It should have come with a system restore disk. Back up what you want to save and load the disk and then reboot.

You can go to compaq.com and order the system restore disk if you can't find the one that came with the computer.

How do i restore it to factory settings?


First back-up all data- because all will be lost if you restore to factory settings

You can try "CTRL" + "F12" but that only works if there is a recovery console on a hidden partition ---otherwise
If you do not have a RECOVERY CD then contact Dell to purchase this Recovery CD for your model Dell computer or buy it on EBAY.
Boot up using the Recovery CD and follow the instructions.

The other way is to re-install Windows using a Windows installation CD; it must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop or on the side or back of the computer.

Boot up using the Windows installation CD and follow the instructions.
Next install all of the Dell's device drivers.
Next install the Windows service packs (SP2 & SP3 for XP, SP1 & SP2 for Vista)
Next Activate Windows via the Internet or by phone.
Next install all your programs - anti-virus etc.
Next click on Start - Programs - Windows Update (for the latest updates).
Next copy your data back to the computer

The device drivers for your model computer/laptop can be downloaded from the Dell WEB support site.

To download the drivers from Dell WEB site, select your model desktop or laptop, or a better option, type in the Service Tag number,this is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). The Service Tag will open the page where the drivers specific for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

My hard drive burnt out. The hard drive test says failed and the operating system won't boot. I placed a leftover hard drive from my Playstation 3 into the laptop and now it says no operating system found....


Try the recovery console from a windows xp recovery/install disk:
To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
1.Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3.Select the operating system you want to repair (you may have only one option).
4.When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5.At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation. From here I would try "chkdsk /r" and "fixboot"
For a list of commands that are available in Recovery Console, type recovery console commands or help at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
For information about a specific command, type help commandname at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
6.To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
Once you've done this restart the computer and see if it boots up.

Recovery disk for xp operating system


if your pc came with disc and you have lost them, contact the pc manufracture and ask for replacement, you may need to pay for shipping or some sort of set fee.

if your computer did not come with recovery disk then do following.
most notebooks/desktops makers try to save money by not making recovery cd anymore, instead they put the recovery partition on the hard drive, which is hidden.
your computer should have come with recovery disc creator tool software from which you can make cd/dvds.

acer has e-recovery management tool built in.
here is your manual...

How do i reboot from scratch


I presume you want to restore your computer back to the original state when you first purchased the computer.
If you have a Recovery CD then you can boot up with this CD to start the restore process. If you have lost this CD then :-
Contact ASUS to purchase a Recovery CD for your model laptop.
The other way is to do a new Windows install. Use a Windows installation CD; it must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop.
You will also need to download the device drivers for your model laptop from the ASUS WEB support site, make sure the download the correct XP or Vista version of the drivers which matches the Windows version you are installing.

Toshiba Laptop Malfunction!!! PLEASE HELP!


Hi Sam

First of all sorry to hear your story. But I guess you shouldn't think there is no solution left. I am Toshiba Technical Specialist and I used to work for Toshiba. Toshiba recovery CD is obtainable from Toshiba. you can call their hotline number or you can go to Toshiba authorized dealer. Recovery CD Cost about $39 including shipping. Alternately there is no harm to use different XP Operating System as long its correctly installed. But for the drivers you need to download from http://support.toshiba.com (if you dont use the Recovery CD)

If you need further info please post your request.

Good Luck
