Question about PC Desktops

I am trying to restore my brother-in-law's Packard Bell iStart 2369 to its factory settings. There are no restore disks and the restore partition has been deleted. Any idea where we can get disks from to restore to factory settings? Much obliged.

If the Recovery Process doesn't work maybe you can purchase replacement CD's. Try contacting PB to see if replacements are available.

Hi, Have you tried accessing the Recovery Option pressing F10 or the R Key When Thr Machine is Booting Up?
Even though you say you've deleted the Recovery Partition, it may still be possible to recover the system to default settings.

In Step 3. It mentions that all data on the drive will be formatted anyway, so I presume you may just be able to get it up and going again, although it also mentions that some applications that were not shipped with the system will need to be re-installed, so whether this will stop you from successfully recovering the system to factory default I can't say! Worth a shot anyway :-).

Is there any way I can get a Packard Bell iMedia S3810 motherboard/BIOS to become UEFI compliant - I have a 4TB HD which I cannot currently install any OS on to...


No, the motherboard chipset will not support the newer technology. While it is true that MBR disks cannot be larger than 2TB, this does not preclude you from using a larger disk as a boot disk. You simply have to partition the drive to make the first (boot) partition 2TB or less. You can then format and install the OS to that partition. You just can't leave the full 4TB as a single drive letter, and most users wouldn't do that anyway.

Emachines G720 could you please help me restore it back to factory settings


If your computer has a restore partition, it can be accessed by repeatedly tapping alt+F10 right after turning the computer on. Usually with Acer computers (including emachines, gateway, and packard bell) I press alt+F10, alt+F11, F10, and then F11, and keep doing that, until it starts loading the recovery partition.

If that does not work, your computer may not have a restore partition, and you will need recovery discs. Usually you can obtain these from the manufacturer, but they will often charge for this.

Restoring WIndow Vista


No, windows backup will only restore your data, for example My documents, Desktop, User settings, and Outlook data.
To restore the system you will need a windows install disk, or if your computer has a restore partition(like many dell, packard bell etc.), you can use the restore windows utility from partition.
