Click the "Start" menu on your computer and choose "Accessories." Click "System Tools" and choose "Back up" from the list. This process will back up any files on your computer that you wish. When you reset your HP to its default settings, all documents, programs and other files on your computer will be lost. Back up anything you may need later. Follow the on-screen instructions to move through the back-up wizard. When given the option "Let me choose what to back up," select all programs or documents you want to save. If you're unsure whether you'll need it, back it up just in case. Insert a blank CD or DVD to save your files. Choose your CD drive from the "Back up location" option in the backup wizard. Keep multiple blank CDs or DVDs on hand. You'll need a lot of space, and typically several CD's, to back up all your information. Click "Finish" at the end of the back-up wizard and it will begin to burn information to the CD or DVD. When prompted, remove the CD and insert a new one. Continue until the computer is done backing up your information. Label each CD or DVD in the order you burn it. This way you can transfer your information back into the computer in the order you saved it. Check your CDs or DVDs to make sure the back up was complete by opening a file from the CD. Exit any open programs. You are now ready to start the restoration process. Click the "Start" menu, "All Programs," "System Recovery," and choose "PC Recovery." Choose "PC Recovery" again once the menu opens and click "Next." Your computer will restart automatically. When it turns back on, a welcome message for the PC Recovery software will display on screen. Click "OK." Select the "System Recovery" option to restore the computer to its default settings. Follow any on-screen instructions and wait for the computer to finish resetting your settings to the default. Insert your first back-up CD or DVD to start reinstalling your programs after boot-up. Open the files and save them to the computer. After you've saved everything from the first CD, continue on with the rest. Hope this helps.

How can i reset my toshiba m205 to factory setting


You have to use the factory restore CD that came with your computer, or you can use (if you have no factory restory CD, it possibly has a restore drive) the restore drive which you'll have to boot on startup through the bios.

Otherwise, if none of these options exist for you; Buy a new cd is all you can do.

Need to reset acer aspire 1200 desktop


The Aspire One is a netbook produced by Acer; it does not come equipped with a CD ROM drive, so a traditional hard drive reformat and Windows reinstallation is not possible without a peripheral storage device. An external USB CD or flash drive will suffice, however.Difficulty:Moderate



Instructions

    • 1 Plug in the external CD drive, then turn on your netbook and let it boot to your operating system.
    • 2 Open your web browser and go to the BootDisk website (see link in Resources). Download the Windows XP Fresh Install Bootable CD, then burn these files to a blank CD via your external CD drive.
    • 3 Ensure the files have burned to your bootable CD, then restart the netbook with the CD still in the drive.
    • 4 The netbook should boot to the CD upon the restart. Follow the instructions prompted for installation. Upon completion you will have a clean installation of Windows XP on your Acer Aspire One.

Is it possible to do a factory reset on a CDJ1000? (pitch issue)


There is no mention of a factory reset in the Mk1 service manual. The firmware can be upgraded - Mk1 & Mk2's need to go to Pioneer / Videotec, Mk'3 can be upgraded from CD.

The pitch may just be faulty, look here for a replacement :-

How to rest to facory settings?


Hello Sir,
There can be 2 resets which can be done. The one is BIOS Reset and the Other is the OS Reset. If you want to get the Laptop to Factory settings then you have to do a OS Reset. For this you need to get the Operating System Recovery CD. Insert the CD and boot the CD. The Recovery Procedure will automatically start and the Computer will guide you through the rest of the Procedure. Follow the Computer's instructions and the laptop will be restored to Factory Settings. ' Reply me if you have any doubts or problems.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Need to reset factory nec powermate as daughter has forgotten password as admin


You can reset by downloading a password restore iso file and creating a bootable CD from this if you have a CD writer on another computer. Otherwise check the NEC website on how to restore the original factory image (but you will lose all installed programs and user files).

Or use a friends PC to make a bootable floppy or CD.

http://www.loginrecovery.com you can make a bootable floppy disk or CD from this site.
