Restore and recovery

There are several options for recovering your system. Choose the method that best matches your situation 

and level of expertise:

IMPORTANT:

Not all methods are available on all products.

Windows offers several options for restoring from backup, refreshing the computer, and resetting the 

computer to its original state. For more information see the Get started app.

Select the Start button, and then select the Get started app.

If you need to correct a problem with a preinstalled application or driver, use the Reinstall drivers and/or

or driver.

Type recovery in the taskbar search box, select HP Recovery Manager, select Reinstall drivers 

and/or applications, and then follow the on-screen instructions.

If you want to recover the Windows partition to original factory content, you can choose the System 

Recovery option from the HP Recovery partition (select products only) or use the HP Recovery media.
