How do I restore my HP mini 110-1025 DX back to factory settings?

I have tried F10 and I do not see an option to recover. I do not have recovery disks. Can you please help me?

Hi,

 

Try tapping away at f11 as you start up to see if this will launch Recovery Manager.

the F10 key is for entering BIOS. F11 is for the Recovery Manager.

Best regards,

I have tired all of the posts with the f11 and f6 options. There does not seem to be a factory reset option. Suggestions?

Re: How do I restore my HP mini 110-1025 X back to factory settings?

Seems like nobody can answer this question. I have leaned that the HP mini 1025-dx is one of the most difficult machines to return to factory conditions. It doesn't come with a recovery cd (no cd drive) and if your machine is really screwed up, you can't get to the hard drive to use the built in recovery software. What I would like to find,

is an easy to follow, step by step guide (from start to finish) that actually works. Seems impossible to find. Everyone has different ideas and suggestions on what to do, but it seems like most of these people are just throwing out suggestion that don't work. FYI...F10, F11 DO NOT WORK on this machine.

I have managed to install a new copy of XP (with USB CD drive) except I don't know how to install the "accessories" that go with it. For instance, I now have a machine that has XP with no wifi, sound, or correct display. It seems lke all the drivers need to be installed but for some reason HP never included that with the computer. It ridiculous that you need to go through so much trouble to simply get it back to factory conditions...almost makes me think HP planned it like that? Hmmm? Only paid a couple hundred bucks for the machine, I can almost go buy a new one buy the time I buy an external cd drive and restore disk. **bleep**?

Hi,

This is why we always suggest to make recovery flash drive to netbook users.

You may download drivers and software for your specific model from here.

Windows 7 to do a factory restore:

press  F8 as the system begins to boot

select repair my PC

select your language

Logon as a user with admin rights

this launches the HP recovery manager

see this link on how to use recovery manager
