Reset my desktop backc to the original settings



Remove any DVDs or CDs from the optical drives and then unplug all peripheral devices except for the keyboard and mouse.

Click the "Windows" button and then type "eMachines recovery management" into the search box. Click on "eMachines recovery management" in the results list and then click the "Restore" tab.
Click "Password Settings" and then type a new password into the text box.
Click "OK" and then click "Restore System to Factory Default".

Type the recovery password into the "Password" text box and then click "OK". Click "Next" To start the recovery process.

Click "Finish" and then wait for your computer to restart.
This procedure could take several minutes. Once your computer has restarted, you'll be prompted to create a new user account, enter the date and time and set up the internet settings.

or if you are running XP


If you set your machine back to eMachines factory settings, it might help you for a short while but if you don't have effective virus protection your problems will return in short order.

You should get rid of this virus with an effective virus remover.

You can run Bitdefender's free online scan which doesn't need to be downloaded http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html

If you know when you got the virus, you can do a system restore to a time before the virus was on your system. This article tells you how to run it from safe mode http://bertk.mvps.org/html/safemode.html

Your best protection in general is a complete internet security suite such as Bitdefender or Norton internet security 2009.

If you need to totally rebuild your system and you don't have a recovery disk, contact eMachines to get one.

You might also try a Windows repair install if you have the operating system disk. Follow the directions here for XP http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepa...

I forgot my owner/user password & cant get into my computer.


if no password recovery disc, stick or note, you may need to take the hard drive out and put it in another computer to backup the data and then reinstall operating system. or perform a factory default restore after backing up data if the data is important.

Need to do a factory reset but have no disc on a zoostorm7910 runing vista home basic also forgoten password



Every manufacture has or uses different Function Key combinations to do a Factory Default Recovery. Also if it didn't come with disks there is normally a program in the menus to create your own set of recovery CDs. This must be done before you ever put anything on the recovery partition d: , if you used d: for anything you need to remove what you put there or the recovery will not function.

Administrative password by pass


Operating system, please? Is this your laptop? Did you set it up? You need to be an administrator to install software. If you set it up you should have created an admin password or left it blank. Try logging in as administrator without a password and then go into user accounts to change your login to have administrator rights.

Cant reboot to factory setting forgot password


When you get the 'acer' screen at startup Hold down ALT and keep pressing F10. You need to be quick, it took several attempts for me.

This takes it back to factory settings, but if you have anything stored on a second hard drive it should remain untouched (back it up to be safe).

If you have an Win XP installation disk simply insert on the drive, turn off and turn on the computer and run the win XP installation.

If you only want to get rid the password go to there:

Have Modem need to reset password


If you don't have any special settings (port forwarding, ect) just set the modem back to factory defaults by go to or look in the back or bottom *depending on the brand of modem* is a tiny hole - you will need a straighted paper clip (or a cake tester) to push and hold **while modem is on and plugged in** for about 30-60 seconds. THat should put the modem back to factory defaults, that will be the factory user name and password that comes with the modem. For example Linksys is always admin (user name) and admin (password).

Hope this helps.
