    How can I restore my netbook to factory settings

    Asked May 25, 2010, 11:17 AM — 5 Answers
    I have a hp mini and I don't have any cd drive or the back up disk or and kind of disk. My laptop keeps saying that I have no disk space and I try deleting things but it won't let me. What can I do to delete everything but only leave the programs the laptop originally came with?

    HP uses a hidden restore partition.
    This is normally activated during boot up, in this case f10.

    When you boot up hit F10 as you do, normally before the windows splash screen.
    This should activate the recovery options.
