How to recover my netbook to factory condition?
Question by Nguyen Huy Anh /

I have a HP Mini 110-1116TU with Windows 7 Starter. Recently, my computer runs very slowly; I decided to recover it to original condition to solve the problem. However, when I use the built-in Recovery Manager, the computer says “Windows failed to boot. A recent hardware or software change maybe the cause…”

It is still able to boot into Windows, but cannot recover itself to original condition. Last time I was still able to recover it. Can anyone give me a solution? Thanks!

      Pirated copy is not recommended and sometime is not well Reassembled so will do some problems.

The Recovery Manager can be launched during the startup process by following the steps below.Press the Power button to start the PC, and then press the f11 key when the standard BIOS prompts are displayed on the black screen.NOTE: Pressing the f11 key during startup on a computer with an HP factory image will start the system recovery process even if the prompt is not displayed.If the HP Recovery Manager can access the recovery partition on the hard drive, a prompt to backup the user files before beginning the recovery is displayed. Follow any on-screen instructions.If the HP Recovery Manager cannot access the hard drive to fix any system errors, you will need to use the personalized recovery disc that you created to recover the hard drive to its original condition.If you have not created the personalized recovery disc, or the discs are corrupted, you can order a replacement recovery disc from HP.When the Recovery Manager starts, follow the step-by-step system recovery instructions shown above.Resolving a common recovery issue.If the Recovery Manager cannot be launched from either the desktop, or by pressing the f11 key on startup, you can use the recovery disc to restore the computer to the original operating condition in Windows 7.
