The HP minis, have a hidden parttion where they store the RESTORE tools.
Try to start it in SAFE MODE and see if you can run the tool from there.
Also, see if at start up (black screen with white letters) there is a message to press a special Function key (F1, or F10, or another) to start the RESTORE process.
When you finally get it done, look into
You wont have to deal with this problems ever.

Give this a try you probably have a virus..

Download The following iso listed below. It is the latest version of the Kaspersky rescue disk. You need to burn it to a CD with a program like Imgburn (Which is also FREE like the iso file). Then you need to boot from the CD and run the scanner. It should fix you right up.

Hp 110 mini start up repair not working

the battery does not come out easy on mini.

if had this problem. (i have a mini that i hate, and parked since new)
id pull the battery and test it now.
the has the full set of manuals,
read that and shows how to remove the battery
old batteries short, and keep the LT dead.

case 2
battery is ok,
so on the same hp page
see how to make your only recovery media, cd /or stick
do so and reload OS

with no restore point set (you failed to do so, say one time every 6months) then they are not there.
so is a waste of time.

use HP offical recover media method stated on YOUR LAPTOP
many PCs are full of virus or a bad HDD.
even the recovery partition cab be bad, so
out comes RECOVERY MEDIA, there is no other way.

unless using a clean MS install l.... and then tons of hp drivers.

Be sure your firewall is activated. You can chose to use the windows firewall pre-installed on your Netbook or you can activate the firewall in you anti-virus package.
Run a cleaning software designed for detecting spyware on a regular basis to maintain Netbook processing speed and to remove items picked up by your Netbook while surfing the web. CCleaner is a solid free version of spyware cleaner.
If you suspect malware on your computer because it is running slowly, has strange pop ups or the anti-virus software detects it, then download software designed to find spyware and eliminate spyware. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, A-squared Free and SuperAntiSpywate Free are free versions of adware removal tool to consider. These tools get rid of spyware when used individually or in tandem. Continue to run the software until all spyware, viruses and malware are removed.

Does it not have a recovery partition? If not only way is to install an operating system on a USB flash drive and make it bootable but you will need a CD to start with to copy the files to the flash drive. Instructions for doing this are all over the internet. Just google "boot from a flash drive" Cheers from Scott

How do i wipe my computer so it goes back to factory settings

When you purchased your computer the provided you with Either a Restore CD or A partition where you could restore your computer back to the way you got it from the store.

A. The Restore CD all you would have to do is put it in your CD Drive and boot to the cdrom. Once it boots up to the cdrom it will guide you through the restore process. Understand though anything you had before you started using the computer will be gone, so if you want to save anything you will need to save it before you run the Restore CD. Don't be intimidated by using the restore cd... it is made to be pretty simple. Basically you put the cdrom in answer a couple of easy questions and let it run. It will save you some money if you do it yourself.

B. If you have a restore partition you will have to look as you are booting up your PC to see if it tells you to hit a certian key to restore PC. Once you hit that certain key follow the above steps above.

If for some reason you don't have a restore cd or a restore Partition, call the manufacturer and they will send it to you for a nominal fee. I just ordered on for my cousin from Dell and it cost $19.00, and ofcourse if you ever have to wipe your drive clean again you can use the same cd.

I hope this works for you, don't be intimidated!!
