If you have a separate partition for recovery, boot to that. You can tell if you have a separate partition by clicking My Computer and seeing how many are listed under Hard Disk Drives. The first one is generally C and the next partition or drive would be D.
If your laptop came with a recovery disc, insert that into the cd drive and reboot your computer. That will wipe everything and start fresh for your dad.
Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks for using Fixya.com and please rate this accordingly.

@ Mikey no Mikey I want to reset my Multipad back to factory settings like it was when I got it new because I am giving it to member of my family to use


f you have the restore disks you can reload it to the way it was from the factory. If the laptop is from Hewlett Packard or Compaq they have a restore program on the computer and you can restore it that way too as long as you did not remove the software partition on the computer. The program gives you a couple of options in order to restore it. If you have information on it and want to get rid of it they usually have a restore option to format the hard drive before the reinstall takes place it should get rid of all your information off of it.

Reset acer


The Acer Aspire One is a netbook, not a laptop.
A netbook is a smaller, scaled-down version of a laptop. It does not have the memory capacity or graphics of a regular laptop.
It also lacks a CD drive, which means you cannot restore the Acer Aspire One with restore discs. Instead, the netbook has a built-in factory restore feature.
You can reset the Acer Aspire One to factory settings just using your keyboard.
Only restore your netbook to factory settings if you cannot fix the problem any other way.
Save any files or folders on your Acer Aspire One with flash drives.
Drag and drop files onto the icon of your flash drive.
Go to Start > Restart to reboot your netbook.

Hold down Alt and F10 when you see the Acer logo on the screen.
The recovery menu will load.
Hit Enter and then Next to see your recovery options.
Choose Factory Restore to set your netbook back to factory settings.
Follow the instructions on the screen.
Choose your time zone and language when the customization menu appears.
Reboot the netbook when you are prompted.
Restore your saved files from the flash drive.
or
When a vital file becomes corrupted, it might be necessary to restore a computer to its original factory settings.
This process also cleans up the hard drive and removes old programs that can make a computer slow and unresponsive.
But, because restoration wipes away all files you have installed or created, it should be a last-ditch effort in trying to repair a computer.
If you have reached this point with your Acer laptop or desktop, the manufacturer provides a utility to restore the factory settings.

Open the Windows Start menu by clicking on the icon in the lower left corner of your desktop.
Click All Programs, then the Acer folder.

Select Acer eRecovery Management to open the utility.
If a Windows prompt asks for permission to run the program, click Yes.

Click the Restore button in the pane on the left side of the program window.
Click Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults.
Select the Yes option in the dialog box that asks you to confirm the action, and click Start.
Click OK in the second confirmation dialog box to restart the computer.
Click Next in the warning window that appears after the computer reboots.
This confirms that you realize restoring the computer deletes any data stored on your hard drive.

Click Next again in the Restore Destination window, and click OK in the popup that gives you one last warning about deleting your data.
The restoration process will begin.

Click OK when the utility lets you know that the restoration is complete.
The computer will restart, and Windows will finish the recovery process.

Restore factory settings


If the computer comes with a hidden partition that can restore factory settings, then typically, you will hit ALT + F10 or F11 or F12 (you will have to try them one at a time) tap whichever one you are trying as soon as you push the power button and keep tapping until it goes to a restore screen. If you give the make & model of the computer, I can give better instructions. Some computers don't have a restore partition on the hard drive, so this is not an option.

How to restore hp pavilion dv4000 to factory settings


The way to restore most PCs to factory settings is to reinstall Windows. First, MAKE SURE you have the Windows disc that came with your computer and the drivers/utilities disc that came with it.

To start restoring, put the Windows disc in that came with your computer, and run it. Find the option to install/reinstall Windows, and select it (you may have to boot from the disc, which can be done by changing the boot order in BIOS settings). Follow the instructions Windows Setup gives you.

After you're done with that, don't freak out if the sound, wireless, touchpad, etc. isn't working. Insert the drivers/utilities disc now and install all the drivers that are on it onto your laptop.

You are now done with the restore process!

Need to bring computer back to factory settings Would like to bring my Aspire 9300 back to factory settings


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

This is an easy fix! To wipe it clean and make it run like new, while your computer is starting up, press Alt+F10 repeatedly. It will go to factory restore screen, which will ask you to confirm if you wish to completely restore it. Please be advised that if the computer goes to normal start up again, you must turn computer off and restart process as soon as it is starting up. I have done this to several Acers myself and it took me a few tries when i was 'new' to these steps. Also, please save any files or pics in email or upload them to a site if you wish to keep them. This will remove everything you have saved on your computer!

Please rate this solution if it was helpful!

How do i reset my laptop to factory settings after installing vista


If you have removed the restoration partation while installing VISTA, you are done.
If you did not backup your programs before installing VISTA, you are done.
If however you had VISTA on the unit and you have re-installed it on the same, you may have a chance.
The best way to restore you computer back to factory is from the restoration disks or partation.
You can aways contact acer for a restoration disk set.
Hope this info has helped.
