If the recovery partition and original OS are still there, start the PC and at the beginning of the HP welcome screen, tap the F11 key to launch the recovery manager program.
Follow the on screen instructions to recover to factor specs.
Make sure you back up any files you don't want to lose as they will be wiped along with your current OS installation during the recovery process.
