Prior to re-installing your OS, backup all your documents..
Insert your recovery disk cd on the cd rom drive and reboot your pc.

As it reboots press any key to continue so it will boot from cd and delete the partition, create a partition and active it.

Then install the OS which goes to C:\ drive. After the installation is complete install all the drivers and the applications. You can go to the manufacturer's website and download others drivers as needed.

Activate Windows then go to Microsoft Update

I need to restore to the factory settings


Hello,

In restoring your system back to factory settings, you will need the recovery disc. The title of it is "Application and drivers".

Or go to this site http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/support/items/faq/71

I need to know how to restore my Compaq Presario 2700 to factory setting because it has crashed.


If you have the original recovery disc for the laptop, then I would re-install your operational system to bring it back to factory setting. If you do not have the disc go to www.compaq.com for customer support to see if they have the disc available.

Gateway laptop reset


Gateway Direct systems went "media-less" back in September 2004. In the event of a system crash users could either 1) restore their systems from the Recovery Partition OR 2) from the backup media that they were prompted to create on first power-up -- which would provide them with up to 5 blank CD-R discs depending on their system's configuration.

On the factory load of the hard drive, the recovery partition will not contain operating system files. It only contains application and driver files.
The first time the recovery partition is used, it prompts the user to insert their System Recovery CD/DVD to copy files from the CD to the recovery partition.
The Drivers and Applications CD is not bootable and does not contain Operating System files.
The System Recovery CD/DVD is bootable but does not contain any application or driver files.
If the end-user erases the hard drive and restores the computer using the System Recovery CD/DVD and an Applications and Drivers CD, the recovery partition is not recreated.

This means that you will need the operating system restore disc FIRST then the recovery partition will work for you

Forced to Shutdown on boot-up. Messed by wrong usage of Combofix


Drivers for Acer products may be found on the Acer support page ( http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/ ). Search for the product and download the drivers. Alternatively, the factory installed drivers and applications can be re-installed by using Acer eRecovery.
Follow these steps:
  1. Press ALT and F10 to start Acer eRecovery.
    Please note: It will be prompt to enter or create a password. This password will be required to use eRecovery in the future. Forgetting this password will require the use of the recovery discs to reformat the system.
  2. In the next window, select Restore or Recovery. This will vary from system to system.
  3. Choose Reinstall Applications/Drivers
  4. Choose Install
  5. Click on Windows on the left side of the page.
  6. Choose driver or applications.
  7. Choose the item to install
  8. On the right, click the install link and follow the prompts.
  9. The system may restart when installation is complete. If it does not restart, manually shutdown and restart the computer.
If a set of recovery discs was created, or received when the system was purchased, the factory installed drivers and applications may be reinstalled from that media as well. Start the computer and insert the System CD (or the first disc) and browse the disc and choose which item to install.

Restoring factory setting


you should have received some discs when you bought the PC...if not, try looking in your programs list for the application to create the Recovery discs.
Some, not all Compaq's have a F10 recovery (at boot press F10)

be sure to save your personal data to another source (USB stick, CD...etc)

Need to set R3000 Compacq laptop to factory settings.


Compaq? Oh, then you are going to have a hard disk partition with the recovery files, so you don't need the disks. You have made it, that's great, because in case you cannot access the hard disk, you cannot initiate a recovery without ordering recovery CDs for your model from HP.

There are a number of ways to do it.

Try pressing F9 at startup (when the Compaq or HP logo shows up), and if it doesn't work, see the key for System Recovery at the bottom of the screen. It will recover, just follow the instructions on the screen.

Also, you can insert the first disk anytime, or boot from it when you start the PC up.

Or, you can use the Recovery Manager software in the PC that is pre-installed and it will help you to do a System Recovery from the files on your recovery partition.

Please rate this answer, I badly need it.
