  1. Factory reset not working


    I get to the recovery screen by pressing f11 on boot and start the complete factory reset recommended if you do not keep your laptop. I need to input a key(bitlocker) and confirm i truly want to wipe everything from the laptop then the reset begins and at somepoint early(around 10% done) it just goes back to the recovery screen without warning or error message.

    Im doing this reset because the laptop wont boot anymore the normal hp logo appears with small dots going in a circle then the hp logo dissapears and the smal dot keep going in a circle forever.

    Sorry for formating or grammatical error.

    If any more info is needed just ask and i will answer! Thanks in advance.

    Factory reset not working

    Ive factory reset my computer but I can't use the mouse or the keyboard to select laugage

    Hi,

    A device like your keyboard and mouse is not detected during factory reset.
    To help us determine the appropriate troubleshooting steps
    that can resolve your concern, we would like to ask the following questions:

    • Are you performing a factory reset on a laptop or a desktop?
    • Is this the first time you perform a factory reset on your device?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far to resolve your concern?

    In the meantime, if you're working on a desktop, we suggest that you try to use a PS2 keyboard just to bypass the installation process. Once Windows is up and running, you may now plug your mouse and keyboard to initialize Windows to detect these devices.

    We look forward to your response.
