    That model number seems to be missing some digits, I’m going to assume you have a recent HP mini running Windows 7.

    Most of these HPs come with a program called HP Recovery Manager that can be used to restore the computer. It’s also accessible if you can’t boot into windows.

    See this page from HP which provides details on how all this works and the different recovery methods for you. You can still use this program even if you haven’t created any restore disks, it will access the hidden restore partition on your harddrive assuming that is available.

    Be sure to read it fully before you attempt any kind of restore.
