Make the Recovery discs and use those, or purchase them if you can no longer make them (they're under $30)
F11 at boot may or may not do it also depending on what was done to the machine previously

Great, but remember to make those Recovery discs, you will need them some day in the future and will be very happy to have them.

I see that you are trying to clean the information off of your HP computer. I have some information that may help with your issue.
Here is a link to steps for running a system recovery on the computer. This will set the computer back to the factory state and remove all user information.
