How to reboot from boot sequence


Click the power button and watch the screen to see which key it says to press to get into the Bios or System Setup. Change the boot order or boot sequence. You want to boot from the cd drive 1st and the hard drive 2nd. This will change it permanently. Then reboot.

There might also be an option to change it temporarily when you boot the system. Just watch the screen and see if it shows you which key to press to change the boot order or boot sequence. It is only effective for this one boot.

Every so often my thunderbolt will crash and reboot for no apparent reason. Is this normal or a malfunction with the phone


There are a lot of software issues with some applications that lock up the phone.

Try deleting newly downloaded applications and work backwards until your phone does not reboot again. Any paid for apps can simply be re-downloaded through the Android Market.

If this does not work, attempting a factory reset will be your next step.

Factory Reset

1) Make sure you back up all of your contacts, pictures, etc. Factory Resetting could possibly delete all data off of your microSD card, and you wouldn't want to lose any of it.
2) Once done, from the home screen tap the Menu key.
3) Tap the Settings Option.
4) Under Settings, tap Privacy
5) Select Factory Data Reset
6) Tap Reset Phone.

Once done, your phone should be restored to factory defaults.

If for some reason your phone has decided to continue crashing and rebooting, you must perform a Hard Reset. This will undoubtedly remove contact information.

Hard Reset

  1. Remove the battery and replace it.
  2. Press and hold the Volume Button
  3. Press and hold the Power Button until the phone powers on.
  4. You should see a simple menu showing options such as Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage and Simlock.
  5. Using the Volume Down button to navigate, Highlight Clear Storage
  6. Press the Power Button to select Clear Storage
  7. Confirm your decision with Volume Up for Yes. If you feel like backing out, press Volume Down.
Remember, everything will be lost from this point on; so be sure you have EVERYTHING backed up that you do not wish to disappear. This will return your phone to it's original, out-of-the-box condition, software-wise.

If even, after the Hard Reset your phone still reboots, contact your Customer Service department for a warranty replacement.

I have a lenovo y 430 laptop and i want to restore it to factory setting. So I start with the laptop switched off. I click on the OKR button. My laptop just boots up as normal. Once it is on, I press the...


1. Turn off your compter.

2. Look for theOne Key Recovery button on your PC. It's near the power button.

3. Press the OKR button, wait until your computer turns on.

4. After Windows loading files you'll be routed on Lenovo One Key Rescue System.

5. Select One Key Recovery then, select restore from Intial back up.

Usually it will take 20-30 minutes for the whole process to be done. Once it's finish just reboot your computer.

If this fails, then call them.

My daughters computer is a dell latitude D610 notebook running Windows XP.....when powering up XP starts to load and then goes to a blank blue screen....Is there a restore disc or something i can download...


Hi. I provided you a link where to download the restore disk. Once you have downloaded the restore disk, here's the instruction on how to use the disk.

Instruction:

  • Backup all the data you want to keep on an external hard drive, flash drive, or rewritable CD. Resetting your Dell to factory defaults will erase all data currently on your computer.

  • 2

    Insert the Recovery CD into your CD-ROM.

  • 3

    Reboot your computer.

  • 4

    Watch the text in DOS carefully. When prompted to boot from your CD, do so.

  • 5

    Choose System Restore and then follow the instructions presented. Once system recovery beings, it may take a few minutes. Once it's done, your system will reboot again.

  • 6

    Remove the Recovery CD from your CD-ROM and store it carefully. Your system has been reset to the factory default.

    How to reboot my sony vaio vgn-cs26t to original factory setting


    insert the first recovery disk and simply reboot your computer. instead of loading windows you will be brought to a screen where you can set up your computer to be reformatted. if the computer boots windows instead you will need to change the boot order in the bios and set the cd rom drive first. this can be done by pressing a button or button combination while the computer is booting. pay attention because you onle have a few seconds. if all else fails call sony tech support and ask them how to change your boot order

    Replaced 512M DDR with 2G DDR2, only sees 512M


    Hi,

    This often occurs as a result of fast/quickpost settings in your bios.

    You will need to shut down your system, boot it, then quickly read the black and white screen.

    Then press whatever button your system displays as the setup or bios button, generally Esc, Del, F1 or F2 but can be anything.

    Once in your BIOS just browse around until you find the setting marked Quickpost, Fastpost, Quiet Post, etc.

    When you find the setting, Disable it, save the settings and reboot. Once you're done rebooting, check the system properties. This should do the trick, then repeat the steps to re-enable the quick mode, and reboot again. It only needs to be disable for one boot sequence to allow the computer to find and add the new hardware to it's BIOS setup.


    Hope this helps FixYa,

    Chris
