Take a genuine microsoft windows xp / vista install disc and put it in the drive. Reboot the system and boot off the cd. The windows setup will start. Delete the existing partition using the wizard, then install windows to the blank area.

Everything on the laptop will be wiped out, replaced by a blank installation of windows xp / vista.

If you don't have one, you'll have to buy or find a copy.

Im trying to restore my dell pc back to factory settings its running vista f8 is not working i can only use f2 and f12


I would recommend using the Dell factory restore DVD. It probably didn't come with your computer (companies save money by not shipping a DVD with the computer). You can order it from Dell and it will probably cost less than $20.
Many times the restore function by hitting a special function key at startup becomes corrupt and doesn't work.
I'd opt for a new DVD to use.

I have emachines model W3650 and want to know how to set back to factory setting.


(1) Go to start menu(2) Click on all programs(3) click on Emachine(4) click on Emachine recovery management(5) Click on restore on the bar across the top(6) click on restore to system factory default
Some emachines can be restored by pressing ALT+F10, but not sure on your model. Give it a try if you can't restore it to factory defaults using Emachine recovery management.

Do i press f10 on my pc to restor back to factory settings and if so ive tried this and it didnt work who can i wipe the pc back to original state.


Try CTRL F10 or ALT F10 or CTRL F11 or ALT F11. These are the typical keys used to get the hidden"Restore Partition" to boot to a menu that can help you backup, repair or restore to factory-delivered state. NOTE, restoring to a Factory Delivered State will WIPE OUT ALL YOUR DATA AND ANY APPLICATIONS YOU HAVE INSTALLED SINCE YOU GOT THE COMPUTER. THIS MAY include email in Outlook, Outlook Express, other non-web based email programs.
Also, not all computers come with the hidden restore partition, and you may have to find your collection of factory D's to do this.

I have a packard bell imedia mc 1538 and need to resore to factory settings, have tried using F10 key with no result just goes to start up. The master cd just does a system restore and not the factory...


If the file that holds the factory settings is gone then there is no way to restore the factory settings back. You can however reinstall windows if you got a hold of a windows disc in the version you want. You can use the windows key on the computer somewhere to activate the windows. I would suggest doing a system restore the the last restore point and removing any unwanted things from there.

Im trying to get my pc to go to its original settings factort restore


The only way to restore your computer to factory setting with all the software/bloatware as it came with your computer the first day you start it up, you will need the factory restore disk that came with the computer if one is provide, if not usually with e-machine product, which doesn't provide you with a factory restore disk, you will have to create one yourself using a dvd-r. Usually you will have to go the the emachine recovery/back up management option in your menu programs and use that program to make the factory restore disk, after making that disc, you will need to insert the disc, and shuit down the computer and restart it. It will prompt you to follow direction once the factory restore disk is boot up. Follow the directions and you should be good to go. If there isn't a recovery managment program or a factory restore disk provided, you will need to contact emachine up.... usually they can send you factory restore disk for a small fee.
