I have acer 4315 aspire now the system is too slow so I need to do the factory setting before I done that by Empowering technology acer recovery management I would like to do same that way so i need your...

You will need to reboot your computer. While it is booting up press and hold the "ALT" key and then keep tapping F10 at the same time. This will bring you to a screen that says something like "loading files" or "starting recovery". It will ask you how you would like to restore your computer. Choose "Restore to factory default". It should take about 20 minutes and once it's done it will be back to the way it was when you purchased it. It WILL delete all of your data so ensure you have a back up before you do this.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

I forgot the password to my old hp pavilion ze4200 laptop. i cant enter windows. how can i restore my computer?

Not sure if your talking about a windows operating system password or a BIOS password that comes up when you first turn it on but either way, as soon as you turn on the laptop, keep pressing the f11 key and it should bring you into the HP Factory Restore. If it doesn't then you'll need a windows cd to restore your laptop back to factory defaults and then load the drivers and any software you'll use on the laptop.
Keep in mind if you have a BIOS password then you'll need to call HP to get help in removing that.

How to reset my ibm thinkpad 2647

Hi langston620,
To restore your T23 Laptop back to factory defaults we can use the partition created in your Hard Drive for restoration, see steps below.
Note: Before doing this make sure that you have backed up all personal data on your Hard drive that important to you. if no data needs to be backed up see below thanks.
  • Turn your computer OFF.
  • As soon as you turn the computer ON keep on tapping F11, when the system starts to beep you stop tapping F11.
  • It should bring you to a page for the Recovery of your operating system.
  • This will give your options to restore you system back to factory defaults.
  • If ever it ask for what Windows to install just select the windows that you have previously and most likely there only be one in the list.
  • After the restoration has finished it may or may not give you an option to reboot your Laptop, if not just press and hold down CTRL+ALT+Del keys to restart your Laptop this should bring your system back to factory defaults.
  • Regarding the time frame I really am not sure how long this should take, maybe 30 mins to an hour maybe.
I Hope that this can help your restore your Laptop back to defaults, this is as far as I can help, have a nice day.

Hp pavilion zt3000 keyboard locked and keyboard drivers will not load

turn on the laptop and try going into the BIOS, if you can get into the BIOS then you know the keyboard is only locked in windows. If you can't get into the BIOS cause the keyboard is not responding then the keyboard ribbon needs to be reseated and if that doesn't work then the keyboard is bad. If the keyboard is working, reboot again and keep pressing F8 and it should bring up a menu. Choose safe mode and you should be able to get in there. If you can then go ahead and go into the accessories folder in the start menu and into system tools and choose system restore. Choose the last date that the keyboard last worked properly.

Go ahead at this point and let the machine restore to that date and when it reboots it will bring you back into windows and at this point, the keyboard should work. If it doesn't then its a problem with the OS and you'll need to do a factory restore.

Playstation 3 problems

Hey Pete,

Try unplugging the ethernet cable on your ps3 or, if it comes down to it i would retore my playstation 3 to factory settings. But before you do that see if you have files in there that you don't want to delete cause once you restore it to factory settings all the files in your hard drive will be erased. I think unplugging the Ethernet cable should solve your problem.
