Re: how do i reset my pavilion g7 with windows 7 laptop?

Hi,

 

There are Two options to try and reinstall Windows - the 2nd is the easiest, but you may want to try the 1st to see if it will save you having to order a replacement set of discs - make sure to back-up any important files first.

 

1.  If you can still boot in to Windows, hold down the Windows Key and press R.  Into the Run Box type compmgmt.msc and hit enter.  Click Disk Management in the left pane and when the partitions have loaded, right click the Recovery Partition and mark it as 'Active'.  Close all open windows and then restart - if this has worked, the notebook will boot from the Recovery Partition upon restart.

            

2.  You can order a replacement set of Recovery Discs using the link below.

If you have any problem with this link, order them directly from HP.

 

If you live in the US, contact HP Here.

 

If you are in another part of the world, start Here.



Regards,

If you do not have a Recovery partition you will need to call HP to order Recovery Discs.
