  1. what settings do you want back to default?
  2. Your PC should have come with a disk set, if not there could be a hidden partition to restore, when you turn on the PC it will give you an option to hit a key to start the process. If don't have either one, contact HP, they can send you a restore disk, for some cost to you however.
  3. Like the post above says, your machine should come with a restoration disk. You could also try and do a system restore to as close as you can do the original purchase date of your computer.

  4. If using the recovery partion, hit F11 when you see the HP logo.

  5. Hi i'm having the same issue, i have Hp Pavillion dv6700 which is currently out of warenty. It came with Vista, i installed the trial win 7 and now it's done and i want to get back to vista, but the F11 doesnt do anything when i start it up at HP logo screen. Also, the system restore from windows only has like 3 entries that are within the last month. Is there any other way to do this? i cant even contact HP cause my laptop is not in warrenty and i feel like i really shouldn't have to pay for vista again, considering it came with my computer. Any help will be super apreciated
