Q: Unable to Factory reset HP 2000 Notebook PC

Product: HP 2000 Notebook PCOS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit Hi, I have backed up my entire notebook and ready to factory reset but I am unable to achieve this. I have not been able to find the HP recovery manager on the computer nor a download available for it. I have held the F8 key during reboot but I only get a system restore point option, not a factory settings option. I unfortunately do not have any CD of Windows 7 ultimate Not sure where to proceed and help is appreciated, Thanks!

Last week I purchased an HP 2000 notebook with windows 8 installed I now wish to return and upgrade for a model with a faster processor. I only have a very few personal items on it such as my email address, windows password administrator details and log in passwords on a couple of apps.Therefore I am considering doing a factory reset to remove my personal information and any passwords I have installed.There is no windows key on the notebook itself. In the windows information there is a product ID number which I do not think is the windows key and another which seems to be it but consists of some asterisks and just the last five letters of a key therefore, I am uncertain about what I need to do.I am not very good with computers but as far as I can ascertain I need to do a factory reset via the HP repair software and not any other way.Any advice as to how I should proceed and what precautions I should take would be most welcome (I have watched the specific HP video on this proceedure, maybe I'm just stupid but I found it only added to my confusion).Don

My laptop is infected with a lot of malware, so I figured I'd reset the whole thing by doing a factory reset (also, got the laptop from my dad who has a lot of unessecary things on it). I can't manage to do the factory reset without a Windows 7 disc. When i visit windows' sites i get a message saying i can't download the software because the laptop came with windows pre-installed.I have the lisence key for windows 7 of course. Does anyone know how I can manage to do a factory reset without the disc? I've tried to type F1 while restarting the computer, but all I get is a notification saying that I need the disc.. I'm going crazy!  The same thing happens when I enter the reset menu from the control panel.Would be very happy if someone would be able to help me with this issue.

So I have the HP Stream Notebook and it's been working all well and fine. However I was going to give the computer to a friend and wanted to perform a reboot so he can receive the laptop all "new" and clean. Also my microsoft email got hacked and I never was able to recover it so being able to log in to the laptop was kind of a no go. However when I tried to perform a reset and wipe all the files the computer said it was unable to. I can't even see the log in option anymore it just displays HP and a black screen. Only thing I could do is turn it on and press F11 to see the troubleshooting menu, but everytime I try to reset it still won't work, it goes up to 37% and then it says it was unsuccessful with rebooting the laptop. I can't return it since there's no warranty but is there any hope for my laptop? This friend really needed it...

This is a friend's laptop (Sony vaio), windows 7 home premium edition. Apparently, after it developed some issues, a colleague reformatted the drive, and could not reinstall the OS.

I have tried the following:

- Tried to use the two recovery dvds created when the computer was purchased. It does not work. The screen is blank. In safe mode, it goes tries to the recovery mode, but then nothing happens.

- Tried to use the .iso image from Microsoft and burnt it to a dvd. The screen asks for the language and the country etc., then after it says install windows, the screen remains at setting up. Nothing happens.

-Tried to use my windows 7 "update" dvd to start the laptop. Same result as for the .iso image.

Grateful for any help. The laptop has a separate "one touch web access without booting up" key, and that brings the internet up with a "slapshot" browser.

Hi, i recently purchased a d-link router, so i could have a wireless router. Ive got it up and running, but having some problems with letting others to connect! I know what the problem is, i just dont know how to solve it!
The router is currently connected in port 1, which makes the ip adress messed up, and i can only have one other pc connect to the network, and that computer has to type in my DNS adress, because the router will not accept ip adresses automaticly. However this can be sold if i connect the router in the Wan port. But when i do this i loose my connection, it just get limited connection. and to fix this i have to go into the admin panel, which i cant connect to! Have tried by wireless and with cable, with no luck.

BUT!

If i reset my router to factory settings, this will be solved. But the router wont reset, ive tried reseting it for 30 secs with power on, but it just restarts and the settings are the same, have also tried this with power off!

