, did you not burn a set of recovery discs when you first got your pc? It should not have deleted the recovery partition from the hard drive while doing a destructive recovery; it should only have wiped the c partition and left the other alone unless you set it to do both. If your recovery partition is gone the only thing you can do is contact Toshiba and ask for a set of Recovery Discs or buy a new copy of windows.

    If you want to restore back then you should have a recovery partition to check it press F10 when you turn on the system. If you have the recovery partition it will take you in and from there you can select any recovery option. (destructive or non destructive)

    I have a emachine T6520 that I'm trying to get to work.When I put in the recovery disk it freezes during the reconfiguring. What can I do?


    Maybe you should try to do a "destructive" restore. when restoring from the recovery disc, you have the option to do a "destructive" or "none destructive" system recovery. if you choose to to non destructive recovery, then any virus that may be on your pc will not be removed and this may be the reason why your recovery always stops half way through. note that this will format the hard drive and you will loose all the files on the hard drive, including photos and documents. if this doesn't work then you should try to find out if you have a hardware problem. you can download one diagnostic software from seagate, that you burn to a cd. you use this as a boot disc, like the recovery disc, to test your hard drive, memory and motherboard to see if you need to replace any components. the most common problem is the hard drive. http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=SeaTools&vgnextoid=720bd20cacdec010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD

    Non Destructive recovery


    Recovery discs are wonderful things aren't they? Most people lose or damage their disc and don't have it when it's needed. I would recommend making a copy or disc image on the hard drive of the recovery disc just in case. Glad I could help, if you need anything else just let me know.

    How can i restart my entire computer all over


    If you made the recovery disc's when you first purchased the pc, use them.

    If it has a recovery partition on the hard drive all you need to do is hit what ever key it says on the screen when booting up (turning on) sometimes its F11,to start the recovery back to its initial purchased state,

    then follow any directions it gives,it may ask if you want a destructive recovery,or not ,distructive means the hard drive will be formatted and ever thing that's on it will be wiped of,
    non destructive will only re install the operating system and drivers, and should keep all your programs.

    good luck

    Insert the recovery disc, included with your laptop when you unpacked it, reboot the laptop and follow the instruction.

    If your laptop came with a recovery partition, restart it and hit F8 function key while it is booting up. This should bring up a menu, select the recovery option.
