Re: REFORMAT COMPUTER

Hi,

Your machine should have a Recovery partition if you are using the original hard drive and haven't deleted it. Make sure backing up all of your files before restoring the PC/laptop to factory state. Otherwise please post back.

To set your PC/laptop to factory state, restart the PC/laptop. At the HP welcome screen tap the F11 key to launch the recovery process. Follow the instructions provided on the screen.

Good luck,

BH

Re: REFORMAT COMPUTER

Hi Felder:

 

 

Thank you for your inquiry.

For me to assist you better I will require some additional information.

What model computer do you have?

What operating system are you running.

Do you have a set or restore disks made?
