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.

Unable to create restore point after upgrading to Windows 7 from Windows vista

Well. On xp when I had this prob it had something to do with the OS not working. And in the end I had to reinstall it. You may just want to put the OS cd back in and do a repair. I dont know if you can do a repair with W7 but if you can I would do this

Tried to install sp37394 on my HP amd processor


You can try installing SP3 in safe mode, so that It doesn't conflict with any application software.
It should get installed successfully and problems should be fixed.
(Restart PC and keep tapping F8 to get advanced menu options and choose safe mode from there)
Let me know if you need any more help !

Thanks !

I loaded xp service pack two when my computer was xp service pack one, now i'm locked out. I dont have the original service pack 1 cd!

Did you try performing a system restore to a point before installing SP2? If you had System Restore enabled, try performing a restore. Let me know if it works.

Restart issue

Sounds like your computer constantly loads up some kind of ghost image that restores your PC to a previously set default installation. If you can't figure out what program you have that might cause this (and it's not normal, some kind of software has to be causing it) the only thing left to do is a full format and re-install to get rid of the offending program.

How can i reboot my hp pavilion zv6100 back to brand new when i first bought it. i dont have a restore cd that came with the computer. is there another way that i can do this or not?

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.

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

In order to format and install operating system again you need a dos bootable floppy or cd to format....
Best solution is that try windows xp or windows vista bootable cd ,it will format your hardd drive and also will install the operating system....
