Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.

I want to take my acer aspire back to the factory setting but dont have a cd how do i do it


Acer are cheap and they don't provide you with a factory restore disk. You need to make this factory disk yourself. I know how to do this, but it is to much for me to type and here is a really really good reference site for you to visit to get instruction to make your own factory restore disk. After making that restore disc,  pop the disk into your laptop and turn of your laptop and restart and the factory restore program should start, if it should not start then go into your bios menu and have it boot from your Dvd-Rom and save, after full restoration, make sure you turn your boot priority back to where your Os is being installed, exm hard drive.

Dimension 4600 won't reset to factory settings


These model dells came with a recovery cd rather than a partition. You will need to call dell and have them send you a recovery cd and then use that disc to restore your computer to factory defaults.

I have norton 2008,and it used to work well.But now i try to live update it but everytime it says failed to find update and today its worst i cant even open my norton.Whats going on and what can i do


You may have let your updates get turned off and viruses have got in on you.
Norton hasn't been doing that great these days. You have to stay on top of your settings all the time to make sure there set to the highest level and your updates need to be checked regularly also.
You might try booting up in safemode and trying to reinstall from hard drive or repair it and see if this helps. If it lets you repair it go ahead and run a virus scan while in safemode. Although the last Norton I tried to run in safemode wouldn't work. You might try to repair it before you try safemode.
Go to the control panel and add & remove programs and click uninstall norton. It should give you the option to repair it. If it does run repair and see if it helps. If it does run updates immediately and then run a full system scan. Go into the settings and make sure you are set to the highest level of protection in Norton options and settings. I always set mine to repair and then delete if repair failed.
good luck.

I have several virus's detected including worms and trogen 22 files infected. i have Norton 360 version 2.0


Your Norton's anti-virus database if probably out dated. You need to update it and then start your computer in Safe Mode and run the anti-virus scan.
To get into Safe Mode:
Shutdown your computer. Then restart and hit F8 as soon as the video shows. then when you get the menu, select Safe Mode from the menu.
If you cannot get Norton's to update, download the free version of AVG Anti-virus and run it in Safe Mode.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Gateway laptop problem has been detected and Windows keep shuting down to prevent damage to computer. What shall I do? Norton has currently been added.


start your computer in safe mode.

Click start, run, type 'msconfig' in the box without the commas and click 'OK'

a system configuration utility window pops open. Click on the tab at the top in the middle that says 'boot.ini' and put a mark by safeboot. Drop down and click apply, move left and click close. Restart the computer, you will come up in safemode. If you dont get the same problem, is probably norton, norton wont start in safemode unless its the corporate edition.

to get back to regular mode, click start again, click on run, type msconfig and click ok. The system configuration utility window pops back open. Click the boot.ini tab and unmark safeboot. Drop down and click apply, move left and click close. Restart the computer. It will come back up in regular mode.

a work around if it is norton would be to remove norton and try AVG antivirus, is free

it problem persists, then it wasnt norton. Norton needs quite a bit of memory to run. If you dont have at least 512 mb in your system (more if your video card uses part of it), then you going to have problems.

Dear Sir,

Generally, if Norton is installed once & uninstalled. It won't allow you to install again. Simple solution is to get the Norton Complete Remover from Norton website available as a free program to tackle these type of situation.

After you run the complete uninstaller, you can once again install norton your system.

Check on Norton website or else write to me, I will give you the link to download from..
