Restoring HP Pavilion 6300f desktop to factory setting!

Hi,

 

I recently formatted drive c and installed windows 7 on it, but lost the features of multimedia keyboard, that is no volume OSD and no buttons on extreme left and right sides of the keyboard work. I still have the factory image partition which is a drive 'F'. The problem is F11 does not work now. I could not find out a way to restore the factory settings from the available image in drive "F". I'll appreciate any assistance in this regard.

Have you tried installing the KBD driver? Vista drivers usually work in Win 7

Re: Restoring HP Pavilion 6300f desktop to factory setting!

Thanks for your reply. I tried to install it, but in the final message it says that my system does not meet the requirement to update.  It seems this driver is not compatible.

 

I am still looking for a way to restore the factory settings from the image on my system's F drive. F11 does not work after formatting the drive c.
