When folks purchase
their computers in today's world. You have to go to their recommended download
site and gather up your models recovery disc. If they provide the recovery disc
for you in the box that is a serious plus. Some people just do not know how to
download things off the net not know how to burn them. Companies do not wish to
spend the large amounts of money it takes to provide each customer with a
system restore disc these days.
Some companies still
store them and other do not offering people no support at all when their
computers fail. Anything computers before 2008 maybe even newer, will not have
disc support let alone driver sites to go to. If you are lucky enough to have
such a deal get all the goodies while you can. Companies have also set aside on
your computer recovery section on your hard drive where you can recovery from
there, So support is null and void really of any real change of talking to a
tech guy mainly oversees, although at the time of sale sure we offer great
support for your new machine. It can be frustrating to say the least been there
done that one.
Now to solve that matter
of restoring your computer and you are not going to like hearing this, you are
going to need a factory restore disc, or you will have to follow those
informative members who know if even there is a restore section on the hard
drive or a method in which you can do this without a disc again often the case.
If you do not have one available for your computer?
You can go back and
restore from a saved image file you did or a backup in which most folks did not
do in the beginning of time since they first started using their machines.
"Imperative" Now you know why?
It simple really, for
those of us who have done this several hundreds of times. Personally I like to
get rid of all the factory junk that comes with computers these days. Most of
it is junk filling up your computers, some of it is needed but really not
needed with the deployment of Win 7. I always keep a copy of Windows 7 and use
this disc when restoring computers. It is called and O.E.M. disc. Or you can
just for you purchase a Win 7 disc. This way no junk no extra things on the
hard drive that will pop up or disturb you with buy this and buy that sort of
thing in your face.
You know why because
Windows 7 in its update process keeps loads of driver and hardware files and
software it seeks on your computer during the update and installs them for you
if there is a driver that it does not pick up "Rare" it offers a
solution as to where to find that driver file at. Thus support is done
virtually. Unlike XP where you still have to seek out some driver files after
restoring your machines in most cases. So my advice is Windows 7 if you can get
a disc for yourself by all means do it. Make sure that you have the resources
within your computer to do this update.
Place the system restore
disc in the DVD or CD drive of your machine. Boot from that source first boot.
Go to BIOS or where it set set the boot order and do this most machines are
designed to boot from DVD or CD drives by default. Follow the onscreen
instructions and there you have it a restored computer.
It would take me forever to seek out restore discs for every single question I answer. The main questions are, "how to restart my computer without a password" How do I restore my computer back to factory settings? If you do a little more research on your subject matter there are solutions other than just having a restore disc. However as much as I would love to be able to give everyone there complete answer and a complete solution to this issue. Many brands come into play and many different models as involved for me to find out if yours has restore capabilities located in a drive section.
