Recovery Manager

Product Name: HP g60
Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista

I want to restore my G60 to factory settings. It came preinstalled with Vista. Not sure if its 32 or 64 bit. 

When I enter the recovery manager, the directions state to make sure the wireless connection is enabled. The computer button is red indicating the wireless connection is turned off. I press it, and nothing happens, it remains red. 

 

I don't think the issue is the internet connection because if I boot up the computer normally I do get an internet connection. 

 

Not sure if I should continue to the next step in the recovery manager or not since I don't appear to have an internet connection in there.

 

Help please. Thank you.

Re: Recovery Manager

I'm not entirely sure why recovery manager would ask for or need a wifi connection, it's completely unnecessary for a recovery to go through

If it will allow you to continue with a system recovery then I wouldn't worry about the wifi, you'll be able to connect it up fine once the recovery is complete
