Basically you need the Windows installation CD plus the product installation code. Boot up with the Windows installation CD to install Windows on the hard disk, follow the on screen instructions - delete the existing Windows partition, create a new partition and format the new partition (full NTFS format - not a quick format) and continue with the installation.
Next you need to install the motherboard device drivers, you can download them from the motherboard manufacturer's WEB site from a computer with internet access. Copy these drivers onto an USB memory stick and insert this memory stick into you PC tower and install these drivers.
After installing these drivers you can now connect to the Internet to activate your Windows, You can activate Windows over the phone.

You do have to go there to get the factory

if you have an owners manual or they write it down

Not a reset code,just a security code

I want to reset it


@lslchrisorei

Toshiba laptops have a built-in recovery mode on the system wherein you don't need to use a disc to restore it to factory default (if that's what you mean by "I want to reset it". The hotkey for the recovery is the 0 key (don't use the key on the numpad). To activate it, you need to turn the computer off, then you need to hold the 0 key then turn the computer back ON. If you hear a continuous beep, you can let go of the key and It will then say "Windows is loading files" and will proceed with System Recovery. If this doesn't work, that means that this computer doesn't have the hidden partition for you to restore the unit to factory defaults (either it's faulty or it's not there) and you need to order the recovery discs from Toshiba at 1-800-457-7777 (for US) and for Canada, it's 1-800-663-0378.

If you're still under warranty, they'll give it to you for free.

Cheers

This was given to my daughter as a gift. she wasn't given the disk or whatever it takes to connect to my pc. yes i have the cord that is not what I mean I need the download information. also it needs...


The unit doesn't come with any disk. factory settings can be done on the mp3 player itself. Soft reset is on the back of the unit, just use a paper clip to reset.
Your computer should automatically detect the device as a 'removable disk' drive under 'my computer' after you plug it in. if not, it might be on MTP mode, In the device menu, go to 'SETUP' > System > USB Mode, make sure you have it on MSC. Some computers are missing MTP (because you dont use Windows Media Player), then reconnect it, computer should read it correctly.

There is a reset button on the back. Press and hold that button (will require the end of a paper clip to get to it) for 20 seconds until the unit resets. The settings will be restored to the original factory defaults. The IP address will be 192.168.1.1 and the password will be admin (no user name).

I need to know how to reset my acer aspire 6930 to factory settings!!!!!


A slightly different model requires pressing Alt+F10 at the start up and following the prompts. This will wipe the hard drive though, so back up everything important first. You can probably still get the data even if it doesn't boot Windows.
