I WANT TO REFORMAT MY SAMSUNG NP-R60Y TO FACTORY SETTINGS WITHOUT THE PREVIOUS OWNERS INFORMATION BEING THERE


If you perform a Full Installation (Destructive Installation), the computer will be back to day 1, when it came from the factory.

This means the previous owner hadn't been there yet, and all of the previous owner's files do NOT exist.

This is done with either;

1) Restoration Disk:
When you receive the laptop new, and run it for the first time, a pop-up comes up asking if you would like to make a Backup.
THIS,...is the Restoration Disk.

[ Or perhaps Samsung included the Restoration Disk (CD)
Laptop manufacturers are starting to include the disk again. The reason they stopped because owners were too afraid to use it, or just lost the disk. { "Don't need this! Look out cat!" ]

2) New genuine copy of Windows:
Purchase a new genuine copy of Windows, and install it.
ALL previous files (Info) will be gone.

[ Microsoft makes one Master disk. From it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold to the consumer.

IF, you are installing the SAME version of Windows that is on the laptop, you need to go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Order, set the first boot device to CDROM ]

How do i restore my blackberry bold 9900 to factory settings


Good Day, Goto Options, then to Security, and click Security Wipe. You can enable the first two boxes. But note that everything on your phone will be wiped off except if you backup your data. Mind you, your applications can't be backedup.(You can backup User data by using BB Protect or BB Desktop Manager) By doing the above, you have done factory restore. Try this and be kind enough to rate my solution. Thanks for using Fixya!

I traded my old phone for a razor and everytime I turn on the razor it says to enter an unlock code. I've tried 1234 and 0000.


It maybe is a code set by the previous owner. You have to ask him or if all else fails, try restoring to factory settings.

Start up and desktop icons missing


Hi,

This could happen due to various reasons like :
1. Any recent update done.
2) Virus infected
3) Windows missing/corrupted files.

There are several steps to resolve the issue.

Try one after another and check if that fixes the issue.

Step 1

Try this Fix
Click on the Download link and install the Fix No. 195 ( Restore Desktop Icons and Taskbar )
Download Link

Step 2

Press CTRL-ALT-DEL to bring Task Manager.
Click on New Task and type appwiz.cpl and click OK
This will re-run add/remove programs.
Remove/Uninstall all new program you installed before having this problem, Also remove the Windows XP Hotfix
Restart your PC.
The access to the taskbar , icons will all come back and Install a new Antivirus.

Step 3
If None of the above steps work, try a System Restore to previous date

Click START - All Programs - ACCSESSORIES - System Tool - System Restore
Choose the date before the system started giving trouble. ( The Date will be in bold ( highlighted ) which indicates the system can be restored to that date with all the settings on that date )

*Note : Doing system restore will uninstall any software/program you have installed from the date you choose the system restore till current date, However it will not delete any files created )

Hope this is helpful.

My internet wont work anymore because i downloaded an update ( Windows home premium) on my acer x1200 I want to wipe / recover my computer to its original facttory settings but ive tried everything. I dont...


Click: Start
Click: All Programs
Click: Accessories
Click: System Tools
Click: System Restore

Pick a "restore-point" that was taken _before_ the update was applied,
and restore your system to that previous date/time.

OR ....

Look under "All Programs" for a utility that will help you burn CD/DVD(s) to create a "Recovery Disk" set. Burn more CD/DVD(s) with all your "data" files (or copy all your data-files to an external hard-drive). Then, boot from the "Recovery Disk", to begin the process of restoring the "factory" settings.

WILL not resetting to factory settings


You will need to burn a Recovery CD / DVD set from the icon located on the desktop/ In your Acer Home Start utility (The window loading at startup) or from the Start Menu.

Using this disk you will be able to do a System Restore back to original factory setup.
