I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

hp pavillion laptop 15-p067ca model, purchased year ago, came with windows 8.1, was not updated to windows 10. seems to have a bug: on start up it welcomes me as a user "vladimir" asks for password and then hangs up forever with the white screen and unresponsive. Password  I'm sure is right, because if I type different password, machine comes back with "Incorrect password" message. What do you think is a problem and how to go back to factory settings? I have not made a recovery disc. Any comp supposedly have a recovery partition, and Recovery Manager but how can I do anything if Window does not come up?

Hi,I have a HP Envy 17 laptop, it was bought with Windows 8, I updated it to Windows 10 last year.Due to progressing issues, I factory reset it, taking me back to Windows 8.After the reset (which ran smoothly), it requires me to input a new product key. I was not aware that I'd have to puchase a new one.I've attached a printscreen of the system window which states that my window is not activated.And this below is a screenshot of the details in Windows ActivationWhat can I do now? I cannot get hold of the original product key on the box.Any help will be much appreciated.

A:Windows 8 Activation Failing after Factory Reset

@Maetrix?, welcome to the forum. I don't know why MS is telling you to come to HP.  The Product Key for Win 8 is embedded in the BIOS at the request of MS.  HP does not have the ability to Activate any OS.  Changing the video card shouldn't have anything to do with the problem.  However, who knows what the activation software take into consideration.  I suggest contacting MS again to see if you get a Customer Rep who will help you. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

I forgot my password and now when I turn it on it says enter administrator password or power on password how can I get past this

A:How can I factory reset my HP Envy 17 notebook PC

It sounds like you made the mistake of entering a BIOS admin or power on poassword.  If it does not provide a system lock code after entering the wrong password three times in a row, there isn't much we can do to help you. If you can't get past the power on password, even performing a factory recovery is not a possibility.  Contact HP for warranty service or out of warranty service.

My laptop is infected with a lot of malware, so I figured I'd reset the whole thing by doing a factory reset (also, got the laptop from my dad who has a lot of unessecary things on it). I can't manage to do the factory reset without a Windows 7 disc. When i visit windows' sites i get a message saying i can't download the software because the laptop came with windows pre-installed.I have the lisence key for windows 7 of course. Does anyone know how I can manage to do a factory reset without the disc? I've tried to type F1 while restarting the computer, but all I get is a notification saying that I need the disc.. I'm going crazy!  The same thing happens when I enter the reset menu from the control panel.Would be very happy if someone would be able to help me with this issue.

recently i upgraded my acer laptop to windows 10 .After using for a week and so i starting having problems with it my disk usage started showing 100% although i was not doing any task.
so i decided to switch back to my original windows 7 through acer e-recovery management . Now the issue is that i can not perform factory reset . when ever i click on that i generally get an error that i need to clean all my files from hard disk as it will not perform the task , although i have no files on my laptop as i took a backup of my files and deleted them from the laptop.
I am unable to understand what is the issue

A:How to i reset my laptop to factory setting

The process is different among the different brands and not having an Acer can't advise as to what theirs is. However, if you have nothing on it you want to keep you should be able to continue with a full factory restore, should be a prompt to do so. I've found in a similar situation that having made the discs when prompted was easier than doing it from a backup process.

I've tried to restore my computer to factory settings but at the screen it only gives me the option to restore to a previous backup date - the factory reset option is there but it's not selectable (clickable).
Has this setting been disabled somehow? I'm running windows 7 on an Envy (C0N32PA).

Hello mparker and welcome to Seven Forums.

I believe that in order to access the hidden recovery partition on an HP computer you need to keep clicking one of the function keys (F7, F8, etc on top row of keyboard) as soon as you apply power to the computer. This HP article explains how to perform a system recovery on computers that shipped with Windows 7.

Hello I'm having some major problems with my laptop and other issues after factory reset new on HDD laptop BSOD, I was hoping for some troubleshooting assistance A short history first You can skip BSOD, other issues after factory reset on new laptop HDD down to the bold if you don't think you need any context A few weeks ago I started getting regular BSoD not the one I'm reporting now on my Acer laptop as well as errors when attempting to write to the drive followed by the dreaded 'click of doom' I knew I was dealing with a failing hard drive so I immediately purchased a new one and backed up data manually I also keep a regular backup via Acronis The BSOD, other issues after factory reset on new laptop HDD new hard drive arrived I hooked BSOD, other issues after factory reset on new laptop HDD it in and attempted to restore the full Acronis backup No good backup corrupt Of course I don't have another one that's way too smart for me Fine I think - I'll use Acronis' drive clone to copy everything over directly since the failing hard drive still has some spins left That didn't work either as Acronis gets totally jacked up when it has to talk to bad sectors At this point I switched to Clonezilla which 'worked' but did what I found out over another eight hours of troubleshooting was nearly irreparable damage to the MBR or file structure on the fresh drive The only thing I could do with the new drive at this point was run Acer's factory reset from the recovery partition which somehow arrived intact on the new drive So I did that and miraculously it worked I began transferring files back over from my manual backup and reinstalling programs starting with Steam and World of Warcraft which were what originally crashed and gave me some early warning of the impending HDD failure So I fire up WoW Bam blue screen within two minutes Different one than I had before and the logs don't show any signs of HDD failure redux In fact further testing and delving leads me to believe I'm dealing with either a driver problem or a VBIOS problem my system specs are way way good enough to run WoW at high settings and get - fps but I was getting around the next time I tried opening it I haven't gotten any other BSoD since the first one but I've noticed visual aberrations when viewing multimedia surfing or doing homework that weren't present before I tried updating my ATI driver but the little utility they make you run before you can even download the driver tells me I don't have a compatible card I do I'm out of my depth at this point and I'm hoping a trained eye can look at the logs attached and tell me what I should try next Thanks so much for any help you can provide

