Just reboot your PC by Pressing F8, this will brings you the menu for selection of some choices.

Move up and down arrow key to Load window to Factory setting.

This will load window to new one without any extra Application installed.

It should have come with a restore CD or DVD. Boot to it and follow the instructions. Keep in mind that you will lose all the information you have saved on the computer.

My pc runs fine in safe mode but freezes in normal mode why?


It is an issue with some 3rd party softwares.
Try doing a complete system recovery after backing up the datas.
For doing this, power on the netbook and keep tapping Alt+F10.
That will take u in to the recovery mode.
Select complete system recovery.
This process will take around 30 to 45 min and make sure u plug in the AC adapter.

Just formated my computer and was all gud untill it asked for the product key. i tried the one on my pc but it didnt work. whould like to get some keys that work plz


the one on your pc should be a microsoft coa therefore it should work make sure everything you type in is done correctly with the space - between the first set of numbers if you cant get your keyboard to work try blowing out all of the dust from your keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.

dust causes static which causes lots of problems with a computer and its parts

hope this helps

Hi there .I would like to help my friend use the recovery partition on her compaq presario c700 laptop to either use her recovery dvds or simply to reformat(restore the computer to original factory...


The recovery partition is usually hidden and cannot be seen in the Windows operating system with out adjustments to the way the files are displayed.

Most likely they are present and you can use the following methods to access the HP Recovery Manager utility.

PLEASE NOTE: Using the recovery utility will result in a complete loss of data. Please backup any data you wish to preserve before running the HP Recovery Manager as all data such as photos, documents, music and favorites will be completely erased after the recovery is complete.

There are 3 ways to recover an HP/Compaq PC using the HP Recovery Manager.

Method 1 involves booting into the Windows Operating System, and starting the Recovery Manager from the HP utilities.

Method 2 involves pressing the "F11" key during initial startup to access the Recovery Manager from the recovery partition.

Method 3 involves using personalized recovery disks created by the user when the machine was new or a replacement set of recovery disk obtained form HP.

Follow the on screen prompts to complete the process. As the machine is has been set back to how it was from the factory, make sure to apply all Windows updates as there will be approximately 3 years worth, including 2 service packs, many critical updates and driver updates.

Need to reload windows xp on Emachines PC


Yes all you have to do is.........

Turn off the Computer
Turn back on and Press F11 repeatedly when the message "Press F11 to start recovery" is displayed.
The recovery will load and display a menu of options:

Full System Restore (with Backup): This options will move all Hard Disk contents to the "c:\My Backup" directory and install a new copy of Windows. This option preserves your existing data files, however all applications and settings will need to be reinstalled. This option requires 4GB of free Hard Disk space for the new OS.

Alway suggest backing up your data before you do any recovery

Hi,

For doing a system recovery on E-machine you have to press F11 number of times at the very first boot screen then follow the procedure, and it will restore your computer back to the factory settings.
This option is available in new computers only. (2-3 years old)

Sytem recovery not fully completed


Do you have the OEM Windows CD with Key Code numbers? If yes and there is nothing on the hard drive you want to save you could try a clean install. Go to set-up and make CD-ROM drive the first boot device and install a new OS. Sometimes with Windows this is the easiest thing to do. I see this recovery/restore stuff leaves a lot to be desired. In other words, it doesn't seem to work half the time.

To make recovery partition for vista


If that's a brand new model damroo, the recovery cd should be a software that you can click on the desktop, it should say something like HP PC System Recovery or something similar. For a complete guide, try checking this out. It should be similar in making recovery cd on XP/Vista.

Hope this helps.

Have you upgraded your system in anyway since first purchasing it? I had this same problem after formatting because I had installed a new graphics card and more RAM on my compaq machine. All I had to do was remove the additions before reformatting.
