    I have an HP Pavilion laptop that is running Windows 8. I am going to give it to a friend. How do I format the laptop to make it as new?

    The precise method varies a little from one device to another, but VW Maverick's guide should see you through it:

    If it's the sort of tablet that allows SMS, Paul627g's guide will also help:

    There should be a setting in the control panel for formatting the hard drive partition or some easy help if you look. To be honest I am not near a pc right now and it's been a long while. There should be a way to factory reset without losing Windows.
