How do I reset a Dell Laptop Inspiron M731R

If at all possible, a whole new fresh start means, "Reformat".

Backup if at all possible and then go ahead & follow the steps to Reformat.

Note:.... Reformat will erase everything and you will have a laptop, like when you first bought it.

Good Luck

Phone is frozen on startup black screen and vibrates every 10 seconds

My son and I both have the first galaxy S phones, love them. Yesterday his went black, just the 4 buttons on bottom lit up and it would vibrate. No one was able to help us so we bought a prepaid phone as a temp fix. I tried everything even the holding of the volume and power button to hard factory reset..would NEVER get to right selection before it went wonky.

Well this morning I thought that something might be up with the power on I:
1. removed the back and the battery from the unit.
2.very carefully removed the 7 screws.
3. VERY GENTLY pried the screen from the back.
4. Very gently opened up and used a can of air to flush out the pocket fuzzies. the front nevery did come completely off, just the side with the power button.
5. the power button fell out/off and I gently replaced everything.
6.replaced the battery and did a hard reset.
7. Works perfectly now.

Funny thing though, last night while my son's phone was acting up, so was mine, and I had to do a hard factory reset on mine also. It was vibrating at strange times, and would either freeze of get loggy between screens. Fortunately I backed up all of my contacts with my email account.

BTW I am a 49 year old mom, if I can do this anyone can.

I recently bought a Freecom 1TB hard drive. It

Is this a SATA drive and what operating system is loaded on it? .
you may have to insert the installation disk to reset the password.
There is a Linux program on the internet to reset the password to default but there is no guarantee to this. This is for Windows XP
2. You can also get some one with a Linux box to view and backup your data on another hard drive but the PC will have to be compatible to accommodate the hard drive capacity.
3. Try not entering a password at all when in the password/ user screen "hit enter"

My 4100b is flashing ethernet green and power green that's all.

Hello I have the same modem and it had the same problem where it only lit the Power and the Ethernet LEDS. It is Quite easy to fix. All you have to do is Hard Reset it because soft resetting it wont do.
To hard reset it: 1. Hold the Reset button on the back of the modem for ~10 sec. until it resets itself. 2. >>Before all the LEDS disappear and only show power then Ethernet<< turn it off and unplug all the connections. Leave it unplugged for a few hours just to make sure that it goes back to Factory Default setting.
After that, plug everything in and turn it on.
Now, if it does not change and returns to normal. Press the Reset button while all the LEDS are lit then quickly unplug the 12vdc plug and wait.
If this fails, Search google for forums that mentions this similar modem ad same symptoms and see if they have a solution.
Hope it works, GOOD LUCK!!

Hardware buttons does not work anymore...

My Asus A639 is also frozen on the blue Heart of Technology screen AGAIN. None of the buttons work, hold button is not active, cannot switch it off. The first time it was fixed by Asus under warrantee - took 5 weeks. The freeze might be related to using GPS software Copilot V6 - not certain.

Help please - how do I do a total reset?

NEtgear RP614 cannot connect after a electricity shortage in our home :(

How is it not working? You get limited or no connectivity or it isn't functioning at all. Firstly, let's do a power cycle. Push the reset button for 5 seconds, unplug for 45 seconds, and reset 5 seconds, and unplug for 45 seconds. If that doesn't work try a hard reset. Alright, it's time to do a hard reset, this will rest all your passwords, Take a Pen or a pin, push the pin the the reset hole for 45 seconds, Uplug the modem for 1 minute, reset hole for 30 seconds, unplug for 30 seconds, and it should be hard resetted also power cycle.
