Boot up with the disc in the cd rom drive.... if it doesn't boot to cd i'll explain that next.... follow the instructions on screen.... if it reboots during setup do not hit any key to start the boot from cd ... be aware there is a difference between system restore and system recovery... the last one usually formats your hard drive so you lose all the data on it.

Forgotten password and backup disk not working so how can i factory reset


That depends. It may or may not be possible. Most PCs today come with no disc media. The user is responsible for making their own recovery disks using an application that the manufacturer provides on the machine. Even then, most manufacturers know that the average user doesn't take the time to read the User's Guide and often will not make the recovery disk(s). There is almost always an extra partition on the hard drive that has the factory-installed image as a backup should you corrupt the original. The procedure(s) to access this and perform the recovery vary by manufacturer and even model, so without that information, we cannot tell you if you have that capability and if so how to access it. If the media you have was supplied with the machine, there may well not be any other means of recovery short of purchasing a new Operating System disk and reinstalling manually.

How to restore factory default


Toshiba laptops from mid-2007 onwards don't have a recovery disc supplied with the laptop. Instead, Toshiba has added a hidden partition on the hard drive which contains the same files as a recovery CD/DVD.
WARNING: All data and added programs will be deleted with this procedure. This procedure puts your laptop back to it's initial "out-of-box" factory settings. Make sure you save any critical data onto another device (CD, Flashdrive, External Harddisk, etc) before performing this procedure.

To restore your laptop to its factory settings using the hidden partition:

  1. Hold down the power button for ten seconds to switch off your machin. Please note that holding down the power button on the machine forces it to switch off. Any unsaved data will be lost.
  2. Press and hold the zero key and at the same time, tap the power button once to power on your notebook
  3. When the machine starts beeping, release the zero key
  4. When prompted by the warning screen, select Yes to continue with the system recovery 5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software and click Next
  5. Select Recover to out-of-box state and click Next again
  6. Click Next to Start the recovery

Samba 1845 won't boot how can I make it do so?


From what I can tell it would be HDD related. Have you test the HDD, is good? Do you have a Recovery disk of your OS? The machine has some miles on it ,right? I would start trying to load the disks (CD) that came with the machine, (I don't know your OS), If you don't have them, you can search for a windows repair disk online.

Restore to factory settings

Restoring your Sony VAIO computer to its original factory settings is a great way to remove old programs and files that are buried within your computer that you no longer need, or to get rid of a virus that you just can't seem to shake.


This process will allow you to start anew with your computer, and can potentially save you from simply throwing the computer away because you don't think it can handle the workload anymore and spending money on a new machine.


Unplug any cables connected to your Sony VAIO machine with the exception of the power cord and monitor.


Click "Start" in the lower left corner of your screen.

Click "Control Panel."


Click "Performance and Maintenance."


Scroll down to the bottom of the Performance and Maintenance screen and click "VAIO" recovery wizard. The VAIO Recovery Wizard dialogue box will appear.


Click "Next."


Select "Proceed with System Recovery" and click "Next."


Select "C Drive Recovery" and click "Next."


Click "Next" to confirm that you want to proceed with the C Drive Recovery.


Click "Finish" to restart your Sony VAIO machine and initiate the recovery procedure.

Upon restarting your computer, the Sony VAIO Recovery Wizard will prepare your hard drive for recovery and then restart your computer again.


The necessary files will be copied to your computer and your hard drive will be recovered.


Click "Finish" when a screen appears telling you that your recovery process is complete.

Your computer will restart.


Click "Next" when you arrive at the Windows setup screen.

Follow the on-screen instructions to setup your version of Windows.


When you have finished setting up Windows, click "Finish."

Your computer will restart.

Upon restart, the Sony VAIO Recovery Wizard will install necessary files on your computer.


Your computer will restart automatically when these files are installed and your Sony VAIO will be restored to its original factory settings.


Hope this helps

Please after changing the battery of my VOLVO v40 1999 wagon car the radio requested code can you help me


This is a anti-theft device built into your radio designed to foil robbers. When the radio looses power, the radio locks up. This makes the radio worthless on the black market. The thieves know this and don't steal it as a result. Your owners manual tells you to clear the code if there will be a power loss (changing the battery). There may not be a recovery procedure.

In the GM (1995) version of this system, there is no recovery (if there were, what would be the point of the system?). I don't know the specifics of the Volvo system. You may want to talk to your dealer before you replace your radio. I am sure you will have to prove ownership of the vehicle.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com this morning.
