Hello,

Since SR1519 was listed as the model in your request wasn't found exactly. Here is the instructions for a close model. There may be minor differences in the instructions but the instructions below are mostly generic for most all Compaq's.

At the top of the page at this link, you will see 3 options for instructions on recovering your PC to factory state, just choose the one that best fits your situation.

I want to restore my HP Compaq 58 to its original state so I went to the Update and restore in the Computer settings then pressed Restore. After that I opted for Delete all and restore Windows. The problem...


The first option is to restore to factory settings (as purchased when new. This option deletes your personal files, and just re-installs to factory. If using this, it is advisable to find any discs to programs installed since original factory state (as of time of purchase) It is advisable to use a program like Balearic Adviser to collect information, and sometimes your keys to any programs you instaled , and cannot find the software to reinstall.
The second option appears to be to wipe the hard drive so that your data is not available to others if you wanted to sell/scrap (recycle) your pc. The data is often saved on a seperate partition on your hard drieve

hi.
there are two ways to completely restore settings of a computer:
1- enter Bios of your notebook (by pressing "delete" repeatedly") and select restore to manufacturer's settings.(or load from manufacture settings). THIS CAN RESTORE SETTINGS OF YOUR HARDWARE.

2- for restoring settings of Windows:
restart your notebook and before windows starts up (showing "windows starting") press F8 repeatedly.
then choose "load from last good configuration".

Need to bring computer back to factory settings Would like to bring my Aspire 9300 back to factory settings


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

This is an easy fix! To wipe it clean and make it run like new, while your computer is starting up, press Alt+F10 repeatedly. It will go to factory restore screen, which will ask you to confirm if you wish to completely restore it. Please be advised that if the computer goes to normal start up again, you must turn computer off and restart process as soon as it is starting up. I have done this to several Acers myself and it took me a few tries when i was 'new' to these steps. Also, please save any files or pics in email or upload them to a site if you wish to keep them. This will remove everything you have saved on your computer!

Please rate this solution if it was helpful!

I need to restore factory settings on my Compaq Mini 110 netbook, can anyone tell me how to do this?


Hello,

to reset your laptop, restart your computer and constantly press F11 once the first black screen on your laptop displays, or the Compaq logo display. Your computer will automatically load to recover manager and you can factory restore you computer from there.

2nd option: click start menu, click all programs and scroll to "Hp backup and recovery" or "Backup and recovery" click it and proceed for the factory default setting.

Good luck.

Clean and restore my computer


Your compaq should have come with a factory CD that will allow you to restore the system.

Insert the cd and restart the computer. It should boot from the cd and ask you if you would to repair the installation (or something similar).

Without the HP CD you can pretty much hang it up with a copy of Windows.

Restore to factory settings on compaq presario 2100


Do you have the restore disk that came with the pc? Just remember that restoring the pc to factory settings, will wipe out your hard drive as if it were 'new.' Try to save whatever you can before you perform the restore.
