When you have an issue or problem with your Compaq 6910P, it can help to restore the system to the original settings of an earlier date. By enabling the restore and creating a restore point, you can reset the operating system and allow it to operate as it did before the issue started. Your personal data files will not get deleted, but you will need to reinstall and update your software and drivers. Reconnecting your Internet connection is also needed. With a few steps, you can have your computer running and back to its old self.

Click "Finish" when the computer asks you to confirm the restore point. Click "Yes" to perform the system restore. This operation must not be interrupted.
