Restore factory settings without disk


when you first power on the machine hit F11 (for most machines) on the keyboard repeatedly until the recovery screen pops up. Click on advanced options, click system recovery, then click OK when prompted. the recovery process will begin and take about 25 minutes on a 5400rpm hard drive. then you must reinstall everything that isn't factory.
NOTE: THIS WILL ERASE ALL DATA THAT ISN'T PREINSTALLED. AFTER THE RECOVERY, YOU MUST INSTALL THE INTERNET SOFTWARE, VIRUS SOFTWARE, ALL UPDATES (THERE'LL BE A LOT!!), AND PERSONAL SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE. BACK UP ALL DATA BEFORE YOU BEGIN. ONCE THE RECOVERY PROCESS STARTS, IT CANNOT BE STOPPED, OR THE SYSTEM WILL GET CORRUPTED. :(
Hopefully this will help.
P.S. Give this recovery process about a day to get it over with. Don't rush it for best results, and use pc decrapifier to remove all the bloatware and trial ware installed by hp on your pc.

How do I upgrade or reprogram my dell latitude d630 without a recovery disk? please help


You don't need a manufacturer's recovery set except to put back the exact same stuff as was originally installed, much of which you don't need anyway. Your computer will have a valid Windows product key sticker on it, and you can reinstall Windows using a regular installation CD.

You'll need a CD for the same version of Windows that was preinstalled. You will also need the drivers for your computer's hardware (video, audio, network interface, etc.), which you can download from Dell's website.

Insert the Windows CD and boot the computer from it. (Most computers are set to boot from the CD drive if there's a disc in, but you may have to change the boot order if your computer always tries the hard drive first.) At one point you'll need to enter the Windows product key; use the one on the sticker on your computer. Later, after the installation is all finished, you'll need to go through activating your Windows copy. These steps aren't needed with the factory restore disc, but it's only a minor inconvenience.

After Windows is installed, install the hardware drivers you downloaded. Most drivers are packed as executable programs. Run them and they automatically install whatever Windows needs. When you're done, your computer will be ready to go.

Your computer won't have any of the applications that were preinstalled, but it's normally stuff you can live without anyway. You can find free or low-cost applications for just about anything you want to do. For antivirus programs there's Avast!, AVG, and Avira for starters. Some CD/DVD burning software applications are CDBurnerXP or InfraRecorder. OpenOffice is a great alternative to Microsoft's Office suite. In short, you're able to put on just what you need, and to pick from the many options available.

Don't let the process scare you. It's actually quite simple and the result is worth it. Good luck with your restore, and thanks for using Fixya!

Unable to reinstall DVD backups after HP SYSTEM RECOVERY failed


Code "purple" means you and your computer are done. It is an unrecoverable error that means you need a new system. However, I have found a couple of postings that claim to know a fix. I can not verify these methods, I do not own a HP or other type of prefab PC (custom is the only way to go). Anyway, here are the links, good luck.

If Works Suite 2000 was preinstalled when you purchased your computer, and you lost the CD key, you must call your equipment manufacturer for a new CD key for Works Suite 2000.

For information about how to contact your equipment manufacturer, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://support.microsoft.com/gp/vendors If Works Suite 2000 was not preinstalled, and you lost your CD key, please call Works Suite 2000 support for a new CD key.

The touch pad and 'click' buttons on my Sony VGN-A115Z laptop have stopped working since I had to use the recovery procedure due to loading what I think was some corrupt software. Is there a 'switch'or...


Hello.

Your touch pad driver has probably not installed corectly.

I suggest you download the driver pack provided by sony here:
http://support.vaio.sony.co.uk/downloads/preinstalled/preinstalled.asp?site=voe_en_GB_cons&m=1674
extract the archive after download and run Apoint.exe from the PointingStickDriver directory

Hope this helps!

I have an Aspire 3680 Acer laptop and it has Acer Arcade bundled with the other software on the laptop. I am not able to view DVDs on the laptop using Acer Arcade. Please help!


"Installing other playback software affects the codecs Acer Arcade needs to playback the disc properly. I suggest you reinstall Arcade and see if the playback in Arcade clears up. Here are the steps to do this:

To restore a driver or application that was preinstalled on your computer from the factory, you need to run Acer eRecovery, here are the steps:
1. Move your mouse over the Empowering technology widget and click on the eRecovery Manager icon or you may also press ALT and F10 on the keyboard to start the program.

Please note: The first time you access the eRecovery feature, you are prompted to create a password. If you forget it then you will have to use the recovery discs to reformat the system.

2. In the next window look at the bottom of the window and choose Restore.

3. Now choose Reinstall Applications/Drivers

4. Choose Install
5. Click on Windows Vista on the left side of the page
6. Choose driver or applications.
7. In the list choose the item you wish to install
8. On the right click the install link and follow the prompts.
9. The system may restart when installation is complete

Do not allow the system to shut down during this process. Plug in the AC adapter if necessary. "
