Your backup disk is just that, it is used as a boot disk to get your computer to re boot and start windows. It is not intended to reload windows on your computer, you have to get the windows installation disk and install that. Actually you can load any windows from 95 to Vista, if your computer can handle it. You can insert any windows disk and load that on your computer to get it to operate, then just upgrade to the windows you want. Good Luck.

Can i restore my aspire t180 to factory settings without the os cd.my sister gave me this comp. without any of the software it came with


If the recovery partition is intact, boot the machine and press ALT + F10 simultaneously. If the partition still exists and hasn't been corrupted, the machine will take you through the recovery process of which Factory Restore is among the options.

I have one computer with E210882 intel motherboard..i was open this computer for replace the harddisk i connect one used hard disk now this computer is working but the audiosystem is not working picture...


> used hard disk
If you have installed a drive from another system, it probably has settings applicable to the system from which it was removed. The original system could well have had settings for a different audio chip and video resolution. You need to look at the device drivers for audio and video and make the changes needed so they apply to the laptop you have.

Restore old hp to factory settings


Restart and when you see HP logo on boot press F11.
If it's not opening Restore Option screen, you'll need to get restore CDs from HP.
Otherwise, just use any regular XP or Vista CD to format and install OS.

Computers shut down randomly while students are working on them. Red light blinks on the front of the CPU. The computers have Deep Freeze and Synchron Eyes on them as well.


Open the PC box. Check the CPU heatsink/fan for dust clogs. After that is cleaned, put a little fan blowing onto the mobo. An over heating processor acts just like this. If the BIOS were changed try to scale back a little, first. Just see if the venting solves its prob. Wont cost you anything, and it wont hurt....
