You can I believe push f2 when you power up and that will let you set the factory settings in the bios. Windows has some reset options as well for various areas of the operating system depending on what your looking to reset.

Restore to factory settings


If you did not create a set of factory restore cd\dvds when you purchased the computer, then you can hit the F11 key during post (while the HP screen is displayed) to boot to the restore partition. You will want to chose restore to factory settings, this will cause the computer to ask are you sure a couple of times before proceding.

Hope this helps

I have a packard bell imedia mc 1538 and need to resore to factory settings, have tried using F10 key with no result just goes to start up. The master cd just does a system restore and not the factory...


If the file that holds the factory settings is gone then there is no way to restore the factory settings back. You can however reinstall windows if you got a hold of a windows disc in the version you want. You can use the windows key on the computer somewhere to activate the windows. I would suggest doing a system restore the the last restore point and removing any unwanted things from there.

How to restore to factory


Factory restore requires the OEM restore DVD disk.

First boot the PC and press F2 during boot to enter BIOS. Change BIOS settings to factory default, to make sure the boot device sequence and all other settings are as they should be.
Then insert the Restore DVD into the DVD-rom drive and save & exit BIOS settings. It should then reboot and load from the restore disk.
