Hi,
Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Click on System Restore.....A separate Window appears. Before Restoring to any any particular date, first you have to create an Restore Point. Until unless you create an Restore Point you can not Restore the system. If the System is working properly and everything is installed then you create an Restore point on that date. So that when system fails you can Restore the system to the same date. Thank you....

    Hi,
    Sorry for in-appropriate answer. As of my knowledge in Linux there is no such tool. But you can restore the system settings by writing some simple shell scripts. Please Click on the below link or copy the URL and paste it in your web browser. Follow the steps given in that link. Hopefully it should work.

    How to find factory settings partition


    While many problems can be solved by less drastic measures, Compaq owners sometimes need to restore their computers back to factory new condition.


    If the operating system becomes corrupt, or if the computer is struck with a persistent virus, restoring the PC to its original factory default settings is often the best way to deal with the problem.


    While older Compaqs relied on restore CDs to restore factory settings, newer machines come with a recovery partition built into the unit.


    Shut down the Compaq computer and wait for it to power off.

    Press the "Power" button to restart it.


    Press the "F11" key as soon as you see a black screen.

    This will boot the Compaq into the recovery partition.


    Follow the on-screen instructions to back up any user files before the recovery process begins.

    Click "Next" to start the recovery manager and follow the on-screen instructions.


    Hope this helps.

    Hi trying to restore a compaq pc with the restore disk but it says this is not a compaq pc and won't let me do it? had a virus, friend reloaded windows with his cd because i was traveling and did not have...


    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but your friends install has caused the computer to forget its origin. Try a restore using the internal drive.
    • Turn it off and restart it
    • Tap f10 repeatedly while it boots
    • Choose Factory Restore
    If that doesn't work, you can call Compaq with the serial number and they might have a phone fix. Chances are they will want you to send it to them for a factory restore. (Think $$$)
    • The alternative is to live with your friends install and forgo the Compaq software.

    Restore to factory settings on compaq presario 2100


    Do you have the restore disk that came with the pc? Just remember that restoring the pc to factory settings, will wipe out your hard drive as if it were 'new.' Try to save whatever you can before you perform the restore.
