How do i restore a inspiron b130 to factory settings


Hello,

You may follow the below steps to perform a full factory restore:

Use an external hard drive to back up any important files on the computer as all of the data on the computer's hard drive will be erased during the restore process. Connect the hard drive to the computer via the USB cable and transfer any valuable photos, music, programs or documents into the hard drive's folder. Once all the files are copied into the folder, right-click on the hard drive's folder icon and choose "Eject."
  • Remove any other unnecessary hardware device cables connected to the computer as they maybe damaged when the computer is restored. Disconnect any scanners, USB drives, MP3 players, smart phones and the external hard drive.
  • Close any programs running on the computer and turn off the computer. Turn the power back on and hold down the "F8" key when the Dell logo appears on the screen to open the "Advanced Boot Options" screen. Make sure to complete this step before Windows loads.
  • Click on the "Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options" icon. Select the language settings for the computer and click "Next." Check the box for "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition" and click on the "Next" button to begin the restore process. The computer will then erase the hard drive and restore the computer to the original factory condition. Press "Finish" to restart the computer with the factory settings restored.

  • Hope this helps..

    Factory restore


    Dell Dimension computers have a built-in PC restore system that allows you to quickly restore the PC to its original factory settings.
    The PC restore is located in a hidden partition of the PC's hard drive and contains a copy of the computer's original factory installed software.
    There are two different ways to restore the Dimension's settings depending on which operating system your computer is running.

    Windows XP

    Disconnect all peripheral equipment that is attached to your computer such as printer, scanner, external hard drive and memory sticks.
    Restart the computer.
    After the Dell screen appears on the monitor, hold down the "Ctrl" key and press the "F11" key.
    If the Windows XP screen appears before you can finish this step, wait for the computer to finish rebooting and restart the computer again.


    Highlight "Restore" in the Dell PC Restore window by using the tab button.
    Hit "Enter."


    Highlight "Confirm" in the restore warning box by using the tab button.
    Hit "Enter."
    This will start the system restore process.
    Do not attempt to turn off the computer during this process or vital system files may be damages and you will not be able to restart your computer.


    Click "Finish" in the box that notifies you that the restoration has been successful.


    Hit "Enter" to restart the computer.
    The computer has been restored to the original factory settings.

    Windows Vista

    Disconnect all peripheral equipment that is attached to your computer such as printer, scanner, external hard drive and memory sticks.



    Restart the computer.
    After the Dell screen appears on the monitor, press the "F8" key.
    If the Windows Vista screen appears before you can finish this step, wait for the computer to finish rebooting and restart the computer again.


    Highlight "Repair Your Computer" by using the down arrow key in the Advanced Boot window.
    Hit the "Enter" key.


    Click "Next" after selecting a language. Log into the computer as an administrator.
    "OK." Choose "Dell Factory Restore."
    Click "Next."


    Check "Yes" next to the reformat the hard drive and restore factory settings option.
    Click "Next" to start the restoration process.
    Do not attempt to turn off the computer during this process or vital system files may be damages and you will not be able to restart your computer.


    Click "Finish" in the box that notifies you that the restoration has been successful.
    The computer will automatically restart itself to its original factory settings.

    My ascer want restore factory restore


    You may need to restore your Acer computer to its factory defaults if a virus damages operating files or if the system begins acting erratically for unknown reasons.


    Restoring an Acer to factory defaults returns the computer to its original state when first purchased.



    Click on the Start menu.

    Then, select all programs, Acer Empowering Technology and Acer eRecovery Management.


    If this is the first time you have opened the program it will prompt you to set up a password and create a backup CD.


    Click the Restore button and select the option that reads "Restore system to factory defaults".


    Wait for the computer to finish the restore process and reboot.


    Restoring for the Boot Screen


    If your computer will not boot up properly, you can attempt to reach the restore option by pressing the Alt button and the F10 button at the same time.


    When the eRecovery menu appears, choose "restore system to factory defaults".

    Wait for the recovery process to complete and the computer to restart.


    Hope this helps

    Emachine 3653 factory restore


    You can use the Restore CD that came with the computer. The eMachines restore disk sets your PC back to factory settings with the original operating system and programs that were shipped with the computer. Doing so resolves many problems that can arise from long-term computer use, viruses, or the operating system slowing down.


    1. To do a factory restore insert the restore CD then reboot the computer. When prompted, press any key to boot from the CD.


    2. Select the option to "Reformat the drive to factory settings."

    3. Follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall the operating system and original software that came with your computer.

    4. Once the Restore finishes, you can re-install all the programs that you added to the computer as well as restore your files.


    Reminder: Reformatting your computer erases all of your installed programs, personal documents, pictures and music. If you have the ability to, back up all of your personal data using a removable flash drive, external hard drive or DVDs before doing a Factory Restore.

    Im trying to get my pc to go to its original settings factort restore


    The only way to restore your computer to factory setting with all the software/bloatware as it came with your computer the first day you start it up, you will need the factory restore disk that came with the computer if one is provide, if not usually with e-machine product, which doesn't provide you with a factory restore disk, you will have to create one yourself using a dvd-r. Usually you will have to go the the emachine recovery/back up management option in your menu programs and use that program to make the factory restore disk, after making that disc, you will need to insert the disc, and shuit down the computer and restart it. It will prompt you to follow direction once the factory restore disk is boot up. Follow the directions and you should be good to go. If there isn't a recovery managment program or a factory restore disk provided, you will need to contact emachine up.... usually they can send you factory restore disk for a small fee.
