Reset my fujitsu laotop model M6210 back to factoy reset


RESTORING THE FACTORY IMAGE
The Restore Disc that came with your system contains
two utilities:
? The Recovery utility allows you to restore the original
contents of the C: drive.
? The Hard Disk Data Delete utility on this disc is used
to delete all data on your hard disk and prevent it from
being reused. Do not use the Hard Disk Data Delete
utility unless you are absolutely certain that you want
to erase your entire hard disk, including all partitions.
BOOT Priority Change
Before restoring an image, you must first verify that your
system is set up to boot from the DVD drive. To verify/
change the boot-up priority (rather than booting-up
from the hard drive or an external floppy disk drive),
perform the following steps:
1. Start your system and press the [F2] key when the
Fujitsu logo appears. You will enter the BIOS Setup
Utility.
2. Using the arrow keys, go to the Boot menu.
3. Arrow down to the Boot Device Priority submenu.
Press [Enter].
4. If "Optical Media Drive" or "CD-ROM Drive" is not
at the top of the list, arrow down to the drive in the
list, and press the space bar (or the + key) to move it
to the top of the list. (The system attempts to boot
from the devices in the order in which they are
listed.). Note that the BIOS for some systems will
indicate "CD-ROM Drive", even when a DVD drive
is connected. Then put in DVD restore disc that came with the computer and follow its instructions.
• This disc can only be used with the system with which it was purchased.

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.

How do i restore my hp pavilion dv 5000 to factort setting?


There should have been a recovery disk created or included when you bought a laptop. Insert disk if you have it and restart your computer with the recovery disk in the CD drive. Make sure all your documents and personal data are backed up. When the computer restarts it should start restoring your computer to the factory default. There will be a wizard to guide you through the process.
If there is no disk or got lost,then follow this steps:
1.Save any files or folders on your computer with flash drives. Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
2.Go to "Start" > "Restart" to reboot your netbook.
3.Hold down "Alt" and "F10" when you see the logo on the screen. The recovery menu will load.
4.Hit "Enter" and then "Next" to see your recovery options. Choose "Factory Restore" to set your computer back to factory settings. Follow the instructions on the screen.
5.Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears. Reboot when you are prompted.
6.Restore your saved files from the flash drive.

JLMS DVD-ROM XJ-HD166 DVD/CD ROM Drive does not acknowledge disc in drive after having the computer set back to factory


Does it not acknowledge dvd disc only or cd or dvd both. If it doesn't read the dvd disc, or able to play dvd disc, but able to exlpore regular cd's, then you have a codec error, and you need to download a dvd codec like powerdvd for it for your system to play dvd disc. Check to see if your dvd-rom drive appears in the "my computer" window, if it is there, but wouldn't be able to play anything, then it could be a driver issue. so make sure in the hardware , the drivers is installed and working properly. If it is working properly and driver is installed, then you got a bad drive, the optical laser lenses isnt reading or the spindle ain't working anymore if you don't hear disc being loaded when inserting the disc.

How to reset my computer to factory defalts like it was when i got it new?


Use a factory restore/recovery disc if one is provided when your computer is purchase new. Insert disc into cd-rom and change boot priority or if in startup there is a boot option, use cd/dvd rom as first boot priority and follow instruction. If one disk is not provided, with some (branded such as sony, hp, etc) a recovery/restore partition is created within the harddrive, if this is valid, when booting up the computer, there should be a F-key prompting setup or etc.... if there is press that F key and follow instruction. If partion drive is not created for recovery/resotore, then you must create one disc... You can create this disc when in the operating system, go to your start task and in "all program" see if there is any recovery tools or aplication, which is usually your brand application exm.... acer computer has "acer recovery" and use such program to create a restore disc, once disc is created, turn of computer and set your boot prefernce to cd/dvd and then insert your disc and restart your computer, a black screen will be followed and prompt you that it is booting from cd/dvd rom and follow instruction. If one disc or program is not provide, consult your computer brand and have them send a copy of your factory restore disc for a small fee at your own cost.

My cd dvd dis appears in my computer


Have you recently installed a software such as Roxio or Nero? This can often lead to a corrupt engine recognition, especially if you have two or more different burning programs. I would suggest restoring computer back to a date at which it worked.
