Please see the appropriate link for your factory operating system below; 

Creating the Recovery Disc Set (Windows XP)

Creating the Recovery Disc Set (Windows Vista)

Creating the Recovery Disc Set (Windows Windows 7)

 

Please see this HP support document entitled "Using System Recovery, Factory Reset and Minimized Image Recovery Options" for instructions on how to start the Recovery process from within Windows, boot screen, or recovery discs.

 

Please send KUDOs

Hi sumed,

 

I could ask you a bunch of questions about what operating system you're using, but the fastest solution might be to send you to the Internet. Search for "restore computer without disk." There are a ton of options there. One you might like is:

 

How to Restore to Factory Settings Without CD: http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/199423-how-to-restore-to-factory-settings-without-cd/

 

Good luck!
