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 you go about to format a toshiba l650 and reinstall windows 7


Hi! If you have the Windows 7 disc just insert it restart the computer. It will boot directly from the disc. Then follow the step by step instructions here.
If you don't have the Windows 7 disc, you have two ways to reformat your Toshiba computer.
Using Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from the recovery partition
In case of a hard disk drive failure, you may be able to restore the drive to the factory default state using the on-disk Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility (in a special partition on the hard disk drive).
You can select restoring the entire hard disk drive to the factory default state, or restoring only the C: drive -- without affecting other partitions (for example, a D: drive) -- or changing the size allocated to your C: drive, and then restore it.
To recover your hard disk drive from a system failure using the utilities stored on your computers HDD, follow these steps:
  1. If the computer is running, shut it down -- by clicking Start, Shut Down, and again Shut Down.
  2. Press and hold the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard and then press the computers power switch. When the computer turns on, the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting three options:
htd7c02140000r0136063.jpg
Sample TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen

Restore Original Factory Image (Recommended)
CAUTION:
Restoring a hard disk drive to its factory default state deletes all partitions on the hard disk drive and all data stored on those partitions. All of your files and information will be lost! Be sure to back up all important files first.
  1. Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all data will be overwritten and lost during the restore process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.
  2. Click Yes to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating the HDD has been restored.
  3. Press any key to restart the computer.
* The options 2 & 3 are for advanced users.
Hard Disk Drive Recovery using Recovery CDs or DVDs
You may also wish to to run the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from Recovery CDs or DVDs that you have created.

Insert the first Recovery CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive, and turn on the computer. Once the computer is running, the TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting the same three options above. Again Press 1 to
restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. Click Yes to begin the recovery. Press any key to restart the computer.

Installing Drivers and Applications
The TOSHIBA Application Installer allows you to reinstall the drivers and applications that were originally bundled with your computer.
To reinstall drivers and applications:
  1. Double-click the "Toshiba Application Installer" icon on the Windows desktop. This utility may also be launched by clicking Start -->All Programs --> Hard Disk Recovery Utilities.

    htd7c02140000r0136067.jpg

  2. Click "Next".
  3. Click the item(s) you wish to install. To select multiple items, hold down the Ctrl key as you click your selections.
  4. Click "Install".
  5. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation process.

Hope this helps.

I was wondering how to reboot it to factory settings (how i first bought it) everytime i try, it comes up with system restore and only restores when i last backed it up.


In order to restore your system back to totally factory settings you have to have the CD that came with your computer. Then you will have to make sure that you are booting from the DVD or CD-ROM as the first boot and the second is HD. Not sure as to what F button you need to actuate during the boot up to get to BIOS it may be F2 or F12 anyway when you get to the BIOS select boot and choose CD or DVD-ROM as the first boot then either F10 and exit or exit. Follow on screen instructions in the BIOS.

Now place your recovery CD or DVD in the drive and restart the laptop. Select restore complete system when the option from the CD restore disc comes up. It will format and restore your original system files. You do have to have the original restore disc for your model and serial for your lap top since you did not mention what brand your laptop is just go to the support or downloads or on their site for your computer to be able to purchase one. That is the only way you can restore it back to its original state when you purchased it. Thanks for using FixYa! John
