Re: How do I RESTORE my system to the original factory settings

Immediately after powering on the laptop start tapping the F11 key to boot into Recovery.

Re: How do I RESTORE my system to the original factory settings

I have a g60-230US and I have a virus that isn't allowing windows to start. It will go to "Starting Windows" then it will just go black, then go back to "Starting Windows" all over again. I can go to the startup menu, but I try and hit system recovery and it won't allow me to do that either. What should I do? Tap F11 or what? Please help ASAP.

I would like to restore my computer but can not do the F11 nor do I have the Recovery Manager and I have tried going into my Computer Managment and I do not have a recovery partion.

Re: How do I RESTORE my system to the original factory settings

Contact HP to order Recovery Disks.Usually less than $20. You will need the full model number and PN from the Service Tag attached to bottom of laptop to order correct set.(dv6000 is the series)

Re: How do I RESTORE my system to the original factory settings

Hi, 

 

The recovery disc can be order in worldwide? 

 

Cause I bought the product in Malaysia but now currently in Australia. So if I contact and order from HP Australia, is that okay?

Re: How do I RESTORE my system to the original factory settings

Does HP Recovery format only system disk (C: ) , or it formats all the disks? 

I don't really want to lose evrything, but it says that it returns everything to original state, which probably means clean PC.

Re: How do I RESTORE my system to the original factory settings

I read the info on your link above and the info you provided here.

 

When my HP Pavilion (dv6000, s/n:  CNF71202TJ, p/n: RV216&A#ABA) restarts, it does not reopen the recovery manager.  If I repeat the process, I end up in the same place after restarting in an infinite "do" loop.  Any ideas on how to break the cycle?
