    Try this:
    Reboot
    When the blue HP screen comes up, press F10 (restore)
    Follow the directions

    This is assuming D: is still the restore disk. Also they might have changed the restore key. Look on the bottom of the screen. Should be: ESC-boot menu...F1-setup....F10-restore.

    Note: this will erase EVERYTHING on C:

    Just 1 I think, but a ton of updates. Not to mention all the updates from HP.
