The restore disc is the best way, however, you can do a system restore from the system tools in the accessories section of the start menu. There should be a restore point either the day it was first loaded or close to the day, if not, then choose the earliest restore point. This will get you real close to how it was when you first got it. It may leave a few programs or files that you added since having the machine, and if you do not want anything left, then you will have to remove them manually. If this is helpful or better, rate me accordingly, but please do not rate me if you feel this doesn't deserve at least helpful.

I want to do a factory restore on my HP Pavillion s3220. How do I?


Hi there,
To do a factory restore you will need to use the Restore CD's that came with the Computer. If you dont have them i would advise getting them from HP.

Damn you screw that thing up big time... LOL... if you are using xp then go to safe mode and do system restore. If you are ubuntu linux then download the free version and reinstall the whole thing.

Hp pavilion zv6100


This model doesn't have a built in recovery feature that some machines have, so you will need either an operating system disc or an HP operating system recovery disc in order to reload the system to factory original status. I'm sorry, but there is no other way around it.

You can use the HP recovery disc that came with your laptop to bring it back to its original settings.

HP PAVILION a305w


try getting into the bios and setting it to boot normally, turn off fast booting if its an option thats on, also, set your CD drive as the first boot devioce, then hard drive. Save and reboot, have CD in drive and just start hitting the F10 key as soon as it starts up, usually you hear a Beep when it detects that you are hitting the key for the boot options. HP pavilions where made to start and skip through the Post Process quickly to limit waitnig time, of course this sux when you want to boot from a cd.

You could try remove ing the BIOS Battery off the board and unplugging the system, wait a minute for it to discharge and put it back in, power it up and see if it lets you boot from CD.

Your bassically resetting the BIOS to factory defaults.

Also, i dont recomend buying HP Pavilions. i wokred on three seperate ones that a customer thought was a New machine ( this was back in 2001 ) but all the parts where 1995 parts, which means wghen they tried to upgrade to windows XP, XP doesnt have any generic drivers for hardware that old so nothing worked and yuo cant find any driver online that are that old.

Good luck anyway.

Usb 1 is not very slow, maybe computer system is busy doing some other services which is unknown to you.

if you plan to restore computer back to original state. you should back up first the important files(personal files any files that is important to you.)

system restore is not quite good except , you have an original windows system cd enclosed in your computer. doing this; insert cd and boot the computer using the cd.

If non of those; then you should provide windows cd and reinstall your windows: doing this; insert cd and boot the computer using the cd.

just follow the onscreen instructions.

some drivers of your computer notify me with the brand , model, motherboard details. if in case.
