Specs: Windows XP
I am trying my hardest to perform a complete destructive system recovery. I have tried the F10 which is what I did with my last computer but it is not working. I don't have an HP tools or such to try and do a destructive that way. I don't know what else to try....I don't have the recovery discs. ANYONE HAVE ANY ANSWERS?

You should have created the disks a LONG time ago. Hopefully you'll still be able to.

After you succeed in performing a factory restore then try to make the restore set so when your hard drive goes out you will have it. If a restore set hasn't been made on that system yet you should still be able to. I think you need to be booted into Windows to do it.

"...which is what I did with my last computer but it is not working...".

Those are two very disparate statements.

1) Was your "last computer" the exact same as this one? No? If not, why would you assume the same procedure&result?

2) What does "not working" mean? Can't you explain how you know that? (hint: error message?).
