My computer is saying that the system is not fully installed and all I want to do is to resite it to its factory settings

Which operating system ?????.....
The HP Recovery Partition that comes pre-installed on most new HPs is like built-in insurance if your system becomes unstable or fails.
If the problem is severe enough, you may not be able to start the HP Desktop Recovery Manager from Windows but you can start it manually by following the steps below.

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.
Reconnect devices and reboot the computer.
Reinstall software and update Windows and HP to current settings.

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.

HP Garden Dreams Pavilion dv5-2129wm problem.

You killed the hard drive. It needs to be replaced and you'll need a new operating system to go with it.

My hp pavilion p7-1118 doesn't appear to have a sound card

Make sure the volume is turned up and not muted. Check the device manager to see if the sound/audio devices have any conflicts or is not working properly. If you have a megaphone at the bottom right near the time, right click on it and select properties to check it out. You might also click Start/Control Panel and look for Sound/Audio in there to check out.

You can always download your Audio Driver and reinstall it.

Get onlineand got to In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download andinstall the drivers.

HP dv6 overheats, fan runs but little air comes out. Warranty just ran out, of course. On start up sometimes error message is "operating system can not be found"

Overheating is undoubtedly caused by obstruction to air flow in between the fan and the vent. The heat absorbed by the heatsink is driven out by the fan and when some obstruction(usually lumps of dust comes in between, this overheating problem appears. You will have to open it up and clean the path of the airflow to resolve this problem. As for the OS not found option, it is most likely to be due to a HDD crash. See if BIOS detects it. If it does it is not a malfunction and is definitely a crash. I am afraid you will have to re-install windows to resolve this problem.

Getting message "irql_less_than_equal" ob my HP

Usually there is a code to accompany this which gives more specific information
You may be getting this for several reasons, difficult to say which one:

Try pulling out one ram module at a time and see if that resolves the problem
Check any hardware you may have installed, such as external drives etc
If you updated windows, installed any programes or drivers before this happened, try uninstalling them.

After that, I'd be inclined to do a repair installation of windows, although i think the issue lies with the ram modules
