I have a hpcompaqdx2200 with password protection and no recovery cd to reformat to facory settings and no f11 function to restore via system set up - can i restore to factory settings via safe mode command...


If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard. If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.

How to back up windows vista and how to restore if any problem


Click start,all programs, look for Acer folder, you are looking for recovery media creator, have a couple of blank DVD-/+R and follow the instructions to create a restore set, you can only make one set,(until you restore again, then you COULD make another set). This only makes a copy of the factory installed software, it doesn't back up any of your personal data.
To restore, put the 1st disk in, and restart the PC, follow the prompts to boot to CD/DVD and start restore
