Re: Why did my computer crash?
As alluded to by Rick - HP provides at boot a message resembling "Hit F11
for Restoration..." (wording may be differeent but similiar). Keep in mind
that the computer will be restored to the state it was when you purchased
it - Any programs you installed will hve to be installed again.
If you select this option pay attention to the screen images as you may be
offerred the option to restore without loss of data.
If you have a Vista DVD - boot from the DVD and you will have the option to
run "System Restore" or "Startup Repair".
