First, back up all of your files you don't want to lose as a restore back to factory settings will erase everything and reload back to factory specs.
Then reboot the PC and at the beginning of the HP welcome screen, tap the F11 key to launch the recovery manager. Follow the on screen instructions to restore the PC to its out of the box condition.
