You have to use the HP Backup and Restore utilities. There are two ways to access this - either from within the operating system go to Start, All Programs, HP Backup and Restore and run the wizard which will guide you through the process.
If your operating system is not functioning, you can try repeatedly tapping the F11 key as soon as the system boots up to go into the HP Backup and Restore utilities on the recovery partition.
If neither one of those options is available, perhaps because the partition was removed or is corrupted or the hard drive was replaced, you will need to use the system restore CDs that came with the system. If you did not receive system restore CDs with the system, you were expected to make a set using the HP Backup and Restore utility when you first set up your computer. These CD's are available if you do not have them from HP - you will have to call 1-800-HPINVENT to get the restore CD kit.

Either you have a memory issue or operating system problem.
First, try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).
If still a problem, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.
If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.
If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.
You physically need to disconnect a little cmos battery in the inside of the laptop. If you dont feel like opening it yourself, ask somebody who has experience in building pc´s, it is not that hard. Just simple putting apart, shorting a circuit and there ya go.
I suggest uninstalling SP3... do you have System Restore turned on? Google how to check...
If you do, try rolling back that way. Start>Run>restore <enter> and the restore window will appear. Choose the restore to an earlier time option, and hopefully a choice for 'SP3 installation' will be there. Choose that to roll back... good luck!
