HP OS/Software :: Dv6 Pavilion 2009 Model-Factory System Restore
Jul 21, 2014
I have done a factory system restore on my HP Dv6 computer and everything went well. However, I am unable to get it to load the latest version of Internet exploer 11. The error I get is that "Windows can not load this version to your computer as your windows version is not compatable." How do I go about uploading the latest Windows drivers, and browsers.
I am planning to restore my laptop to its factory default because of some problems like the "Windows Update" window is all grayed out. I tried finding solutions in the net but it doesn't solve the problem so maybe system restore may do it but inst going to remove all the programs, like MS Office? Are the files saved in drive D also be removed? My laptop has MS Office already when my mother bought it. I have Acer Aspire 5730z.
I have Dell XPS m1330, and I'm having problem to perform factory restore. At the moment I have windows server 2008 installed for testing purpose. When I tried to perform factory restore by running D:ToolsPCRestore.exe on the recovery partition, it fails when reformatting the harddrive (see screenshot below)
I then tried the other method by rebooting, and pressing F8 when dell logo appears. However I couldn't find a "System repair" menu in there.
Is there any other method I can try to perform factory restore?
I had a hard disk fail and had to reinstall Windows 7 on a new disk, but I could not read the COA. I ordered the recovery disks and now have a slight problem. When I try and boot to the System Disk 1 I get a no bootable media on disk message. I installed Windows 7 from a DVD I have for another computer and it works fine, but I can not validate Windows. How can I make the laptop run System Disk 1?
I am having trouble restoring my computer to factory settings. Just to preface this, everytime i restart my HP Pavillion dv6 laptop, it freezes on the HP logo on the boot up. This freezing only occurs when i restart, if i manually shut it down and turn it on the boot up progresses normally.
So i have tried to restore my computer to factory settings by using the recover manager and the recovery manager requires the laptop to be restarted. However, the laptop freezes on the restart so i have to shut down the laptop manually and turn it back on. This interferes with the recovery manager and i get an error that recovery manager was not properly able to restore my computer.
I have also tried to press F10 on the boot up to enter restore mode. However, when i hit f10 my screen goes completely black. The fan and the laptop are running but the screen goes blank. How i can restore my laptop.
Pavilion G6-SS40SA running Windows 8. I am working on this computer for a friend. Somehow, he managed to get an app on there which ran at startup and resulted in it slowing down internet access to a crawl as well as making the machine virtually unusable . In an effort to get rid of it, he attempted running restore. However, neither destructive or non-destructive options would work. He was getting error messages - firstly 'Unable to reset your PC. A required drive partition is missing', followed by 'The drive where Windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again'. I managed to locate the program that was causing the problem, and uninstalled it. He asked me to reset the computer to factory state, but unfortunately, this will not work - it starts up, warns that all data will be lost and I confirm that I want to proceed. It then appears to start the process, but almost immediately ends shows a message saying that no changes have been made. Where do I go from here?
I have a Pavilion dv7-1103ea laptop which I need to restore to factory settings. I created a recovery disk from the system but it has become corrupted. I gave my laptop in for repairs to a local repair shop. My laptop is now working but it is not in the same format as when I purchased it. Is there any way of restoring the laptop to its original format?
I am going to buying one of these in Canada and will take the basic 2.8ghz model with no upgrades. I would however like to get 8gb of ram because I will be doing lots of multi-tasking and some 3d work in windows. Obviously I will not pay apple's crazy prices. I know you can buy "generic" ram for the laptop and was wondering if you know what ram I can use and if you know of any good deals? If I sell the mac ram and only user "generic" ram will my warranty be voided?
I lost the restore partition on the original SSD that my Yoga 13 shipped with. Is there a collection of drivers and whatnot that would allow me to restore it to factory defaults on my own with a fresh windows installation? I have the win8 key from the BIOS but don't want to lose out on all the required drivers if I were to just reinstall windows myself.
After upgrade to Window 8.1 PRO I seeC: 932 GBD: 28 GB -listed as recovery. I want to save system image backup Currently to create system image backup I have only option to create image on external drive or on D:
1. Is possible without reinstalling windows create new partion E: in order backup system images to it? If yes how create new partition in win.8.1?

3. If for some reasons I want to reinstall OS from set of recovery DVD(s) to factory setting what is going to happen with partion E:
I am trying to restore my laptop (studio xps 16) to factory settings using the recovery image. If I look in my computer, i can see C and D drives.
D is my recovery partition with 7gb full out of 10gb. This is good and dandy except when i open the D drive, there is one folder that says RECOVERY that is empty. Why is it empty when there are 7gb's of files in there? I already have hidden files shown
recently got hit with a bunch of trojans when using Internet Explorer. I managed to clean them off or so I thought. Periodically, when I open Internet Explorer my virus scanner detects a trojan.
Since the original trojan screwed up my computer to a degree I had decided to reload my operating system anyway.
If I hit F8 at boot and do a factory restore will this reload the disk to the state it was in when I originally received it? Will this also get rid of these viruses that seem to still be plaguing my system?

I would like to restore my XPS M1530 to factory defaults. I saw on the recovery drive a file called Factory.wim Can I use that file to restore factory defaults? I would like to format the drive and start from new again if possible. Do I need the disks that were sent to me with the laptop or is all of the info on the recovery partition?
I got rid of multiple malware problems, but I still don't have sound when going to youtube e.g., as well as can't install anything. Therefore I think the best thing to do is to reset the computer to factory settings.
I was trying to do a Factory Recovery in my Acer Aspire 5610z using eRecovery. Everything was fine until the "Acer Launch" window appeared.
Now it stuck at "Process 1/2","Install eRecovery solution", "Please wait"
There is another window behind it but I am unable to view it, this is going on for more than 2 hrs and I would very much appreciate your help to acomplish this recovery. the axer lauch window couldn't be moved.
About a week ago, some serious problems happened to my TravelMate 3280 to the point that booting in safe mode doesn't even work. I couldn't access the eRecovery Management either and didn't any recovery DVD.
So finally, I reinstalled windows XP SP3 from scratch. As a result, the computer didn't have Acer eRecovery Management installed. I still prefer the original factory settings though. So I browsed around online forums and found a thread by Pupples at Install Factory default, eRecovery
I did what Pupples suggested, managed to restore the alt+F10 function, and entered the Acer Recovery Management during start-up. Then, I chose the Restore Factory Settings option.
The restoration process began smoothly until about 50-60% progress when an error message occured. It says:
Fails in creating or opening a file C:preload.tag D:preload.tag X:preload.tag
After those messages, the computer booted again from the beginning and then entered a black screen with a writing on the top of the screen. The writing:
NTLDR is missing. Press any key to continue.
I pressed any key, but the same NTLDR message kept on re-appearing.
Does this have anything to do with the FAT32 or NTFSthing?
Are there any ways to restore my TravelMate 3280's factory settings?
We have a Dell E6330 that is running Windows 7 Professional on it. we need to set this Dell back to factory defualts but do not see an option to do so. I know that it does have a recovery partition but I do not see a way to access it.
I'm trying to factory restore my HP Compaq 6510b with Vista. I've not got a recovery disc & laptop didn't come with 1 either. F11 option doesn't work however F8 allows me to access the Advanced Boot Options however there is no repair your computer or system recovery option on the menu.Also there is no recovery manager when searching at the start menu.System restore option doesn't seem to be much supportive as the date available only seems to be in the last few days.Am I wasting my time trying to factory restore or is it time to finally upgrade my once trusty & reliable laptop?