What am i doing wrong?

Please help

I just picked up a used Eee PC at a thrift store for next to nothing. Model number is 1005HAB and it's running Windows 7 Starter.It is still password protected so I attempted to go into the bios to disable the Boot Booster and take it from there. The problem is there is no boot booster to shut down, and when I attempt any variation of F9, it doesn't go into the recovery options. Now I'm actually getting a message the says something about Shift + F8........ then goes to a black screen with a blinking cursor. So, by attempting F9, I seem to have made things stop functioning. Any help from this point on would be greatly appreciated. I'd love to get this machine working because it's like brand new. Since I spent so little on it (Literally $5) I won't mind taking it in, but I'd like to try to work on it myself first. Thanks in advance to those that might be able to help me!!

A:unable to do factory reset on toshiba laptop

If the Partition for Recovery is missing or damaged you may have to order recovery disc`s  from Toshiba { At a Cost }.
 
You can see if the Recovery Partiton is actually there ?
Control Panel /   Administrative Tools / ComputerManagement  / Disc Management 
If it is , it shoud be about 10 - 20 Gig in size and named Recovery.
 
As you have already tried from F8 to enter recovery , you may also try from Start / Programs / Toshiba Folder / Recovery / if its listed.
 
If all else Fails , provided you have a valid Product Key on laptop , you coould download Operating System ISO and burn to disc and Install.
This will not have Drivers or Toshiba Apps , you will have to get them later , if you wish to have them.

If your computer came preinstalled with Vista, it will not be erased.
I will get you information on how it is done.
If you installed Vista, after purchase, it will be erased. The OS that came with your computer on day 1 will be reinstalled.

So I've purchased a new laptop that has never performed well. HP wants to do a remote wipe & factory reset. I need to save all my files, bookmarks, settings, etc. before we do this. Feel free to talk to me like I don't know what I'm doing, because essentially I don't. How do I back up everything necessary before we wipe this computer clean?
I have an external hard drive available for all the files, pictures, music... but I've never had to back up settings/bookmarks/etc.
If I'm asking a rather involved question or if there's a tutorial or previous post on this topic that I missed, please let me know.
And thank you in advance.

A:To-do before factory reset???

Welcome to Windows Eight Forums, HighCountry.

You have the right idea to back up all important files.

Do you sign into your computer with a MS account? If so, all settings, apps, and Start Screen arrangement will be saved and should be restored upon boot.

So far as Firefox, you may want to post that question here: Firefox

I reset my computer to factory defaults on my computer, because it was acting buggy, and I was afraid something horrible was going on.

I'm not a computer genius, heck.. I can't even say I'm close to it.

But I knew that the reset would help me get my computer back to the way I had it when I got it in February, and I can start from there once more.

Now.. with that being said.
Every time I log on now to the computer, it acts as if I'm hitting F10 still, and giving me three options.. The Factory Reset, the Total Reset (which is meant to be used when installing a new verision of Windows), and then "Q" which makes me exit.

After the reset, everything seemed to straighten itself out, which is the bonus for me. I know now that if I do something horrible to this computer, it'll fix itself. Other than for that.. I'm at a loss.

Now the question is, what do I do to get rid of this screen?
I'm running on Windows XP SP2.
Much help would be appreciated.

Hi everyone. I have had an Hp G60t-200 laptop for about 5 years and I want to do a factory reset. I have way too much stuff on it and would like to just start out with a clean slate again.

There is a problem. It orgionally came with windows vista pre-installed without the OS disks. I got the Windows 7 upgrade disks when windows 7 came out. I do not have the full version of Windows 7 OS nor do I have the Vista disks, which I don't think would be much help anyway.

My version of Windows is Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit Service Pack 1. I do have all the partitions in the recovery drive, but I'm not sure if they can help. Also I never made a system image at the time, because I was like 10. I do have a system recovery disk, but so far they have been no help. I do not want to keep any of the files and I have backed up all the important files, pictures, videos, etc...

