How may I reset my BIOS TO factory setting on HP15



Sorry, the tool has no option to reset BIOS to Factory Settings. Please apply current BIOS to your machine then do a clean install Windows 10.


Since your machine previously ran Windows 10, you can do a clean install W10 for free by using the media creation tool at the link below.

The tool will allow you to make a bootable installation media (USB/DVD) and you can use installation media to install.

During the installation process if you are asked to enter a product key, check the 'Skip' box and W10 will install and then automatically activate once you are connected to the internet using the key embedded in BIOS of your machine.

Then you can install the drivers and available software you need from your PC's support page. Normally few Windows 10 updates can install nearly all drivers for you.


Note: If you wish to keep user files and applications/programs, you need to select this option from the beginning.
