SOURCE: fail to reinstall the OS from the original disc it came with

acaramete

That is a good point the disk you have may be a restore disk. If it is you should be able to install the restore image by pressing F12 from boot to get the load from CD option.

The other question I have is what happened that cause you to have to reinstall in the first place. I would like to know as this might point to a bigger problem.

SOURCE: eeepc 701 won't restart after reinstalling OS

you probably have the solid state hard drive (4gb)... its not big enough to hold all the updates .. unfortunately the operating system comes with "auto update" turned on ... it will download updates until the drive is full then will crash .. one way to resolve this is to kill the internet so it cant log on ... you can disconnect or turn off your wifi or if you are fast enough you can use Fn F2 (turns off wifi) .. just watch the wifi light to make sure its off at boot .. there is a lag in response so its a bit tricky ...now once booted you can turn off "auto update" ...then you can turn your wifi or internet back on .. manually update only things you know you have room for .. if your 701 has a CF card slot (like my eeepc 900a . then that can be used as additional hard drive space ... during installation i made that the boot drive (advanced) (of course you cant remove it after that).. the new eeebuntu4 beta is a wonderful upgrade for the system .. but i could only get it working by using thhe CF drive as above.. if you havent already done so you can make a bootable USB jump drive .. you can run Ubuntu off that as well as install from that ...change the boot order in cmos ..to boot first from the Jump dirve ...

Reinstall windows 7


Most laptops have what is known as a recovery partition on the hard drive. This partition has a mirrored image of the factory-installed original configuration. Check your users manual to see to how access this partition. If you can boot Windows, some manufacturers have set up the ability to do the recovery from the OS. If the OS is so badly messed up that your can't boot to it, there is usually a hotkey combination that you press at bootup to get to the recovery routine. You may also have received or made a set of recovery discs when you purchased the laptop. These can also be used to return the unit to factory fresh condition. If you have neither, you will need to use a Windows 7 Installation Disc. This will install the OS, but will in most cases, not have all the drivers you will need to activate all the installed peripherals such as network NIC, sound, bluetooth, etc. These drivers can be found and downloaded from the manufacturer website. You need to know the Model number of the unit and the OS you are trying to download drivers for.

Need to go back to factory settings i have a virus


To clear the virus, the first thing you need is to find the original discs (CD's) that came with your system.
Second, find a friend that knows how to re-install the OS and let that friend do it if you are not comfortable because it's a lengthy process and you will need to re-install all the original drivers too in order for your system to work properly.
Good Luck

My Dell Dimension 2400 has stopped working - how do i restore the factory settings ?


Hello,

It appears your model Dell 2400 should have been supplied with the CD's for reinstalling Windows XP, CD will be green or blue in color and the drivers and applications that came with the computer.

If so, back up your files first to an external drive and then put the CD in the CD drive and reboot the computer. It should come up to reinstall XP.

If good to go, you will be prompted to install the second Cd as well as online XP updates.
Software that was installed after you bought the computer also wouyld have to be reinstall as well as restoring your backed up file.

Rememberm all data is lost when you reinstall your operating system, unless these is a choice on install that may ask for destructive, or non-destrutive (keeps files).

I am attaching a link to Dell for your to copy and paste into your web browser for the support page for drivers and user guide in the event you need to reveiw the process.

How to restore my Dell Optiplex 170L without losing my XP professional OS


Try CTRL + F11 when powering up.

What this does (or should do) is initialize Dell's System recovery utility. It will restore the system back to it's factory original state (the state the system was in when it left the factory). This won't remove the operating system, but if you've upgraded the OS or made significant custom changes to the computer (software wise) you may lose all the changes. If XP professional is the original OS on the system when you bought it, the recovery will leave the OS on the system. If you've upgraded to Pro, and you still have your install disc, or have access to an install disc and your XP Pro product key, you can reinstall XP Pro after the recovery.

VGN TX650P FN keys and AV buttons are not working after reinstalling windows and drivers.


i,

It depends how you reinstalled the OS in the computer, was it using the recovery discs or retail XP disc. Using recovery discs if you are installing, everything should work fine. This scenario may occur if you have used a retail OS disc to reinstall the OS.

Anyways try the below mentioned troubleshooting steps:

Install the Original Video Driver from the below link:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNTX650PB&upd_id=2149&os_id=7

After this install Origial VAIO Event Sevices:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNTX690P&upd_id=1975&os_id=7

Then, install VAIO Event Service Update.

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNTX650PB&upd_id=2287&os_id=7

At last, install the AV Mode Utility app:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNTX650PB&upd_id=2040&os_id=7

Install the drivers in the same order, this should work. VAIO Event Services take cares about the FN keys, after installing all these drivers, restart the computer and check if the VAIO Event Service is running at the startup.

Thanks!!!!

How do you reset the ibm think pad to factory settings


Restore to factory settings is a misnomer in that it doesn't exist if you didn't create a back up disc when you first got the PC/Laptop.. You can do a clean reinstall wich is the nearest you'll ever get

You will need an Operating System disc which you will need to buy.

A back up of your drivers.

Reformat the drive and reinstall the OS and Drivers and that's it.

The Question remains "Why do you need to do it?"

How can i reset the whole lap top (acer aspire 5735)


If you need to reset it to factory values, turn it off, turn it back on but keep pressed the F8 key until you see the BIOS configuration.

Select default values, save changes and exit. It will restart with the factory values.

I need to restart my laptop to factory settings


if you want it to be factory settings, you would need the exact same Operatin Sytem installation disk which they probably didnt give you. The reason i say the same is because your serial numbers wont match as your original OS. Anyways if you only doing it to sell the laptop or two have a fresh Operating system, i would recomend you !1) Get a copy os Windows XP
2) Backup all your important files
3) Format your laptop and reinstall XP
4) Restore your files
5) Download (If you dont have it already) your drivers for your laptop. This can be found on Toshibas website.
6) Install all drivers and thats it. You have a Factory Set Laptop
