Repeteadly Press F1 during boot. Then at the menu press F8 to go to advanced options. Then select System Recovery, and you can get into the recovery manager to restore the original factory system.

If pressing F11 ("system recovery") does nothing, then your disk-drive, which contains a "system recovery partition" is inaccessible,
i.e., your disk-drive has failed.

You'll need to buy a new disk-drive, install it, and use the original "System Restore" set of CD/DVD disks to reinstall Windows onto the new disk-drive.

Need recovery disk for pc have none


By default your computer has a recovery partition, which can be accessed by hitting F11 key as soon as you start the computer, Keep tapping the F11 key and you will be able to access the Recovery manager, Select the option to do a system recovery and it will get restored to original factory condition.

Note: you can only access the recovery partition if you have not made any changes to the Original Operating system and the Hard Drive.

During boot up, screen goes directly to windows screen....it does not display F2 or F12 to enter setup or F11 to do system recovery. How do I get this screen to show up?


In the bios boot some OEMs set it to show the splash screen instead of the "Press F2..." to see this screen press esc when you see the manufacturers logo.

I could not start my Hp pavilion, then I use the restore system by using F11 and start my computer. Now all my files (my document) is gone. How I can recover my files.


f11 takes you to the BIOS/CMOS settup, and a system restore cannot be accomplished there. i suspect you went into the recovery console (notice i said recovery, not restore). in recovery, you have two options, non destructive recovery whitch only reinstalls the factory operating system and keeps your files. it does however changes the location of your files and you have to explore around to find them. a destructive recovery completely rewrites the non-partitioned segment of the hard drive which erases all files.........but............if you have done a backup which stores the files in the partitioned area of the hard drive, you can restore that backup with the back-up and restore utility.

HP a810n will not boot up


On most HP's and Compaq's you can restore the machine by pressing F11 when you see the HP/Compaq screen when you first turn the machine on.
There is a hidden recovery partition on your harddrive and your machine will be restored to the condition it was in when you bought it, the only problem with that is it will delete any personal files you have on the machine like photo's and music.
If you want I can talk you through recovering your personal files before attempting the restore, it will involve removing your harddrive from your computer and linking it to another computer.
