SOURCE: restore factory settings

what i would do is go into dos. If you cant get into dos find a windows 98 setup disk 3.5" this will have the dos files that will allow the computer to reconize a generic cd rom. This should allow you to get your recovery disk working. Your software problem could of created a firmware problem also. Not reconizing the cd rom. This solution will provide the basics to get your cd rom loading the recovery disk for you. If you have questions or more problems feel free to contact me and i will take you through it step by step

If windows still boots ( and the original hard drive is still in the computer) you can click the start button and find the HP Recovery Manager under the All Programs list. It is probably tucked away under one of the HP tabs.

If windows doesn't boot, and you still have the original hard drive you can press F11 when your first turn it on at the HP logo screen. It should start the recovery program. (The F key can be different on different laptops but most recent HP's are F11)

Be careful, doing a System Restore will erase all your Data, so backup anything important!

Hello RogueM,

By pressing F10 at the notebook startup will lead you to the BIOS settings screen.
DV1000 notebook is hsipped with restore disks. With which you can clean your hard drive and install fresh copy of operating system.

The option for going directly to factory settings is not available on your notebook. This option works when the notebook is shipped with the recovery partiion.

You can clean the hard drive even if you have the retail version of operating disk with you.

SOURCE: hp pavilion dv9000..forgot password and now its locked up.

If you don't mind starting from scratch again this time forget putting in a password for you login or if you do want a password then wtite it in black texta on the black area of your battery bay with the battery out of course - you can still see it if you angle the bay but its not easly picked up.Then if you forget it again take out the battery and there is your password. Now on power up hit F11 untill you see recovery manger process start - hit the advanced button - select full system restore - no backup - full detructive and your unit will reimage from the recovery partition and be ready to use in approx 75min. Do your power settings after fully into the OS again and look after your laptop.

HP Pavilion Recovery Partition
Accessing the recovery partition on your HP Pavilion laptop allows you to restore your computer to speed it up, eliminate a virus or repair your Windows operating system.
The Recovery Manager program makes it possible to restore your laptop to its settings as of a previous date or restore your computer to its original factory settings, which will erase all of your installed programs and personal data.
Using the recovery partition allows you to bypass the hassle of keeping track of recovery discs, which could be damaged in storage, rendering them useless when you need them.

Turn on or restart your HP Pavilion laptop.
Press "F11" when the "Press <F11> for recovery" message appears during the HP Pavilion boot process.
Select "Recovery Manager" from your list of recovery options and press "Enter."
The Recovery Manger program will open on your screen, and you can begin the recovery process.
Access Recovery Manager Within Windows
Click the "Start" icon or "Start" button in the lower left corner of your Windows home screen.

Disconnect all peripheral devices and power on the computer.
Press the F11 key after the computer first powers on to start the HP Recovery Manager.

My computer keeps showing HP screen and f10,f11,f9 and wont let me do anything.


Hi,

It's a POST(Power On Self Test) problem you have there, do you hear any beeping sounds? It would be better if you gonna call the manufacturer to have it serviced, if the machine is still in warranty if not, try going to any computer local centers have have them reset the BIOS, to make it more easier for you.
