No a system restore can take the computer back to an earlier time, windows is usually installed to do this, a reformat has a double meaning 1st format in FAT, FAT32, NTFS and leave (these are mostly used as storage drives) 2nd reformat: this is when a new windows or linux intallation is done, hence "i had to completely reformat my drive"

Emachine 3653 factory restore


You can use the Restore CD that came with the computer. The eMachines restore disk sets your PC back to factory settings with the original operating system and programs that were shipped with the computer. Doing so resolves many problems that can arise from long-term computer use, viruses, or the operating system slowing down.


1. To do a factory restore insert the restore CD then reboot the computer. When prompted, press any key to boot from the CD.


2. Select the option to "Reformat the drive to factory settings."

3. Follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall the operating system and original software that came with your computer.

4. Once the Restore finishes, you can re-install all the programs that you added to the computer as well as restore your files.


Reminder: Reformatting your computer erases all of your installed programs, personal documents, pictures and music. If you have the ability to, back up all of your personal data using a removable flash drive, external hard drive or DVDs before doing a Factory Restore.

I want to reformat my acer 4720oz please send me bootable disk


The Acer Aspire 4720 Notebook has a hidden partition containing files to restore the system to its factory default. On powering up, press the Alt key and the F10 key together (at the same time) repeatedly and after a minute or so, Acer eRecovery Management should start up. Follow the on-screen directions to do a restore of the system to its factory default. The restoration process will reformat the partition that is the C: drive. After restore has completed, Acer eRecovery Management can be used to create a set of disks for a full back up of your system's factory default image.

When i try to start my emachines e525 laptop it goes to a windows error recovery screen and gives me the option to launch startup repair...but when that goes to start the screen goes black. I've tried last...


Have you tried reformatting your hard drive and resintalling your operating system. Alot of times with the corrupted files on your hard drive, the system restore will not work. If your recovery partition is not there then your recovery process will not work either. I would definitely try to reformat the hard drive and reinstall windows and restore my files from a backup. have fun!

How do you restore back to factory settings for an 2930Z


Few options.

A) Restore Point - Sometimes you can do a simple System Restore. click start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore then click back on the calender to the very first restore point for me its the first day of my reformat (done it a few times) so anytime i have a really bad problem and i don't have any backup i go back to this restore point.

B) repair - insert your Operating system cd (windows xp, Vista, etc) and restart or turn on the computer. your cd should automaticly start up first. click the repair function and follow directions.

C) reformat - same as above except you pick install windows.... and follow directions. this is worst case senario if you don't care to lose EVERYTHING.


remember as soon as you open the box and turn computer on make a restore point. BACK UP at least once month EVERYTHING that is important. also a full system back up is awsome if you need to do this agin.

Well, you should try reformatting your hard drive chances are the old system restore disk formatted your drive to a different file system. After that install the restore disk that came with your system.

Hope this helps:)

Make sure that the System Restore option is still enabled in Windows XP. This can be done by right click on the My Computer and selecting Properties. Click on the System Restore tab and make sure the Turn off System Restore button is NOT CHECKED.
