Yes, you can!

You will need the original cds that came with the PC. (if you do not have them, you can request a copy from emachines).

This are the instruccions (from the user manual)

1. Turn on the computer.
2. Insert the Restore CD #1 into the optical drive (D:) before your computer boots up.
3. Restoration procedures will be started.
4. When the Microsoft Windows Startup Menu appears, type the number 1 and press Enter.

CAUTION
If you select “1. RESTORE WINDOWS XP,” you will lose all data in the hard disk (C:).

System Restore Menu / WINDOWS XP
1 RESTORE WINDOWS XP
2 BOOT TO COMMAND PROMPT FROM CD-ROM
Please select 1 or 2: _ [1, 2]?

5. Select "1. RESTORE WINDOWS XP,"
It will ask you to press any key. (do it)

6. It will show another warning. To continue press "Y"

7. The restoration process will start.

If you have a Cd Rom called a Recovery Disk that usually comes with the computer. You can reformat the computer to it's original configurations. You will lose all data. It will be as if you took it right out of the box. Or on some computers you can do a Recovery only withour reformatting the PC. you will have to reinstall all updates , programs, etc. you turn off the computer and install the disc then you restart the computer. The disk will give you the option to Recover Only or Recover and Format.

RESET TO FACTORY SETTINGS


What type of Laptop ? and operating system on it ?

Restoring your laptop to factory settings can take up to an hour to perform, depending upon the type of laptop and operating system on your machine. Prior to performing a system recovery, you should remove any external peripherals, such as ExpressCards, PC Cards, and USB-connected printers and hard drives. Turn on the laptop. Press the "F8" key until the "Advanced Boot Options" screen appears. Select "Repair Your Computer" using the arrow keys. Press the "Enter" key. Choose your "Language," then "Next." Login with an administrator-level username and password. Click "OK. Select "Dell Factory Image Restore," then "Next." Tick the check box next to "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition." Click "Next." Click on "Finish" after the computer has concluded the factory restoration. b> Restore on an HP b> Insert the HP recovery disk. Restart the computer, and press the "F11" key. Press the "F" key to "reinstall factory settings." If your computer's operating system is damaged, you may only see "perform a full system recovery" as an option. In this case, press "R." Insert any disks if prompted by the restoration program. Otherwise, permit the computer to restart as needed. b> Restore Via Disks (Generic) b> Insert the "Recovery Disk" or "System Recovery Disk." If you have more than one disk, make sure you insert "Disk 1" or "Part 1." Press any key to boot from CD if prompted to do so. Choose a "Full System Restore," "Restore Factory Settings," or another option worded similarly. Confirm that you want to perform the restoration. Press "Next," "Yes," or "OK," as needed. Press "Finish" or "Restart" when prompted by the computer. Hope this helps.

HOW DO I SET MY LAPTOP BACK TO FACTORY


For (Operating Systems=windows98,xp,vista)
unless you have a custom program to do this you can only restore back using (system restore) however that will not restore it to factory settings.. the best way is simply re-installing the Operating system after Formatting your entire Harddisk space (all partitions)
If you don't know how to do it.. then simple follow the instructions after booting the windows CD
PS: to boot windowsxp cd you have to set BIOS settings (F2 or F10 or Del Button at start of computer) to boot CD before HDD..

There is no simple restore factory settings in Laptops

Emachine t2042


*.GHO files are Norton Ghost images that are used by some OEM's to create a factory defuault image. When you restore this it should set the pc back to the same condition it was in when u purchased it however this will erase all your personal data on the drive.

If you are getting this error it means that the ghost image you are using to restore the PC is corrupted and cannot be used. eaither the CD is trying to read this data from a corrupted restore partition or the restore disk you have is bad (sometimes the disk may look fine- no scratches or anything and still be bad)

Try checking the disk for scratches or smudges but if you dont find any you can clean off the disk you will have to contact e-machines for a replacement disk.

Restore factory settings


sir windows NT does no provide a factory settings... best solution is to overwrite the OS with the same OS... to do so first backups your files and check for some restoration points on your system restore settings....

click the window button, press all programs then accessories then system tools...

if there is an oldest restore point choose it..

after restoring your system to the oldest settings... put the OS cd and let it autorun...

choose the overwrite the present OS or something like that... after reinstalling you will see all default settings and programs back where you want them.
