Im putting a new hard drive in do i need to install a cd to do it i dont have the originals that came with mine they were stollen, if so where can i get them


Your post is in PC Desktops, it's a Laptop? It's a Dell Vostro 3400? Is the old HDD working? If you install a new primary HDD you will need a Factory System disk to re-install to factory specs OR a Windows Installation Disk. Contact Dell Support with your Make, Model, Serial Number of Computer, if the Factory Recovery Disk is available. Dell Support: http://www.dell.com/us/business/p/vostro-3400/pd You may can use a online service? If your old drive works you can "clone" it to the new HDD, using a software program.

Back up any important files to CD, USB Flash Drive, or External hard disk as they will be lost during this process. Insert the recovery disk and restart the computer. When prompted, press any key to boot from CD, then follow the prompts on the screen.

I want to take my acer aspire back to the factory setting but dont have a cd how do i do it


Acer are cheap and they don't provide you with a factory restore disk. You need to make this factory disk yourself. I know how to do this, but it is to much for me to type and here is a really really good reference site for you to visit to get instruction to make your own factory restore disk. After making that restore disc,  pop the disk into your laptop and turn of your laptop and restart and the factory restore program should start, if it should not start then go into your bios menu and have it boot from your Dvd-Rom and save, after full restoration, make sure you turn your boot priority back to where your Os is being installed, exm hard drive.

I would like to restore my machine to it's factory settings. All software was preloaded 2 years ago and a windows disk was not included with the machine. How can I restore my system back to the factory...


Go to the Acer site and you should be able to find a link to a section that will allow you to purchase a full set of disks to restore it to factory defaults. Be careful buying them off of ebay as most of those are just disks that contain drivers and not windows. The ones from acer should cost around $20. The web page is a little hard to find but it is there. See link below.

How can i set back to factory specs without disk?


You need the discs to do that. Or you could purchase an Operating System disc and reinstall the OS.

I wont to reset my campaq lap top


Do you have the original disks that it came with? If so, follow the restore procedure that came with them, but be sure to back up any important files on to a flash drive or something. If you don't have them, you can use a new copy of windows and reformat / reinstall everything. Just be sure to backup your files as you will be deleting everything off of the hard drive.

Hi,

Are you fimilar with system restore function in Windows. Click start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Go back to a date when the pc was functioning properly, choose date click continue/OK. Sit back and wait until the system recovers. Log in as normal.

I need to restore my computer to factory settings


If your PC is still under factory warranty the manufacterer might do it for you. I did not have the restore disk but eMachines surprised me. by sending me a shipping box and then paying the shipping costs both ways. The PC was restored to factory specs and back to me in 5 to 7 business days.

You will need to include your Windows OS password.

If your PC is out of warranty most manufacterers will sell you a restore disk for about $20 plus
shipping cost.
