Read thru the topics. If that does not work, look under "see also"
I assume that the recovery disks are gone or were not made, so if the Recovery Manager fails, the laptop may be too old to order the set from HP, but try or come back for more help.
Hi, I need some advice.
Due to a long list of reasons I have been told to reformat my pc but I want to give it a go myself.
Someone said that there is a "secret" spot on the hard drive where all of the factory setting and programs will be restored.
How do I do this? I don't have any CD's as the PC was already set up when we got it and due to a break in we lost what originals we had.
I have a HP Compaq Presario C700.. if that makes a difference runnign on Windows xp
