Problems with the HP laptop may prompt a user to restore factory settings of the HP laptop computer. This may happen due to several reasons, including virus attacks or errors in the software or hardware configuration. A virus scan or repairing the registry with Reg Clean may not solve the issue. If this is the case, the only solution is to restore factory settings of the HP laptop. The factory settings can be restored using the recovery partition of the HP laptop. Before initiating the procedure all important files and data need to be backed up.
My HP Pavilion DV6700 notebook Laptop with Vista home premium installed is encountering several problems:
It is not loading any files or launching programs; even after I've done a Virus scan and repaired the registry with Reg Cleaner, it still has erratic behavior.
The logical step is to make a system restore (rolling back changes to factory settings).
Please refer to this tutorial (it is valid for most HP laptop models):

- Before restoring factory settings, make a back up of your important files.
- Note that your HP Laptop has a recovery partition, make sure that no changes have been made to the folders or files it contains.
- Upon creating your recovery disks, store them properly as they can be very useful in these types of situations.
