I want to restore my dell vostro 3500 to factory image


You'll need restore disks or if there is a restore partition on the hard drive then you can restore it from there. It will be less problematic to get some anti virus software to rid the computer of a virus.

My computer keeps shutting off at random times. I would like to set my Laptop back to factory settings. How can I accomplish this task?


  • Take account of any files or programs you still want to use after the Toshiba laptop is restored back to its factory settings. Transfer the files to a backup location, such as a USB flash drive or external hard drive.
  • 2 Restart the Toshiba Satellite laptop's operating system. Wait for the Toshiba logo to appear on the screen.
  • 3 Press the key that brings up the hard drive disk utility menu. Depending on the specific model of your Toshiba Satellite laptop, the key will either be "0," "F1," or "F8."
  • 4 Press "1" or click "Restore Original Factory Image." Click "Yes." Select "Next" to begin the restoration process.
  • 5 Restart the Toshiba laptop computer when the restoration process finishes running. Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to set up the laptop's date, time and language settings.
  • 6 Transfer the backup copies of the data you saved earlier back to the Toshiba's hard drive. Re-install any programs you need, such as your software firewall or anti-virus tool.

    Cant restore to factory settings tried 0,f1 and f8 none work


    When your Toshiba Satellite laptop goes on the fritz, there are several instances where the best solution is to delete everything and start over. If your system frequently crashes or you can't remove a specific virus, you may want to restore the laptop back to original factory settings. While the easiest way to restore the system is to use the operating system restore disc, it is possible to restore the system without it. Each Satellite laptop also includes a hard drive recovery utility that lets you restore the operating system without the restore disc.

    1. Take account of any files or programs you still want to use after the Toshiba laptop is restored back to its factory settings. Transfer the files to a backup location, such as a USB flash drive or external hard drive.

    2. Restart the Toshiba Satellite laptop's operating system. Wait for the Toshiba logo to appear on the screen.

    3. Press the key that brings up the hard drive disk utility menu. Depending on the specific model of your Toshiba Satellite laptop, the key will either be "0," "F1," or "F8."

    4. Press "1" or click "Restore Original Factory Image." Click "Yes." Select "Next" to begin the restoration process.

    5. Restart the Toshiba laptop computer when the restoration process finishes running. Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to set up the laptop's date, time and language settings.

    6. Transfer the backup copies of the data you saved earlier back to the Toshiba's hard drive. Re-install any programs you need, such as your software firewall or anti-virus tool.

    My pc is infected, and I need to reboot it to its factory settings.


    Restore your Laptop to Factory Settings is an EASY utility BUILT into Windows -- it CLEANS EVERYTHING...computer and hardware. But, it is HANDY. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('.intro .thumbnail a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a06/6v/d1/reboot-laptop-back-factory-settings-800X800.jpg'); }); Rebooting your laptop back to its factory settings restores your computer and its hardware to its original settings when it was purchased. This is helpful when troubleshooting major hardware and system performance issues. It can also be used to fix virus related issues. Restoring your computer to its factory settings is similar to performing a clean install of your operating system. Windows uses a utility program called System Restore that allows you to restore your computers settings to a specific date.
    jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Easy Instructions
    1. Step 1 Turn on your computer, and then click on the "Start" menu icon in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Select "All Programs," and then click on the "Accessories" drop-down menu.
    2. Step 2 Scroll down to "System Tools," and then select the "System Restore" program and wait for it to open.
    3. Step 3 Select the "Restore My Computer to an Earlier Time" option, and then click on the "Next" button to continue. A window with a calendar will appear.
    4. Step 4 Click on the back arrow in the calendar's window. Click on the back-arrow until you have reached the date you either purchased or installed Windows on your Notebook. Select the appropriate date, and then click on the "Next" button to continue. Your computer will automatically restart.

    I have a Dell Latitude Laptop. When I pick up the laptop a certain way it starts doing things on it's on; launching programs, closing programs, typing " ", going to a previous page on the internet......


    Please scan the system for viruses. If your system has viruses, all you can do is a PC restore which is taking the system to the factory default settings. Please back up the data before performing the PC restore.

    Slow computer -how to restore a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro v1000


    If the units are running slow, you can do some maintenance on them to speed them up.

    First, run defragmenter on both units.(in Safe mode)

    Download ScrubXP which will automatically clear your temp, cookies and TIF files.

    Download CCleaner and run it.

    Run your Anti-virus program: download the free version of AVG. (Great virus protection.)

    Other programs to use are SpyBlaster and Winpatrol, all of which are free.
    This should help, if you feel that you need to format and restore the units, youcan do so. But try this first.
