Use a restore disc, or the restore option in your start menu or on boot up.
If you dont have a restore option, you can buy a disc off the internet, just type your model plus restore disc.
There is a guide here that sugests you DO have a restore option in your start menu

Even after resetting the computer it may take several days to reset the internal workings of the computer. When i went for my E Test they asked me if my check engine lite was on in the last thirty days and if I reset the computer I was to run the car and come back in two weeks. I drive an 2005 car.

How to reset your computer

Disconnect the battery for a day or two and the computer will reset back to factory defaults, unless someone has connected a OBDC device and changed settings (OBDC readers cannot change settings, but some devices can, such as laptop computers with the necessary software and physical interface).

Either get the Restoration Disk, or a fresh, new Genuine copy of Windows.

Going by the US.
The disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call HP Support at 1-800-474-6836, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Have your Serial Number written down to give to the nice representative.
On the back of your computer next to the Windows product key, or up on the side of the computer tower, is a white Service Tag.
S/N = Serial Number.

This way that can make SURE they send you the correct disk.

For country's other than the US, use HP Support Worldwide,

When you get the Restoration Disk, turn the computer on, and put the disk in the optical drive.
When asked choose - Full Installation (Destructive Installation)

Remember, this will take the computer back to Day 1, when it came from the factory.

Programs, or applications you have installed, or downloaded = GONE
Photos, videos, music, personal documents = GONE

Takes it back to before you got the computer.

(Repair, or Non-Destructive Installation, repairs the basic Windows files, and leaves your personal stuff alone. However there are times the computer needs to have a Full Installation )

On dodge durango and chrystler check engine light came on...after do you get light off???

it sounds like you left the gas cap off after filling the tank. the computer sensed a "large" evaporative leak in the fuel evap system and turned the check engine light on. just by putting the cap back on wont turn the light off right away, but the computer WILL reset (turn the light off) after the next time the computer runs the "evaporator" function test. it might take upto 3 days, but it will reset. If it doesn't reset after 3-5 days you may have a different propblem. Some auto part stores will scan your computer for codes and try to sell you parts. At least this will tell what code you have and how important it is to fix it.
Hope this helps.

Resetting the computer

I would reset your computer. CEL will stay on unless you clear the codes or reset the computer. To reset the computer you will need to pull the negative cable off the battery for 20 Seconds, place it back on for 5 seconds then back off for 20 seconds then back on for good. Thanks for using fixya!