Please help. None of the forums I have gone to had a solution. Thanks.

A:Need help with factory reset.

You can download the ISO of windows 7 OS - bit version you have and burn to a disc. Then do a clean install with that. Making sure to use current Product Key. If you can't find it, use Belarc to show you.

Hi,Unless you have deleted the Recovery partition on your machine, otherwise your machine should have a Recovery partition. Make sure backing up all of your files before restoring the PC/laptop to factory settings.To set your PC/laptop to factory settings, restart the PC/laptop. At the HP welcome screen hit repeatly the F11 key (or Esc key) to launch the recovery process. Follow the instructions provided on the screen.Please also check this:  http://h50146.www5.hp.com/lib/doc/manual/workstation/xw8400/HP_Backup_and_Recovery_Manager_User_Guid... Otherwise you need a Recovery set. Regards.

I am new to this forum and this is my first post... In light of recent events my computer has a ton of malware and spyware for the second time now... The first time I was able to go in and just go to control panel and factory reset it by clicking the option... now it no longer exists and It says I need a point to go back to... but I just want it clean and wiped, I went back to before I got the virus and it was still there after I restored it to that point so it was unsuccessful... How do I go about doing this with a complete system restore without using a point, I do NOT have an original disk with my OS because it came pre-installed with Home Premium... Any help would be appreciated!

A:I could use some help with a factory reset...

Welcome to the Forum.
A restore point probably would not help because it is probably infected also.
We need some information to start off with.
What infections were found?
What programs did you run to remove the infections?
What anti virus programs do you use (Active)?

Could you do this to give us some more information.

Just remember to run a scan regularly, as the free version do not offer real-time protection and automatic scanning.2. CCleaner: Yes. Don't use the Registry Cleaner option, though.3. Adblock Plus: Yes. If you use Chrome however then I recommend uBlock, which is less resource intensive than Adblock Plus.4. Heimdal Free: I prefer Secunia PSI, as Secunia scans everything - Heimdal doesn't.5. SpywareBlaster Free: Yes.Hope this helps Regards,Alex

wendy1358 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!While Microsoft tells you that there is no risk in the Win10 Upgrade, because they let you believe that you can always revert back to your original OS and setup within 30 days, the ugly fact of the matter is that the Win10 GoBack function has proven to be unreliable -- and when it fails, it can leave machines in a corrupted state -- which doesn't always happen, but it does happen often enough to be a problem and you won't get any warning in advance that it is going to trash your PC!If that is not bad enough, the Win10 Upgrade is know, in some cases, to corrupt the Recovery partition stored there by the OEM that built the original machine. This pretty much guarantees that no HP Recovery is going to work: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Video-Display-and-Touch/HP-Recovery-Manager-Blocked-After-Windo...This means that RESET no longer works on your laptop due to your doing the Win10 Upgrade.To actually restore your PC to its original condition, you need something known as HP Recovery Media. To see if there is Recovery Media available for your PC, I will need the detailed product number:  http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03754824?jumpid=reg_r1002_usen_c-001_title_r0001We can proceed once you provide the information.Thanks

A:need to know how to do a factory reset

It "may" be that the recovery partition doesn't exsist anymore...? How did you instal win-7?There are a couple of useful links re' the reset routine at this site (another forum to give it credit). The first link is for the manual..http://ccm.net/forum/affich-493901-...Page 74 in the manual describes the various options.Be "very aware" that a factory reset will erase "all" your personal files in the process. So first ensure you have copied anything you wouldn't wish to lose to external storage beforehand. Typically to DVD but an external hard drive too is nice(r). Verify the copies are accessible too on at least one other system (if possible) as well as the current one.What OS was there originally?

