Hello,

Yes. Once we restore the computer is set back to factory settings all the functionalities along with sound and cd/dvd drive will work fine as the software,drivers along with saved data and corrupted files will be deleted and a fresh copy of windows will be installed.

In order to perform a restore back to factory settings follow the steps below:

1. Turn off the computer completely.
2. Make sure the computer is connected to power adapter.
3. Press the power button to turn it back on and at the same time simultaneously keep tapping the ' F11 ' key on the keypad until you see a screen says 'welcome to hp recovery manager ' . you may here few beep sounds during this process. Select ' destructive recovery' option and follow the onscreen instructions to complete the process.

Note: This process may take an hour to complete and make sure to take a back up of your important data on to a cd or dvd as the process completely deletes all the files on the computer.

Thank you.

If you have a CD/DVD with the operating system on it, run that from your CD/DVD drive at start up. Do not attempt to try a windows restore from the computer hard drive. When the CD stops, you will have an option; Restore or Repair Option. Use that and try to fix the problem. If that fails, you will have lost what ever was on the hard drive and you must install Windows all over from anew.

Restore factory settings


On some computers, the disk-drive is "partitioned" into two parts -- your 'C:' drive and a 8GB "recovery" partition. If so, then when you start-up your computer, there is an option to boot from that Recovery Partition, and to reinstall Windows.

On some computers, there is software that lets you burn your own CD/DVDs that can then be used to reinstall Windows. Have 4 or 5 "blank" DVD disks, or 8 to 10 "blank" CD disks, before you run this software.

If you have "lost" the original disks, contact LG. For a small fee, they will ship you a replacement "System Recovery" CD/DVD set of disks.

Lost hard drive!


If you have the "System Restore" set of CD-ROMs that were shipped with the computer, you can use them to reinstall Windows to the "factory" settings.

If you no longer have those CD-ROMs, contact Fujitsu, and order a replacement set. $20 ? $20 for courier-shipping?

How do i use the restoration disks to fix my computer (restore it)


What you will want to do is find the First Restoration Disk and put it into the CD/DVD drive and restart the computer. When the Computer starts you will want to start the computer from the CD/DVD drive, and follow the directions that are on the screen to use the disks. Please remember every time when doing this Back-up everything you want to keep from being lost!!! Even more so now that you are restoring the computer, there are times that the restoration disks will not allow you the option of repairing the installation and go straight to Complete Factory Defaults.

Hi,
Restart you system then while your system is rebooting Press Alt+F10 repeatedly this should bring you to the Acer recovery screen If this doesn't occur try it again you may have missed the cue. When the recovery screen appears select "restore to factory defaults". Before you do this remember to back up all your important files. This will wipe everything out except the factory installed programs so yes you will need to reinstall all your extra programs. A good idea is to back up all your documents, pictures, music etc to a CD/DVD or external hard drive before you start the recovery process.


Good Luck

Lost internet


Try to get an external dvd drive and hook it up to the laptop. Choose the external drive as your boot device and then boot up off of the disk so you can restore your laptop back to factory defaults.
