Go to disk management and see if you have a recovery partition. If you do, you should be able to boot into it by pressing the F10 (usually) key at startup. using that recovery partition should restore your computer to the way it was when you received it. you will lose all of your programs and data though.

Hello Kathy, have a look at the info below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.



information   Information

HP Recovery Center

Be advised that this will take the machine back to the point when you first took it of the box.

The "HP Recovery Center" will give you the option to send to backup anything you
don't want to lose, so have backup media available to use if you choose this option.

With the machine off press the power button, as soon as you do that start tapping the F11 key.

It may take several attempts to do this, if the first attempt fails, try again.
That should take you to the HP Recovery Center. When there just follow the prompts.

It is pretty much self explanatory. From the time you boot into F11 (not counting
any backups you choose to make) you should be back on a working desktop in about
30 minutes. After it restarts just follow the prompts again to finish the process.

If your first option is system restore select no, which should take you to system recovery.

You want to try system recovery not system restore, unless you have good restore points!
