If you are talking about the  BIOS settings, go into the setup routine  and change the settings to the default or safe settings and then save them. If you are refering to software go to the Windows  RESTORE and restore your computer to the earliers date that it will alow you to do. If your computer came with a restore disk, or restore function Run it.  I hope this helps.

Enter the bios by pressing F2 during the first seconds of the boot. Then look for "restore to factory settings".

I forgot my password on my desk top computer its an older gateway running windowsxp. how do I reset my password or restore the computer to factory settings?


Just take out its bios battery [back-up lithium battery; disc type]; thus disable the bios memory. The re-insert the battery. All bios settings will be lost, but no data loss will occur. You have to re-set the bios settings, by holding F1 button during startup.

I have D-link router hooked up to desk top computer and then the wireless laptop has not problem but my son has a netbook that when he goes on line I lose my connection to D-link and have to reboot in...


Take away your son's netbook.
The final solution is a factory reset of your router. You can do a factory reset by logging into the router using you browser. Go to the settings and perform a factory reset

If you forgot the router password, you ill have to do a factory reset by locating a small hold on the back of the router and insert the tip of of paper clip for about 10 seconds while the power is on. The router will be reset to out of box status and then you can set-up form scratch.

I could not get my sylvania netbook to connect to my wifi so i download the update from their website to a SD card then opened on the netbook and it deleted everything on the netbook. how can i restore it...


I do not know why your icons disappeared by running the Download, but your programs are still in the on board ROM memory and what you are missing are your desk top icons. I have tried to duplicate your download problem but so far have not been able. I know that using a SD card will not download a usuable file so I used a thumb drive.

Any way please read the following solution that I wrote to another poster.

If you have deleted the icons for those programs on your desk top, then they may be in your Recycle trash bin. double click on Recycle Bin look for the icon for recorder, right click on recorder and select restore. You really cannot delete the programs from your machine as they are retained in a ROM chip , hard coded into the chip and are loaded each time you cut your machine on. The only thing you can do is delete the icons on the desktop, which are sent to the recycle bin.
To retore the machine to factory settings, there is a small hole just about an inch down from the data plate on the back. Using a pencil point or a straightened paper clip, insert the bject into the hole and hold for about 5 seconds. Your deleted icons are not replaced.
A second method to restore your icon is to click on my computer right click on the recorder, select copy, dismiss my computer, find a blank spot on your desktop and right click on that spot, select paste, and a dos type icon appears as your recorder button. When you cut the machine of and back on the Dos type icon is replaced with a CE type icon
To restore all icons:
You can: If you can click on start, click on run, type desk top into the open space and ok it. your icons should be shown. you will have to copy and paste each one back to your desk top, or select edit and then select select all, then click on file, select send to, and select desk top as short cut.

Bios setting problem


This happens because Windows is corrupted.

You need to start the computer with a windows install disk, or a factory recovery disk inside to reinstall the system.

Get a windows install disk and reinstall the system.
