Need too restore to factory


The HP Mini laptop comes with either the Windows 7 or Windows Vista operating system.
You can restore the HP Mini to its factory settings using the laptop's recovery partition.
Restoring the HP Mini to its original factory settings will get rid of hard to eliminate viruses on the laptop's hard drive.
A factory restoration is also a good way to get rid of older files still stored on the computer that you no longer need and start with a clean slate.

Windows Vista
Click "Start" in the lower-left corner of your HP Mini Windows Vista home screen, then type "Recovery" into the Search box at the bottom of the Start menu. Click "Recovery Manager" in the list of options that appears above the Search box. The HP Recovery Manager will open. Click "Advanced Options" and then "System Recovery." Click "Next." Your HP Mini will restart. The HP Recovery Manager will open up automatically after the restart is complete. Click "System Recovery," and then click "Next." Click "No" if a message pops up on your screen asking if you want to use Microsoft System Restore. Select "Recover without backing up your files," and then click "Next." The restoration process begins. This could take between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the of your hard drive and how much information you have stored on it. The HP Mini will restart when the laptop has been restored to its original factory settings, and you will be prompted to set up Windows Vista. Windows 7
Click the "Start" icon in the lower-left corner of your HP Mini Windows 7 home screen. Click "All Programs" and then click "Recovery Manager." Click "Recovery Manager" again to open the HP Recovery Manager program. Click "System Recovery" from the list of options beneath the "I need help immediately" section on the left side of the program. The HP Mini will automatically restart and open the HP Recovery Manager. Click "System Restore," and then click "Next." Click "No" if a message pops up on your screen asking if you want to use Microsoft System Restore. Select "Recover without backing up your files," and then click "Next." The restoration process could take between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the of your hard drive and how much information you have stored on it. The HP Mini will restart when the laptop has been restored to its original factory settings, and you will be prompted to set up Windows Vista.

Have a dell optiplexGX620 NEED TO KNOW WHAT FUNCTION KEY CAN RESTORE TO FACTORY SETTINGS AND CAN I POSSIBLY BACK UP ANYTHING..HAVE A PROGRAM ON STARTUP SAYS WINDOWS RECOVERY DOES NOT GET PAST IT OR LET ME...


Ctrl + F11. But you must make yourself a backup of everything you want to keep before that, the factory restore wipes it all - just copy the files to an external hdd. No, that program is a virus that has infected all and it's too late for anything else. If you need to recover the files and you can't start Windows properly just use a Linux Live-CD like

I have alot of viris in my computer i want to remove them and restore to factory settings


Before doing naything as radical as retoring to factory settings, why not try and get rid of the viruses by using a command line virus scanner, which does not install to the hard drive and therefore does not get attacked by any viruses and disabled. I'd recommend Panda or DRWEB...

If you want to restore to factory settings, you need to see if the laptop has a recovery partition on the hard drive that can be accessed at boot. this will restore all the settings

The last option is to reinstall windows using the cd. Go through the install proceedure until you get to the point that it "finds" an existing windows installation and then allow it to repair it

We have a spyware virus and can not get rid of it. lost manual for laptop. how do we restore it to its original settings?


If you can get into windows environment, you can try and defeat the malware by downloading malwarebytes free here or you can do a factory restore:

Click "Start" menu.

Click "Programs."

Click "Acer Recovery Management."

Click the "Restore" button on the bottom of the dialog box that opens.

Click "Restore System to Factory Default."

Click "Yes" in the warning dialog box which asks if you wish to continue the recovery process.

Click "Start" to restore the computer to the default factory settings.


If you cannot get into windows, Hold down the ALT button while tapping F10, right when starting the computer, before the Acer logo. The wizard will guide you through the rest of the process.

Restore factory settings without CD


Hello

Reboot your system . Press F11 when started . Generally F11 is for recovery to the factory settings . If there is any other option for recovery , select it . Your system will be booted to the factory image if tha is already stored on your system.

Large Black rectangle on bottom half of screen


My mother-in-law had this problem on a Quasar for two years before she finally mentioned it. The rectangle is a text box for closed captioning or for a demonstation list of features, but without the text. I restored the factory presets and poof... problem solved.

Look in the manual and find how to restore the factory settings - it will probably be some weird combination of buttons that you would never guess. On her set, which has a built-in VCR, it was simultaneously pressing "play" and "FF" (on the set, not the remote) for five seconds until the set powered down. Yours will probably be something different but equally odd. That should get rid of the black rectangle. Then you go through the initial setup and you're back in business.