As I know during a recovery procedure you laptop will restart for many times. So, don't interrupt it and wait. If it still restarts for a long time, you can restore factory settings using recovery media you have made

So my phone Lumia was hit with the restart bug I was left with no option but to do a factory reset I went through the proper procedures I somehow managed to verify that my phone had created a backup of my apps and settings I removed the SD card just in case Etc etc However after the reset upon attempting to download my backups I was met with several problems The first OneDrive apparently has no backup for me to access I've tried numerous times but there seems to be no backups to be had The second several apps I had had installed are seemingly no longer available on the Windows store So what am I to glean from all this Because of some poorly coded bull leading to an OS or firmware bug bug hard restart and after defaults. Issues to factory reset I've lost a hefty chunk of personal data and cherished applications despite using MS's 'backup' feature if this sounds hostile it's likely because it is I'm very agitated by this I still have the SD card unformatted However there seems to be no meaningful way for me to recover what Issues after restart bug and hard reset to factory defaults. is on it At least not in any way that my phone will recognize Any advice anyone can give besides dropping this piece of junk and getting an Android

Factory Restore is to the state it was when you first got it.
You will then need to run 4 years worth of Windows Updates bit by bit - don't be tempted to allow Windows to update them all in one go. Choose them in block of say 10, chronologically, restarting the system carefully each time.

I have a very old HP pavilion tx1210 that is not working very well and is loaded with viruses. I want to give it one more chance and try to take it back to scratch. I remember once when it was under warranty an HP service person told me to enter a word or two to completely erase the HDD but keep the operating system. I didn't keep that record and am wondering if anyone knows what that is or is there an eary method of erasing the computer while keeping the operating system. I have the disc for the operating system but just thought it would be easier to keep that on the computer.

The popup covers it and shades it out and cannot be accessed.  There is an X on the malware screen but it returns immediately. The screen has a telephone number to call and a voice message stating it has been infected and to call the number. We DID NOT call.   Can some kind reader help if there are other options to access the Google Chrome Reset via 'The Cloud'. Anybody? Thanks.

Hello,I was recently given a pavillion dv9821ea laptop which was in bad shape after being infected with a virus. I eventually had to replace the hard drive and at the same time I upgraded the operating system to windows 7 PRO 64bit. I was unable to save nothing from the origonal hard drive, no drivers, HP software etc and since I installed Windows 7, the laptop seems to have several problems including not downloading Windows updates. I connect it to the HP assistant, but this recognises the laptop and only gives me the choice of Windows Vista as the operating system for which to support drivers etc. I wonder if you could help me by letting me know if there is anywhere I can download Windows 7 pro 64bit drivers for this laptop? my wife and I are both disabled and it would make a great difference to me if I could have full use of this laptop. Regards. Gerald

Hi, Gerald: HP did not support that model for W7, and you should be able to use the Vista drivers from the dv9821ea support page except the BIOS and firmware files. Additionally, you can read this helpful dv9000 W7 upgrade guide for some tips on getting W7 to work just fine on that model.

HP Support Assistant reports that there is a software update available to download.  Click yellow triangle, get to products, shows a software download available, but does not specify what the download is.
Click on Message / update.  Four segment square icon starts rotating through the segments.  Runs and runs and runs, now more than 2 hours.  Nothing downloads.
This is the third time today I've tried to download the supposed software update.  Same result each time.  Nothing downloads.
Same result each time.
Very frustrating

My brother gave me his old laptop. When I turned it on there was a blue box asking me to 'enter administrator password or power on password.' After three incorrect attempts the screen says 'system disable' key:64233925. The laptop is a few years old so it's out of warranty but I would love to give it to my son as a starter laptop. Can anyone help me?

A:Frozen touchpad and keyboard on HP Pavillion dv6 3225dx Notebook

If you have (and should have) a USB keyboard and mouse connect them and see if they will work.
Since your file system was already corrupted you cloned the bad files to the new drive.
If the USB devices work you should do a Repair Install.
If that doesn't work do this: Using System Recovery, Factory Reset and Minimized Image Recovery Options HP Pavilion dv6-3225dx Entertainment Notebook PC | HP? Support
From this tut:
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

On newer models HP Recovery may offer a Minimized OS Recovery option when booting from F11, which retains only the OS, Recovery Manager, HP Support Asst, and HP Wireless LAN. This is as close to a clean reinstall as you can get without doing one yourself.
● If you clean reinstall only to C and leave all other partitions intact, F11 Recovery key should still work later if you need it.
● You can also Extract HP 3rd Party Software from RecovCD.
● Problems with volume control lighting and HP Quick Launch buttons have been dealt with here where you can also get further support.
