Customer Question
I have an hp 2002...
I have an hp 2002 laptop that I purposely deleted everything in an attempt to remove windows 10 from it and restore windows 7. now I have a black screen that says there is no o.s. installed. it WAS there but I probably erased it to the blank state it is in now. what needs to be done, i.e. is there a function button other than f11 as it does squat.

Hi Dan, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to answer your question today.

How did you go about removing Windows 10? Did you use the rollback function in Windows 10 or use another method to delete it?

From what you describe, I suspect you completely erased your drive and you will need to reinstall Windows 7 from scratch. Do you have Windows 7 Installation media, such as a DVD?

.

Please respond back so I can help you with the best options for repairing your laptop. It would also help if you can provide me the model of your laptop

Laptop technician: Joe-S, Systems Specialist replied 2 years ago

Based on what you provided, can you verify this is the exact model of your laptop. The specific model number that HP uses may be a variation of what you gave me.

.

If this is accurate, I can provide you an avenue for obtaining installation media.

I think that would be most helpful as connecting remotely is just too costly as I am on a fixed income and could barely afford this call as is. Pop bottles will cover the $20.00 connection but anything else is just not feasible at this junction in my financial life....sorry and thank you
Laptop technician: Joe-S, Systems Specialist replied 2 years ago

If that is the correct model of your laptop, you can obtain replacement media here:

https://restore.solutions/en/hpcompaqpaviliondm42000/#hpcompaqpaviliondm42000win7recoveryiso

Also provided at that location is instruction on how to create a bootable disk to perform a re-installation.

.

Optionally, you can obtain the original installation media from HP. they do however charge a fee for the media:

.

With one of these options, you should be able to restore your laptop as it came new. You will of course need to reinstall all of your applications and updates.