Hello, this is my first post so I hope I explain this correctly. I bought a new Alienware 15 which came preinstalled with Win 8.1, I updated to W10 and after a lot of updates and messing in W10 I got it to work really well. Over the weekend I took the most current W10 main update and it screwed my computer up (black screens, for ever boot ups, lost 2nd HDD upon restarts, etc) so I decided to factory restore Win 8.1 and then go back to Win 10 from there. Anyway, after going through the Alienware Respawn program to get back to Win 8.1. Once the restore was complete I started to log in where I received a message that I must be online to log in the first time. After clicking on the network icon in the lower left corner there was no network to show up which means that my network drivers either didn't migrate during the restore or my network card isn't working period. Anyway, is there a method to side step the log in or to update the drivers outside of the system. Otherwise my $2k gaming laptop bought less than a month ago is a 8 pound paper weights.

I suggest you purchase a Genuine Windows 7 CD to go with your Genuine Windows 7 CD Key. Beyond that I am unable to help as this forum does not support cracked/illegal software, while you may have a valid CD key you are still using a cracked version of the operating system.

In Windows by clicking: Start / All Programs / System Recovery / System Recovery.

The recovery will load and display a box with one option:

Non-destructive recovery: this option will restore Windows, supplied applications, and drivers. This option will not destroy your documents or programs. These will be backed up along with the registry. These are restored at the end of the recovery process.

To access the recovery options below that erase all data from the computer, click the Advanced button.

System Recovery - No format: this will reinstall Windows, supplied applications and drivers. It will move your files to a folder called "My old disk structure". Any applications (except those supplied) will need to be reinstalled.

System Recovery - Quick format: this option will erase your hard drive including your personal files. Windows, supplied applications and drivers will be reinstalled.

Select the Non-destructive recovery option and press Next.

You will be informed about System Restore in Windows, click Yes.

The recovery will begin. Once this is complete click Restart.

Hello Everyone:I recently bought a laptop and decided to get my friend to set it up because I was to busy to do it my self. When I got it back I found that he had installed Windows 7 instead and partitioned the hard drive. I did the free upgrade to Windows 10 but now I am wondering if there is anyway to do reset it to factory defaults (with all the preloaded software and such)

A:Factory Reset

Since you did the free upgrade to Win 10 the computer would have been registed with Microsoft, hence just download the OS from Microsoft and the it should activate automatically.Alternatly:Since the computer is loaded with Win 7 which was not shipped with the computer, you need to get a Recovery Disc from HP and run Recovery.:http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07143

A:FACTORY RESET

Well, the system did come with a Recovery option, but since the Windows 10 up grade it probably will not longer function with the F11 key.  The one option is to do a Windows 10 reset or a clean reinstall using the Windows 10 Download tool

If warranty is already expired, why do you need a factory recovery ? ( when everybody usually want a clean install ). I am at a loss here.

In a MBR partitioned disk, giving OEM Recovery partition the "Active" mark can be used to kick start the recovery process. However GPT partition scheme changes everything and this old trick won't work anymore. If the installation image inside the "Recovery" partition is in "WIM" format, you may be able to manually restore the OS from it.

I'm hoping for a solution to what has slowly turned into a nightmare, laptop originally came with Windows 7, upgraded to Win 10 online using an outlook.com account as log in verification.

After a 6 week holiday I inadvertently entered the wrong outlook.com password too many times and consequently was locked out of Windows 10. After attempting all recovery options without success I was advised by Microsoft the only option is a factory reset.

Having copies of all files from my hard drive I Googled how to reset Toshiba to factory settings which looked simple enough, holding down Zero while turning on - wait for the beep and follow the instructions, unfortunately after the beep Windows continues to load.

It would appear the factory reset data has been overwritten or is not applicable for Win 10.

Further Googling and the best suggestion I can find is to buy the reset media from Toshiba, unfortunately it seems they only supply that media up to Windows 8.1.

I am at a loss what my next steps should be, it would seem only option is to buy a copy of Win 10 but before I go down that road thought I'd ask if anyone can help?

Thanks in advance

Tony

A:Win 10 Factory Reset

Try holding F12 during power up to show the boot device menu, then select "HDD Recovery".
This should take you to the Win10 Troubleshooting screen. Choose "Reset" or "Refresh".
