Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook
Task manager is all that i can force to work. run a few things with it.
can't get f10 key to bring up hp recovery to set back to origional from factory software from recovery partition. instead it brings up ''Phoenix cME FIRSTbios pro setup utility.'' which is no help
to make matters worse he has broken his cd drive.
even though i can see a directory named ''start menu'' in command mode i can't get machine to find it and go into that directory.
might be that the recovery partition is modifies so now recovery is possible through cd drive only.

Turn on the computer.
When the initial blue HP screen appears Press the "F10" key.
A Recovery menu will appear.
Click on "NEXT"
and then click on "YES"
Your system will now go through the product recovery
hope this helps
While restarting the computer keep tapping on the F10 key
on the next screen you will find start system recovery , and on the next screen you will find advanced options
in advanced option you will find an option for Destructive Recovery.. click that
If you are not able to run the recovery on the computer as above then you will need no use a set of recovery cds..... if you dont have them you can get it from HP..
