You can restore your system to some back date where it's working fine through system recovery option, for this go to program - accessories - system tools - system restore option.
then select some back date where do you think your system is ok

Hello there i have asus z53e and ex partner is a major computer wizz... i was wondering if i have to purchase a disk to bring it back to factory settings soo i can delete everything he has done to it??? he...


Hi benjianddave....
You should have a "recovery disc" on your computer hard drive already...
Look in "All Programs" and you should see a way to make the recovery discs.
(If not then you may have to buy the recovery discs)

You can use the recovery mode to bring your computer back to an earlier time when it was working right.
Left click on "Start">All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore

I wanna know how to reset my laptop back to factory settings Gateway windows 7 model# NEW90 NV59C


usually if you dont get a recovery disc with your laptop you would then use those discs to reload the system from scratch. the other is that you would have to create recovery discs as soon as you started using the laptop. if the sales person did not make you aware of it then he is a very bad sales person. the other solution would be to go to the web-site of the manufacturer of the laptop and under the support section or drivers and downloads you will find drivers and recovery disc image or iso or a self extracting file which you will then have to copy to disc then use the created disc to reload the system

Lost internet


Try to get an external dvd drive and hook it up to the laptop. Choose the external drive as your boot device and then boot up off of the disk so you can restore your laptop back to factory defaults.

I have a loptop of Acer Aspire5520.I have to formate now but i lost my system backup & restore disk.How can i get this backup.Pls let me know.


Normally , acer laptops have a hidden recovery partition on the hard drive , which contains all of the recovery data so you dont need the recovery discs.

When you boot up your computer and you get the Acer logo etc , try pressing keys to start the recovery - this puts everything back to factory default settings and erases your data.

Also , A program ships with the laptop called 'Acer Empowering Technology - eRecovery' which allows you to burn your own recovery disc - You then use this disc to perform a complete system restore.

Recovery disks, Factory specs, pda files and pcmcia?


thanks for your smile
recovery disc is used for recovering your operating system when your pc is having problem.
restoring back to factory default means the settings of the computer when you received the computer from the shop. in other words default settings.
pda files are personal data assistance files.
pcmcia card is same as lan card( also known as nic card, ethernet card) of your pc. pcmcia card is used in lap tops.

I lost some of my settings-microsoft word is just gone--can you have it reinstalled to this computer? How can I get the original factory settings back? I dont have a recovery disk?


Somewhere within your stash of Gateway disks, there might be a disk to restore Microsoft Office. If not, I would suggest contacting Gateway computers to see what your options are. They most likely have had this sort of question asked before. If not, you'll have to look at purchasing Microsoft Office. You shouldn't have to, but contact Gateway regardless.

Re: Need to do a factory restore


Hello:

REcovery discs can do the task by restoring it to the factory setting. you can insert it directly to the DVD/CD ROM and then boot the pc to the ROM. and the follow the onscreen instruction.

however; if you have recovery disk then you have to provide windows installation disk and install it to the your hard drive.

installation of windows information is found here:
