Welcome to HP support community.


Reset your computer from the Start screen

  1. From the Start screen, type reset to open the Search charm, and then select Remove everything and reinstall Windows from the search results.

  4. If prompted, insert your Windows 8 installation disc or recovery media.

  5. If your computer has more than one drive installed, you must select whether you want to reset only the drive where Windows is installed, or reset all drives. Make your selection, and then click Next.

  6. When you remove your files, you can also clean the drive so that the files cannot be easily recovered. Select Just remove my files or Fully clean the drive, and then click Next.

  7. On the Ready to reset your PC screen, click Reset.


    Your personal files and settings are destroyed by performing this step. Make sure you have backed up all your important files on another drive before performing a reset. If you need help backing up your files, you might want to contact a professional data recovery service.

  8. Wait while Windows resets your computer. This might take a while, and then your computer restarts.
