F11 will get you into the boot BIOS at computer restart
F10 will take you into System Recovery which does the trick by basically accessing an "XP CD" that was on a separate partition of the original hard drive. It's as if your using XP straight after an installation
Restart your computer, Press F10 on the keyboard and it should boot into the HP System Recovery .Now Remember this will wipe all files and load up factory-installed settings (drivers, programs, etc) and it will erase all of your pre-existing files. Please backup your files don't forget that

HP provided recovery disks. If you don't have them, you can get them from this site.

If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

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....http://comprehensive-support.blogspot.in/2012/06/reset-hp-laptop-without-restorerecovery.html

Restore to factory settings


If you did not create a set of factory restore cd\dvds when you purchased the computer, then you can hit the F11 key during post (while the HP screen is displayed) to boot to the restore partition. You will want to chose restore to factory settings, this will cause the computer to ask are you sure a couple of times before proceding.

Hope this helps

How do I restore this computer to factory settings (to re-sell)?


HP puts a hidden partition on the disk so you can do a full restore to factory settings. Generally you access it at boot up. At start up you should see a brief black and white message that says hit F? to do a system restore. Do that and follow instructions.

Hope this information will help.

Your response is very much appreciated. Thank you for using Fixya.

Hi there,
To do a factory restore you will need to use the Restore CD's that came with the Computer. If you dont have them i would advise getting them from HP.

Want to restore pc to factory settings


If it is a HP desktop,.
Press the F11 key on your keyboard as soon as your turn on your desktop
Continue pressing F11 every 2 seconds until you see the HP Recovery Manager window.
Then select Full Recovery on the menu.
Just follow the prompts and your unit will be restored back to factory default.

If this is a newer desktop this should work.

If it's an older PC, you may need the recovery cd's. Which can be ordered from HP.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
