HP and Compaq have this setup

Restore your computer without disks

To repair or restore from the hard drive, restart the computer and press F11 when prompted.

To burn your own set of recovery disks, select Start > All Programs > System Recovery > PC Recovery Disk Creator

That's all there is to it.


This also works to make recovery disks for Compaq.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
