I've been trying to reset my computer to original factory settings, but I do not own a vista disc nor do I have any intent or money to buy it... If I could get a step by step on how to do it without a disc, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Hi ErickRendon, Posted Image
Recovering to original factory settings will completely erase all DATA except what HP had installed. So you need to backup any personal files Any additional programs will need to be re installed.

Please read page 8. > https://docs.google....l/c01662115.pdf
