Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

Hey you posted this earlier i need help!PLEASE!

I'm not sure I understand your problem.
You want to reset your computer to factory settings? So a clean install of Windows?
If yes, tell me which Operating system you are using: XP, XP Media Center Edition, Vista...
Dell didn't deliver a Windows-disk with your system, because the installation can be done from your hard drive.
Please answer my questions and I'll help you further

Model LFFH17F7HWH. How do I reset the temperature?


Hello friend, thank you for your post!
I understand you would like to reset the temperature on your Frigidaire freezer, LFFH17F7HWH. The best way to reset your freezer is to disconnect power from it for at least ten minutes. The factory recommended temperature for your freezer should be set to 0°F. If you need any additional assistance please feel free to reconnect. Hopefully this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Was givin a used unit and want to reset it to factory default


To reset BIOS to factory default settings, press "F10" during the POST section and then press "F5" to reinstall factory BIOS settings, Save the new settings and reboot.
To recover to a clean install of the Operating System you will need a set of Recovery Disks. If you do not have them, and the machine will load Windows successfully then you should be able to create them from the "HP Backup & Recovery Manager" although whether this will return to factory default or simply create disks for recovery to its current state I am not sure. Alternatively I understand you can get Recovery Disks from HP, although whether still available for this model - I don't know. Hope this helps.

What is the factory ser code?


Hi

You do not say why you want to reset this Router, or give any information about your computer, its Operating System or any problem you might be having with them.

If you look at the back of the Router, you should find a Reset Button or a small Recess that can be pushed in with the tip of a pen. Press and hold this button or the Press Plate in the Recess for a few seconds, then release it to Reset the Router to Factory Settings and the factory-set Username and Password (often both are factory-set to "admin").

On some routers, holding the Reset Button/Press Plate for a longer period (15-20 seconds), can allow the User to change the Router's Username and Password.

I hope this helps.

I have forgotten my d-link security key number. Is there a way that I can find my key number through my computer?


You can reset the router.Here is how!

Step 1: With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back of the unit labeled Reset.

Step 2: Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.

Note: Do not repower unit during this procedure.

Step 3: The unit will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the unit is reset.

Resetting the router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will change all settings back to factory defaults.

Note: The factory defaults username is admin, and there is no password.

A lot of the computers come with the factory default password "admin". You might try this.
If this is a bios level password, you may have to reset the bios on the motherboard. I would recommend you contact customer support.
If this is a Windows password you can get fixes on the Microsoft website.
Hope this helps.
