Question about Computers & Internet
When you first power on the machine (assuming it's either a dv2000,
dv6000, or dv9000, or hdx9000), hit F11 on the keyboard repeatedly until
the recovery screen pops up. Click on advanced options, click system
recovery, then click OK when prompted. the recovery process will begin
and take about 25 minutes on a 5400rpm hard drive. then you must
reinstall everything that isn't factory.
NOTE: THIS WILL ERASE ALL DATA THAT ISN'T PREINSTALLED. AFTER THE RECOVERY, YOU MUST INSTALL THE INTERNET SOFTWARE, VIRUS SOFTWARE, ALL UPDATES (THERE'LL BE A LOT!!), AND PERSONAL SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE. BACK UP ALL DATA BEFORE YOU BEGIN. ONCE THE RECOVERY PROCESS STARTS, IT CANNOT BE STOPPED, OR THE SYSTEM WILL GET CORRUPTED.
Hopefully this will help.
