CHoose which OS you want to use...

Boot from that OS install CD, choose setup, delete any partition on disk before installing.......

thats about it...

remember to download any pertinant drivers from the manufacturer's website and burn them to disk ( or save to a memory stick) before doing this.

Hi i need to restore my Phillips iqor computer to factory settings as i am getting rid if it and don't want to leave my personal information on it

You don't have to go thru all that trouble to get rid of your personal information. First just create a new user account with administrative rights that the person who is getting your computer will use. After you create the new user account reboot the computer and log on with the new account you created. Then Delete your old user account. It will delete all your documents, music, pictures, videos.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts then create the new user account with Administrative Rights (not limited).

Reboot and and log on with the user account you just created.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Account and select the account you want to delete and Delete it. When asked about files to save, you want to delete everything associated with the account you are deleting.

If you have more than one user account you want to delete, do the same thing for it.

Try reboot the system, while booting press F8, then go to safe mode. Then try to repair it. If doesn't work, you need to reinstall the system.

I have a gateway labtop an I lost the Reboot CD

Hello, You would need to contact Gateway/eMachines they are now the same company, and tell them you need a new Restore CD, They will send you one for 20.00. However i THINK on most computers there is a way to create the CD strait form your computer. I have a Gateway, go to Start> All Programs> System Recovery> Create my CD's

Constantly reboots itself

The Gateway GT5220 has an AMD Athlon 64 processor. It has been documented that Windows XP SP3 doesn't play well with some AMD CPUs. I'm pretty sure this is one of them. I would suggest attempting a system recovery using a restore point on a date BEFORE you installed SP3. If that doesn't work, you might consider recovery using the original Gateway Restore CD. It will likely wipe the system, but that might be the only choice.

I would NOT start with the total reload option. We have a couple others before you get there, so try the restore point and then let me know the results. We'll go from there...

The key as I read it:: photo downloaded!!
Get yourself a bootable virus scanning program , and scan away!
goto windows update and acquire the latest updates from them.
did you check the memory sticks? Memory chips heats up and cause problems.Scandisk & defrag h/d?
