Restoring to Factory Reset

[ Edited ]

I have a HP/Compaq Presario SR1625NX that I would like to restore to Facotry Settings

 

This system did NOT come with ANY CDs or DVDs for restoring.  How can I restore to facotory setting without any such media?

Hi,

 

From the Start Menu, click All Programs and browse down the list until you see one called Recovery Manager, click to open this folder and you should see an application called Recovery Disk creator.  Double click this to start the process of creating your recovery disks.

 

Best wishes,

Hello meyersthe, You should be able to restore the hard drive with the Recovery Restore Utility without the Recovery Restore Disk set. I would make a set of these disk however, as DavidPK suggested, in case the hard drive were to fail, the Recovery Restore from the failed hard drive would not be available if you had to replace the hard drive. You could use the Recovery Restore Disk set to recover if the hard drive needed to be replaced.

 

Here  is a link to the HP site that instructs how to perform a Recovery Restore from the hard drive.  Look under the PC Troubleshooting Guide.

 

Hope this helps.
