Stream 14 factory reset?

Q: Stream 14 factory reset?

Hello,I have HP Stream 14-ax003nc laptop. Friend jokingly started it in SysPrep and the laptop now won't boot (as HP laptops don't support SysPrep mode). It usually can be undone by doing the factory reset. Whenever I try to do that, it just fails immediately with no error message. It just says "We have failed to do factory reset." What shoul I do? Thanks

Preferred Solution: Stream 14 factory reset?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

At some point in my owning this product (in the last 4-5 months), I had received a low disk space warning, so I started to uninstall programs that I thought I didn't need. I may have removed something that was necessary for another program to use, but I don't know what that might have been. All the programs I was removing were pre-installed on my notebook.Is there a way to factory reset my notebook to its original settings before I started uninstalling like crazy? or to see what I might have uninstalled so I can re-install? And even after I removed programs I still get the "Low Disk Space" warning, despite backing up all my personal files to my SD card and cleaning out the "Downloads" folder -- since everything seems to go there, which makes me think this computer NEVER had space to begin with. HELP pLEASE!

My otherhalf has a Stream 11 on windows 10, it all started when the screen would just go black and freeze. The memory had about 500mb left and she said to clear the whole thing and start from scratch. So I tried doing a factory reset, chose not to keep personal files. It got to 62%  and said it had failed, now when I try to start it, it gets to the HP logo and thats as far as it goes. The screen goes off, comes back on, shows the HP logo then goes off again. I've tried the Factory reset, I've tried keeping personal files all to no avail. It came with windows 10 preloaded so I don't have a copy that  I can use. I've been trying to sort this for the last 5 days and I'm currently contemplating putting an angle grinder through. However, I don't think my good lady would appreciate me doing this, so I was wondering if anyone has any other ideas?? All help greatly appreciated

Like others, our Stream hard drive is full and the computer is now nothing more than an expensive paperweight. I was attempting to do a hard reset. However, due to a bad battery, this has been impossible. I turn on the machine and start tapping f11, but a warning about the battery appears and disrupts that making it impossible to get to the proper screen.  If not for the Windows updates eating up the hard drive, it would still work as long as it's plugged in,  bad battery or not.  Is there a way around the stupid message or a way to kill it? I will not be buying another Stream. We've loaded no programs on it. It was just for web browsing and watching Netflix.

So I have the HP Stream Notebook and it's been working all well and fine. However I was going to give the computer to a friend and wanted to perform a reboot so he can receive the laptop all "new" and clean. Also my microsoft email got hacked and I never was able to recover it so being able to log in to the laptop was kind of a no go. However when I tried to perform a reset and wipe all the files the computer said it was unable to. I can't even see the log in option anymore it just displays HP and a black screen. Only thing I could do is turn it on and press F11 to see the troubleshooting menu, but everytime I try to reset it still won't work, it goes up to 37% and then it says it was unsuccessful with rebooting the laptop. I can't return it since there's no warranty but is there any hope for my laptop? This friend really needed it...

I am not sure what recovery program you downloaded, I do not believe the recovery media from HP is available for download?You could also try a fresh install of Windows 10, instructions are here.

Hi,I would perform a clean install of Windows 10. You can get a free copy directly from Microsoft by downloading media creation tool and running. You will need to do this on another computer and choose when you have launched media creation tool " To install on another PC". Create a bootable USB drive with the same edition of Windows 10 already installed on the computer which is not working. You will need 4GB pendrive.  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 You will need to change boot order in Bios and boot the PC from Pendrive and install Windows 10. I always prefer a clean install on my PCs. Windows 10 will automatically activate once installed and connected to internet.  Let me know if you need further help,David

Assuming that Windows 10 was pre-installed on this PC then the Windows Product Key is on a chip on the motherboard, so it will be automatically inserted when you reinstall Windows 10. That purchase to which you linked looks good, or you could download the .iso and create your own bootable install-able DVD or USB flash drive--see Microsoft Software Recovery.

I decided to to a factory reset, as I didn't have anything important on the machine.   I booted the Stream while pushing f11, and initiated a factory reset. However, after hanging on 37% for a while, it gave me the message "There was a problem resetting your PC". Ever since then, the machine will not boot Windows: if I power it on, it goes through a loop where the hp logo will come up, then dissapear to black, come back a few minutes later, etc...  How can I successfully complete this factory reset, or at least get the stream functional again the way it was?Thank you so much for your help!
