You can't. Only administrator has the access to restore properly.

How to Restore an HP System Without a Disc

The HP computer uses a Microsoft Windows operating system to allow multiple users on your system. When your computer isn't working properly, you can do a system restore to restore the computer back to an earlier version. When you restore your HP computer, you will get rid of any viruses or malware that are on your system. You won't have to get in touch with Microsoft or HP to perform this restore, and you don't need any kind of disc.Windows contains all of the restore applications you need for your HP computer.
Instructions
1 Turn the computer off and then turn it back on. Hold down the "F8" key when the computer starts to enter Windows Boot mode.
2 Key over to the "Safe Mode With Command Prompt" option with the arrow keys on your keyboard.
3 Log into your system as an administrator. Enter the administrator password into the field when prompted and then click on the "OK" button to log in.
4 Type "%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe" and press the "Enter" key to begin the computer's restore process.
5 Go through the system restore prompts to restore your HP computer.


Restoring an HP computer to factory settings requires that you do a system recovery. There are two types of recovery for HP computers: destructive and non-destructive .

Main OS does not mount


Boot in safe mode

Start msconfig.exe and configure windows to start with a clean boot.

a. Log on to the computer by using an account that has administrator rights.

b. Click Start, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER to start the System Configuration Utility.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

c. On the General tab, click Selective Startup, and then click to clear the Load startup items check box. (The Use Original Boot.ini check box is unavailable.)

d. On the Services tab, click to select the Hide all Microsoft services check box, and then click Disable all.
Note Following this step lets Microsoft services continue to run. These services include Networking, Plug and Play, Event Logging, Error Reporting, and other services.

e. Click OK, and then click Restart.

I want to restore my compaq presario SR 1050NX to factory but it is asking for administrator password and I didn't put one on


Try admin or just hit enter. If not remove the battery from the mother board for 5 minutes and see whether it helps. If you haven't entered a password on BIOS there shouldn't be any problem. Also try deleting if you have any other users accounts on the system.

Good Luck!

I forgot administrator password. how do i restore to factory settings on a compaq?


If we are talking about Windows passwords You can restore from OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) CD.
You can also obtain a program that will reset your password from outside Windows. I have one and have used it successfully several times.
If you need a password to access HP's boot process or BIOS then you may be able to get a program that will do this also or find a "backdoor" password for access. It seems many manufacturers created a backdoor password for just such a situation. If it is your BIOS that you need a password for start with obvious passwords like "backdoor", "password", "doowssap"(password spelt backwards) and anything else you can think of.

Did the computer retain your sign in settings (aka name you have for your account)?


If it did not, on boot up, a key may have been pressed that caused the compaq auto restore to begin. Compaqs are unique that they have the restore software on a partition of the main hard drive for a factory restore.
