Grab a disk of what ever software you have i.e: xp, vista and place it in the cdrom drive. reboot your computer and it should instruct you to press any key to boot from cd. once that is done follow instrucions to reinstall the OS. once that is done don't forget your drivers cd :)

Ok. turn on your computer.. press F5 while booting.. then choose SAFE MODE> choose NO for option b4 entering safe mode. and then the restore point date will pop up. choose the date that you want to restore or basically the date that you just bought your computer. or just nearer to it.
note: this is only applicable it you restore option is in RESTORE ON mode. otherwise you cannot restore your system the day you bought it.. hope this wold work.. goodluck.!

You need a restoration disc that may have with your PC or you can obtain one from the PC manufacturer. For some PCs the restoration software may already be in your hard drive. You can go to My computer to find out or check under Programs in the Start menu. You can also use system restore (assuming u have win xp) by going to start - all programs - accessories - system tools - system restore. then select the restore point.

How to default computer system? It's like a new one.


You did not specify what brand of computer or operating system.

general advice:

To do a factory restore and set the computer software back to like when you first purchased it:

Windows XP:

You will need to visit the manufacturer's website and order the restore cd.

Windows Vista and 7:

Start the computer and tap F11 button. This will bring you to the factory restore wizard and allow you to erase everything on hard drive and install like the day you brought it home from the store.

I have a t5082 emachine desktop and i want to dump it back to its original default settings


For that you need recovery disk or winxp or vista bootable disk.
Then boot your computer with disk.
When you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as your cd / dvd rom.
Then save and exit .
Then it boot with disk.
Then follow the procedure and if you want previos windows then choose "r" option for repair.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks.

How do I reboot it? Compaq 5716 runs very slow Can't download anything paid for interent and the computer just freezes. I want to do a system restore where there is nothing on the computer like brand new.


There are different ways on how to reboot a computer. If your laptop is not operational like it's frozen or crashed with the mouse frozen, try the simple steps below:

1. The custom way to reboot your computer is to press and hold the power button until it shuts off. Then press the power again if you want to turn it back on.

2. If your computer is functional and you just want to reboot/restart it, click on Start then click on Turn Off and select Restart. It will restart your computer.

3. If you can't click on the Start button but your mouse is still functional, you can simply press the Ctrl + Alt + Del button on your keyboard to bring up the Task Manager. Then on the Task Manager window, click on Shutdown tab, then choose Restart.

4. If your computer wont turn off no matter what you do, like holding the power button and the steps above, try to unplug the power cable for few minutes then plug it back in. Try to turn on the computer again.

System Restore

Click on START > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

When you do System Restore, this feature will restore your computer's settings back to its normal or functional condition. You can just choose an earlier date where it was working fine. The good thing about system restore is it wont delete your recent saved files and data.

If you really want a clean hard drive/system like what you said (brand new), reformatting the hard drive and reinstalling Windows Operating System is what you need. You need your Windows installation CD to do it. Click on the links below on how to reinstall your Windows Operating System.

My laptop has got a virus and I cannot get it fixed no matter what I tried. I want to reinstall the operating system, but I don't know where my Operating System Disk is. Is there any other way to reinstall...


what is the brand of your computer? some branded computers have an image inside the hard drive which you just need to access like in some dell computers. try checking out the manufacturer. try also looking inside your hard hard drive or click my computer.. if there are more than 1 drive inside and you just have 1 hard drive installed chances are the other drive could be the factory image of your system which you can try to restore
for proper image restoration try to contact the manufacturer of your computer
