Factory rest

To reset, pull the battery out so the BIOS discharge. There are two pins that are bridged with a small black connector. Three Pins are visible and you need to lift the bridge connector from the two pins they are now on, move it to the next two pins. That removes the BIOs data sequence currently active and brings the BIOs back to Factory settings. In some cases, OLD Bios need an Update from the manufacturer. Once the factory reset is done, put the connector back on the original pins, fire up the computer and start from there.

Want to restore to factory settings

Which factory settings? If you mean the BIOS settings, when you start the machine, go into setup (could be F2, F11 or F12 depends on the motherboard) and there is a place in there (you'll see it when the screen opens) to reset to default. It will ask if you really want to do it, answer YES and it will reset all of your BIOS setting back to factory defaults. Once it resets, it will reboot the machine.

To reset the BIOS back to the default settings and you cannot locate the reset jumper, just remove the BIOS battery for approx. 30 mins.
This will discharge the battery voltage in the BIOS, then insert the BIOS battery back and you can go into the BIOS configuration and set the Date and Time etc.

Netbook fails to boot up. Black screen after samsung logo.

I had the same problem today - Samsung updated some of its software last night, then this morning the netbook couldn't boot.

I entered the BIOS - press F2 - and told the BIOS to reset back to its default settings. This fixed it. I guess the update screwed up the BIOS somehow.

If it not works then you have to reset all settings of bios to factory defaults.
For that you need to open back side cover of laptop.
Open all screw in back side then remove cover then you find motherbord chipset .
Pull cmos cell from motherbord 15 minutes so all settings goes to factory defaults.
Let me know if you need more assistanse.

How do I reset bios on emachine d3415

When you say you mean that you want to restore the bios back to their original factory settings?  
That can usually be done from the bios (reboot, press either F2 or F10...the screen that displays upon boot will let you know what to press) ...there should be an option to re-set the bios back to the factory settings.....
But if that is not wat you are trying to do, let me know.

I nedd my laptop

If you lost you password to your BIOS, you can reset your BIOS by taking out the CMOS battery and placing it back in.
On the bottom of your laptop, you should see a panel that is screwed on. Take out the screws, and in there should be your hard drive, or your laptops memory sticks. And around it should be a round battery connected to the motherboard with a wire. Un-plug and Re-plug the wire, and your BIOS should have reset back to its default settings.
