How to Restore to Factory Default an HP pavilion g6
This tutorial will guide you on how to do a system restore on your HP pavilion g6 computer. Before starting the restore process, make sure you backup your files and documents. Please be patient this process may last 1 to 2 hours to complete, the process may seem like it’s paused or stopped. Do not restart or shutdown during the process!
If the computer don’t boot to Desktop:
1. Restart the Computer. While the computer is booting up Tap Esc Key repeatedly on the keyboard until the recovery menu appears. This will start HP’s PC System Recovery.
Note: You must tap on Esc button before the Windows Logo appears on the screen. If the Windows logo appears then restart the process.

4. From the HP Recovery Manager Window select System Recovery.
5. You’ll be prompted that the system will reboot and enter the recovery environment. Click OK button to continue.
6. Once the system re-start you’ll enter the recovery environment here you’ll be prompted again with the HP Recovery Manager Window.
7. Here select select System Recovery.
8. Because I created a back up previously, I’ll Recover without backing up files. If you didn’t create a back up prior to this then i suggest to back up your files first and click on next.
9. A Recovery Manager pop up will come up telling you that the Hard Drive will reset to factory condition. Click OK.
