Today, we will be doing a recovery on a HP Mini model 110-3518cl. After plugging in the computer, switch on the power which is on the right side of the computer, hold down or press the ESC key.
You should see the starup Menu
F1 System information
F2 System Diagnostics
F9 Boot Device Options
F10 BIOS Setup
F11 System Recovery
Once you press F11 you should see the Recovery Manager. There you will be given three choices.
The first box gives you the option to choose:
Microsoft System Restore
Minimized image Recovery
2nd box allows you to run a computer checkup
3rd box is for if you wish to back up your files
If you wish to continue click on System Recovery
The next page gives you the option to back any files before restoring the computer. If you wish not to back up your files, click where it says“Recover without backing up your files.”
After making your selected choice, then click NEXT. A warning will prompt you to make sure to disconnect any devices except for the power and the mouse. Click OK.
You will see Welcome to Recovery Manager, click NEXT to begin.
The computer will start the process of restoring the computer to Factory settings. This may take a while, so you might want to go and do something else. This should take around 20 minutes.
After recovery is complete click FINISH. Install any software to protect your computer, I have provided some links to help you with this process.
