Restore factory settings


Try tapping the F11 key at system boot up (don't forget the function key if your keyboard has one) you should be taken to a menu that restores the system from a hidden partition on the drive.
If that doesn't work, then try the following:

Click Start [img src="http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf-JAVA/Doc/images/c01403500.gif" border="0">and enter
in the search field. Select
Recovery Manager from the list when it becomes available. Allow
the action to continue, if prompted. The HP Recovery Manager opens.


  • Alternately, click
    Start , All Programs ,
    Recovery Manager , and then Recovery Manager .
    Allow the action to continue, if prompted. The HP Recovery Manager
    opens.




  • Click Advanced options , System recovery
    , and then click Next . The PC will restart and reopen the
    recovery manager.

    Alternately, if Advanced options is disabled, click
    Next , and then System Recovery . The PC will
    restart.




  • When the PC restarts, select the System recovery option
    and click Next .




  • If prompted to use the Microsoft System Restore
    program, click No , and then click Next
    .




  • When prompted, select the Back up your files first
    (recommended)
    option, and then click Next . Follow the
    on-screen instructions.




  • When prompted to Recover without backing up your files ,
    please STOP before clicking Next .






    WARNING:
    This is the final opportunity to change your mind about recovering the PC
    and deleting all the files and programs. Once you click Next ,
    the restore process cannot be
    stopped




  • If you are satisfied that you want to begin the recover process, click
    Next . The PC immediately begins formatting the hard drive and
    destroying all data.

    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.

    Follow the on-screen instructions to back up recoverable files on the hard drive to an external drive or media.
    Continue following the instructions to recover the hard drive to its original factory condition.
    Click "Finish" when the recovery is complete.

    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.
    Click "All Programs" and then "Recovery Manager."
    Click "Recovery Manager" again to open the Recovery Manager program on your HP Pavilion laptop.

    Hello,

    Just try best file recovery tool which will help you to recover files from Windows hard drive. Couple of days ago, even I was stuck under similar situation and was thinking how to recover deleted files in Windows 7? Then I tried best file recovery software which really helped me to get back all my important data stored on the Windows hard drive. I think you should also try the software once.

    Good luck,
